    I've also been suffering from worsening brake squeal over the last 500 or so miles (bike now has 1200 on it) . I removed the pads and applied some Copperslip on the back and to the leading edges of the pad backing plates and now my brakes are totally silent. Haven't put a dial guage on my discs yet but now the only pulsing through the brake lever is when the ABS cuts in, previously the squealing was accompanied by a high frequency vibration through the lever.

    Yep as Billy says all is well. They replaced everything, discs, pads etc. I went for a run yesterday and up until now no squealing.

    Dealer did this the first time I had problems with the squealing. It worked for a few hundred miles before it started squealing again, hence the replacing of the discs etc... Be interesting to see if your problems return?

    Not a dodgy batch its a well known problem has been for years. My 2011 speed triple are warped at 4800 miles. this is because Triumph Discs are crap.when they put new ones in take them off and sell them and by some Brembo discs. they will put new onse on and they will only go again.I get my bike back tomorrow they say they have fixed mine. This will be utter bull shit. i will take the bike out tomorrow when i get it back and i am 99.9% the front will start to judder when they are warmed up. then i am putting Brembos on and will then get the Solicitors involved. If the Triumph dealer will not fix a known problem. then i have no choice.

    You say to buy some Brembo discs and mention further on about fitting Brembos but surely the discs on the Speed Twin are already Brembo's?? if you look at the pics I have posted you will see the small orange Brembo symbol on the actual disc.
    Also I wouldn't have thought that they would have fitted bog standard Triumph discs along with Brembo callipers etc, but hey being new to Triumph what do I know????

    The 2011 speed triple are sunstar discs
