    Like others, i too found the rear break to be too difficult to apply and used the rear adjustment to lengthen the push rod. (I had to rotate my foot way too much to get pressure) After making the adjustment -- moving the rod almost all the way out, I went for a test ride and it was much better...

    I have 6000 mi on my 2015 Ducati Diavel which I bought new 2-years ago. Since day-1, the brakes have squealed at low speeds. So embarrassing for a premium luxury machine. Dealer tried filling down the brake pad edges without success (under warranty). Anyone have a real fix?

    Just throwing this out there: I have conditioned myself at this point to do a quick pre-stab on the brakes before full application as it makes a huge difference in the firmness and feel, both front and back. The second pull results in a nice firm, even pressure that is much improved over the...

    Saturday turned out not quite how I planned... normal chores for a Saturday morning out the way, good weather and an open road. So out she came having been in the garage since the first service. But after only a few miles the bike started to slow down quite fast when I backed off??? Thought no...
