Here is what happening; i bought some used rotors and installed then with the same used pads i had on my bike.
Now, my front end shakes or vibrates when i apply the front brake.


Do you think its because of the used pads or
i was thinking the rotors might be bent. Is there any way how to check the rotors. I hate to buy new brakes pads and wouldnt some the problem.
Any ideas?

A dial indicator is basically a dial that has a "pin" that sticks out of it. The dial is mounted on a solid platform and the pin is placed aginst the object you wish to check. Once in position, you turn the object and the dial will indicate how out of round the object is. I tried to attach a photo, but I was unable to do it.

You can check by raising the wheel off of the ground and spinning the wheel. it should spin at a constant rate. If it binds, then you may have an issue. Also, if it is not binding, apply a little pressure on the breaks. If the wheel just stops at one point, then you may have an issue. This is a crude method, the dial is much better way.

I finally found out that the rotors that i bought from Racers Edge were warped., But this people (shop) are very responsible and stand behind on what they sell.
I took the rotors back and told them what happened and they return all my money without a problem.

Its hard to find a shop that will gladly refund your money on things you have bought.

Very nice Racers Edges
