on the plus side that looks like the sort of wear/pitting that I would expect on a vehicle that's been stood up for a fair while so if low miles etc could be a sign that its genuine(if neglected)

Hi Alan

Take a look at the link from the motorcycle testers manual and the failures aloud on the test regarding brakes. Hope this helps.

if youre referring to the surface wear/pitting on the disc I can only speak for car tests as I don't do bikes and it would be a pass,have had to pass far worse than that,personally I would have advised it but that aint compulsory and is down to the individual tester.

A couple of photos from a recently purchased GS 1200.
Picked the bike up on a wet day and took the bike for a run. Got home and gave it a right good wash and found these.
My question is, would these fail a MOT?
I feel the bike should not have been sold in this condition.
