For what its worth the worst rear brake on the free market belonged to my 08' Sprint St ABS, firm lever, not much travel but nothing. As far as my MTS other then the travel I can activate the ABS on the tarmac but the travel is at least 1.5 inches

Same here. I think the pedal travel is what freaks people out more than anything, and they think that the brake isn't working if it travels more than a few mm without locking up.

Meh.....like Oalvarez says, it is what it is.

Definitely not a travel issue but just getting off the phone with the dealership and the service guy is going to call a Ducati rep which is good news. On the other hand if they know there is an issue why are they not fixing it instead of making us beg, plea and fight?

Did the 2012 models come with a different rear brake then the 10's and 11's?

It's not an issue on all bikes, so the SB only gets done to those who have the problem. That's why it's a SB and not a recall or mandatory "do this on every bike when it comes in for service" like they do with ECU updates.

And no, the brakes are the same on all model years.

To be honest I can't remember being able to brag about any rear brake on my many motorcycles over the years. I guess thats why there is a little disc on the rear and two massive discs on the front, just saying

I have two bike, and I have also had the MTS fix done. There is no way I'd call the MTS rear brake good!! I also notice I have the" black" brake fluid back in the rear master cyclinder. Yes the rear brake does work but the degrees of working are vastly different between my BMW and my MTS.

What do you guys pay for insurance on your Multi? I'm getting some crazy quotes on 2010 Multi, and I have perfect record. I'm particularly interested California prices.

I've seen numbers all over the place depending on deductible amounts, coverage limits, age, etc. Lowest I've heard is around $200/yr. Seems $400/yr is about avg. Over $600/yr with a good record and you're getting bent over.....

Geico, I pay 400.00 a year with 2 points, it probably helps that I'm 60.

IF I can find affordable insurance I think I may pull the trigger on 1200. So far I got two quotes: $2700 from Markel and $3100 from McGraw. And these two are usually the most affordable from my experience. Time to do some calling around. Thanks guys.
