1090 Rear brake

Not happy with the rear brake on my 1090, seems to lack any real bite, how about others 1090 owners out there?

basically it feels like its good for hill holding while stopped, good for parking lot low speed turning, but as far as real bite, its got nothing if you actually want to really stop with it.

the ducati rear brakes are just as much of a joke, i'm convinced that the only thing they are good for is slow speed maneauvers and chassis settling braking into a turn.

Agreed, suits my riding style though as I only use a little trail brake to settle the bike into a corner.

my aprilia pegaso rear brake is excellent compared to the MV, come to think so is my old GT750 Suzuki!

Sometimes it isn't even a good hill holding brake! works for the qaround town business but definetly not for getting serious.

Got 4k on my 1090 now and to be honest think the rear brake is pretty good , however i do often clean the disc with brake cleaner which must help keep the pads as they should be .
Try it .

The front brakes are definaitly the best i have ever used and couldn't imagine any better .

yes the front brakes are excellent, tried some SBS sinter pads in the rear, even worse! will try the disc cleaner but this winter may be a cast iron rear disc if I can find one....

took the pads out and roughed them up with some emery paper, changed the pedal position, pulled in the heel guard so I can get my foot over the pedal better.... now much improved.
