Hi guys this is my first time posting but have been reading for about a year ,i have about 8000 miles on my ten and loving everyone of them but i have noticed the disks become sloppy should the 2 piece rotors have slop? the gold part is solid to the rim but the disk itself moves ,my neighbor has an 06 636 and his does not do this and they look like the same breaks. And i recently changed tires to metzlers m1 sport-tec tires and have noticed the bike is harder to push in to the turns at speeds 45 and above im thinking it may have something to do with the ride height of the bike ,maybe , any help would be great help thanks

welcome noob :wink:

yes the rotor itself is designed to move laterally ever so slightly due to the 7 semi-floating buttons that attach the disc to carrier so no worries mate. :thumbsup:
as for the increased effort required with the new M1's thats fairly normal partly due to the roundish profile and perhaps just a bit taller sidewall despite it being the same 120/70 not all brands are exactly that so if your inclined to experiment try raising the tubes 3mm which lowers the front and see if it helps.
