Well, I'm reading this post, but..., My rear brake doesn't even hold me in plase on a hill... And that's troubling... Just looked of I had air in the brakeline, but that was good...
I Think I'll try installing new pads... but what is the minimal thikness for a rear brake rotor??? The Front tels me 4.5mm ... on the rear I fond nothing.
The rear disc minumum is also 4.5mm according to the manual...

The rear brakes on these bikes, (same on my old VTR), is there for looks.....(yup says the inspector, they fitted brakes to the bike....tick)...not much else.......
It will stabilise the bike into a bend, and has the uncanny knack of being able to wear the pads out, even though there seems to be no real relationship between the pad and disc
in terms of friction...... :LOL:

I have toyed with the idea of putting a kit through the rear master cylinder to see if that helps....but i fear it wont help
