Boiling the brakes is pretty common on Dirt bikes. The fix is a solid rear rotor, not sure if anyone makes one for the 990, Motul RBF 600 fluid, and the most important one, adjust the brake lever. The solid rear rotor helps disipate heat better, the fluid boils at a higher temp, and you need to stop riding the rear brake. You would be surprised at how much difference a little adjustment makes. You may not realize it but you can just be putting a little pressure on the pedal causing excess heat.
