2017 B3 Rear Brake

Something I'm noticing recently, when on a hill my rear brake wont hold me when setting off. On a side road I wanted to see how much pressure it took to engage and I have to depress the lever quite a bit to feel ANY sort of braking. In fact my heel is off the peg and I have to push to rotate the lever almost 45 degrees to get any sort of bite. Is there an adjustment I can make to engage sooner in the rotation??

Id start with a good bleeding. Should have a firm pedal.

I have a 2016 Brutale and when I first got the bike the rear brake was almost useless. I tried to adjust the lever but that didn't work. I took it to the dealer for service under warranty and there was and air pocket in the line. Basically they removed the caliper pumped the brake and the air pocket worked its way to the reservoir.... problem solved. I was told this was somewhat common on the that bike.

Bikes:

2016 MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR
2015 Triumph Street Triple R

Had the same problem with my Turismo.
Short story: there was air system; had to bleed at the inlet line at the ABS modulator.

Thanks everyone, I'll take it in and have them check. I'm slave to the 6 year warranty with MV, is this covered or will they charge me?

I had the same issue with my rear brake, they did not bleed it from the ABS module though. Maybe next time I will ask if they could do that. They did do it all under warranty when I showed them how mushy it was.

I've bled my rear brake 3 times now, air in it every time.
I'll try it at the ABS module.

The rear break on by 2015 Brutale RR has always been fairly poor. Then last year it became totally useless so I bled the system and its back to being poor again.

Your 2015 800RR has ABS brakes and you need to bleed the ABS module.

When I moved on to my '18 Brutale the first thing I did was take it back as the rear brake seemed useless (having moved over from a Honda).

Turns out the rear brake just isn't very good. That said it will hold me on a hill, but requires a reasonable amount pressure to get half decent braking. I think the only thing it's really good for is trail braking!
