    Re: Rear rotor rubbing on calliper bracket

    Tks for the update..

    So was the bracket installed NOT in the swingarm slot which would have bent it?

    Nice to know it is re-pairable.

    It was installed in slots. Was about to get a different bracket off ebay and decided to fix it with a hammer, which worked wonderfully.

    Now a bit of investments for the bike-plugs, inlet joints and throttle sync kit. Valve clearance check in about 2-3k miles also.

    Re: Rear rotor rubbing on calliper bracket

    Ironically my rear caliper pin broke off on my Multi, currently I’m without a rear brake. Parts finally arriving on Friday, shop will put in new pin and pads, I think my disc was saved. Ducati discs are very expensive.

    That's pretty odd.. The caliper pretty much holds the pads, the pin(s) just keeps them in place...

    I gather no :Slow speed races" while waiting for the repair??

    Did the dealer explain why it broke, (or find any info on-line about the failure)?
