Does anybody have the same problem?
Both rims are looking bad due to brake dust that has burned through the anodized surface?
In just one year both rims ande spokes are being replaced by my dealer (for free Embarassed Very Happy )

Also the head-bearring(s?) is gone, and is being replaced under the same conditions. I never make wheelies, only drive onroad to work and back...

Sorry cant say I have ever heard of it, luckily you are getting them sorted under warrenty, you ought to speak to your dealer and find out if these will be covered when your warrenty expires as you have already had trouble with them as if they are not covered it could become expensive.....

Well problem was...mine weren't black but silver. Crying or Very sad
Anyway, they said it had to do with the brakepads too, and I didn't watch the bill to good, but they changed the brakepads too. Only thing: on my costs Confused Confused (after 6400 km) they weren't even half way down.
