The dealer worked the steering head bearing and it seems better. I'm concerned that it may return.

Fuck this. I will rather buy 20 year old Honda and enjoy lousy but working suspension and engine.
Shame, it could be realy good bike for me (R version, second hand of course, because price of the new one is ridiculus).

my 990 was the same, enough play to make a noticeable click. I think it is normal.

This is why they called "floating" disks, there is VERY small amount of movement but normally on a new bike, no clicking. My RXV450 used to slap quiet nicely but all my Superbikes which the 1190 is comparative to in braking, should be quiet.

I've been to two dealers 900km apart, both could not "feel" the movement but when you brake a solid "clunk" through the bars can be felt, inspection should the bearing were no longer in spec, both tightend up and after that no more clunking under braking. Last job was to locktite the header...problem solved so far.

The float is supposed to be lateral, not in the direction of travel. I've never seen floating disks with that much play.

I thought some of the 990 LC8s had this problem... I'll see if I can find it.

Edit: Here are a few

I rode with two other 1190's yesterday and asked them about the disk noise and told them what i had discovered was the cause for mine. They both had the same noise, my 950 had floating disks and they never moved for and aft enough to make this clicking noise plus it has taken 1000 mile for this to appear but as long as it doesn't get any worse I won't worry about it.
