Shudder

I'm right in thinking I need new front brake discs because when I break at any speed over 10mph
the steering wheel shudders. It doesn't shudder when driving at any speed, just when I break.

Could be a number of things suspension ball joints, track control arm bushes, track rod ends,
If the discs are warped, heavily scored, then yes as a starting point check the run out with a dial gauge but also check for loose calipers. 2013 FL2 XS.

I am sure that I read recently of a similar problem, and it was caused by a sticking brake calliper.

It was causing the disc to heat up, and was found by (carefully) feeling each wheel centre after the car had been used.

Sorry I have not had the time to find the original post. FL2 XS SD4 Auto 2010 2012-2017 (21k - 91k miles) (MY2011)

Always make sure the caliper slide pins are clean and greased, one of the more common causes of brake trouble.
