Thank you Sticky.

Quick question: Is there anything lining the contact area (like a rubber strip, etc) between the GPS adapter and where it clamps to the screen mount? If not I'm sure that could be added prior to installation to help with grip, scratching, and extra vibration damping.

Thanks. I use clear screens, so I'm trying to get a feel for whether or not this mount, which looks great so far, would have any negative impact on the looks, when viewed from the front.

Cheers.

had the rear brake upgrade done today. back brake is now much better nad actually works!

i recommend to get this one done at Ducati's expense. it is only done on request as obviously having a recall on a brake is not good marketing

Some months ago I approached my Service Manager about the rear brake issue...his response: "They All Do That...."

Did you use some special technique to prod your dealer to do this?

My original (totaled on hoarfrost) and replacement MTS1200S's have both had dodgy rear brakes. Thanks for any help.

Dr Greg

This has been around now for about a month. The master cylinder and all the pipes are replaced to re route it away from the engine apparently. I am in the UK and had to chase for a few weeks but eventually had it done.

A search on the net brought up this though.
Hope it helps

Doc,

Talk to them again. They did mine, and it's the same manager. Can't hurt.
