I have EVO brakes on my 2004 R1100S, which are integrated. The pump
'whines' when you apply either brakes. Some people complain about
them. I'm very happy with their performance. I have 21K on the bike.
I recently replaced the rear pads. The fronts are original.
Personally, I would not hessitate to buy another bike with them.
They are a PITA to bleed. It's not hard, but it is time consuming.
Dana Hager has a good write up on how to do it. The dealer charges
something like 3 hours to do this, so it's not cheap.
The vibration may be due to improper throttle body synchronization.
Hard to guess without seeing the bike.
