Question about warped rotors
So...I am pretty sure that my '96 Blade needs at least new pads, and I am nearly mechanically inept when it comes to motorcycles...okay, so my question is, how do I know if my rotors are warped?
Low speed braking is pretty grabby, and I do have to pull the lever in fairly far. The thing is, when I brake from higher speeds, I get a shuddering feeling.
Now, the bike tracks straight on its own, and I only get this feeling when braking.
Could it be that my rotors are warped?
Could it be my front tire?(it's a bit worn, but not too bad. The rear is pretty new)
Should I just shut up, leave you all alone and have the dealer inspect it?
Sorry for my sh*tty discription, but I am no mechanic, but I am learning.
