I couldn't see any issues before hand but went and filed anyway.
Glad I did!

Savage isn't yours a 2017 model?
Thought KTM would have sorted this by now?
Sure is.
The pulsing was/ is still there.
I'm only new to KTM and thought what horrible brakes or has.
Found this thread and now the brakes no longer pulse.

I think my 2017 SDR is slightly pulsing and I agree that ktm should have sorted this by now. :(

Please file a complaint on the NHTSA website / your region's equivalent! Link below...

Having had this issue basically since I got my bike, I would like to say first of all to grommet: you ROCK! Thank you!
I have had this issue right from 2014 and have had the brakes looked at multiple times, tried to get KTM to pay for new rotors (they wouldn't) and paid to replace them myself. And the new ones have exactly the same problem. Now I am going to take them off and file down the mounting surface and hopefully fix it.

I have just gone to the HNTSA website and filed a complaint. If there are enough complaints, KTM have to issue a recall. I beg each and every one that has or has had this issue to do the same thing, this is a manufacturing flaw related to brakes, they should not be able to get away with this!
