So I've got about 220 total miles on the 696 now  Grin and the rear brake makes a horrible noise  Sad.  The noise does not occur when lightly applied or when applied at speed.  But comming to a stop the rear brake is loud.  Is this normal for the brakes or should I call the dealer?

Normal, my wifes 696 rear brake is loud and it has 600+ miles on it. Motorcycle brakes work best when they are hot and since most of your stopping power comes from the front the rear never gets really hot so when you are using the rear it is normaly a cold rotor and cold shoe. If you used them all the time the noise would probbubly go away. but if it makes or feels like it is grinding call your dealer.

My 696 has over 600 mi. and I have not heard any noise from the rear brake.  If it makes you feel better you may want to call the dealer.

oh wait, that's the shiny thing that looks like a sprocket with the teeth missing ?

The only time I really use mine is if I have to throw out the anchor and stop NOW or if I'm at a stop light on a hill to I can take my hand off of the brake. Mine nake sort of a squall noise sometimes. Almost like a high pitch vibration sort of.

I wonder of some of the newer bikes could be doing it if the rear brake pads may have not been bedded in quite enough since they're not used near as hard as the front brakes.

Yes it is the toothless sprocket.  Would it be un-PC to call it the West Virgina sprocket?

This noise is getting louder at every light.  So I've called Indy Ducati and will be stopping by Tuesday after work.

If the brake pads have a little bit f a temper to them, try getting up to highway speeds and stand on the rear brake just hard enough to not lock up the rear wheel. Cycle them like that 2 or 3 times and see if it still does it.

Do what I do stand on the front brake lever stand the bike up on the front wheel and save the rear brake and tire for when you really need it.

So I took the bike to Indy Ducati last night and now the rear brake noise is gone.  Matt said they added a champher to the leading edge of the brake pad and sprayed on some goo that holds the pad in place inside of the caliper.

Then do a wheelie, that way you double your tire life, right? Roll Eyes

The rear brake on my Monster squealed like a hooker when you don't pay her.

But the Multi's rear brake is as quiet as a mute church mouse.

Mine used to do it just as you were coming to a stop. Since I did the braided stainless line it hasn't made a sound.
