I seem to think that my rear brakes are much less effective (fades) once the bike has been ridden hard for an extended period on an open road (without much use of brakes) and heard from a fellow MV owner that maybe the engine/exhaust heat is warming the rear brake fluid reservoir and thus thinning the brake fluid or something to that effect. Have any of you moved the rear brake fluid reservoir to another position as result of this? Replies most welcome.

I think the Rear Brake sucks anyway and is, caused by the weight distribution under hard braking, pretty much useless. But here talks a 750S guy which doesn't believe that the 1000S rear brake is significantly different.

You may be right, but I'm sure the brakes are worse once the engine/exhaust is really hot. I can feel too that the rear brake pedal goes down further before I get any braking action, making me wonder if the brake fluid has not thinned (less viscous) from being heated up.
