I got REAL close to buying a new ST but due to some BAD Dealer issues, and reading up on some serious braking reliability issues, scared me away! I went to Triumphrat.net and there are literally dozens of guys with '05 and '06 ST's with some serious brake issues the Dealer/Factory are saying is "No Problem", and won't stand behind the repairs. Apparently the 675 has a special coating on the caliper pistons that keep them from having the same issues but they won't put them in the ST's. Ther are even guys with '06 ST's that have gone to the junkyard and have installed Kawi ZX-9, and ZX-12 calipers and master cylinder to fix their own issues. Several there are talking about contacting the NHTSA to file an official complaint to have the brakes recalled. It just doesn't sound right to me for a new $12,000 bike, free saddlebags, or 2.9% financing or not. I hope you guys aren't having these issues, but the 2-St's I saw on the dealer floor had some serious mushy front brake levers. Any of you guys having these problems ??
