    Pulsating brakes.

    I just want to share how I took care of this problem on my 2013 R1200RT with 32K miles on the clock.
    Every motorcycle I own always developed some type of this low speed annoying feel witch this time I decided to cure different way, instead of replacing front brake rotors I just moved (right side) front rotor two mounting positions ahead and that did cured all of that.
    If anybody want to try this, remember to use (blue) Loctite on the threads and properly torque all fasteners.

    Huh? Do you mean you removed the right side rotor, rotated it 144 degrees (two holes), and then reinstalled it? Be sure to check your disk runout as that will cause uneven disk thickness and the "pulsating" (judder) you are experiencing.

    The correct fix would be to measure your disk runout and thickness at various circumferential locations and, if out of limits, replace them.

    Yes, it's correct: 360 degrees divided in five equals 72 x 2 = 144
