    rearbreak RSV MILLE R 2000

    My rear break dont work on the RSV MILE R.
    I read in this forum that this is a common problem.
    Also i saw that it can be replaced with the break of the ducati 1098 to solve this problem.
    Is that correct an is the rear break than oke?
    If that is so i wil replace it.
    Enyone experiance with that?

    I don't know about the Ducati brake.

    I do know that to bleed the standard brake properly, you need to unbolt the caliper and mount it above the master-cylinder.

    I put a spare disc in the jaws of a Black & Decker Workmate bench standing on its end, and put the caliper on that, then bled the brake, then refitted the caliper.

    Ducati one in general is no different and certainly the issues on Aprilia Ducati and KTM is down to the bleed nipple on the bottom of the caliper and not the top.
    As already mentioned remove the caliper and wedge a spanner between the pistons. Invert it so bleed nipple is upper most and bleed in the traditional manner.

    And join Rsvr.net is best bet as you get a lot more activity there
