Long rear brake pedal. Updated-how to bleed your rear brake on a Monster 1100 EVO
My 2012 M1100 EVO has had a bit of a long brake pedal. The bike has 10300+ miles on it and I am the original owner. The fluid was black so I changed that out today but it still seems somewhat ineffective.
The rear pads have about 1/8" of material left on them so I'm thinking I'll replace them soon but I'm not sure this will solve the problem.
I use the rear brake quite a bit to help settle the bike and stopping in general but I really notice it when stopped at a light on an incline. I like to keep one foot on the rear brake so I can relax my upper body a bit and this long pedal makes it difficult to do that.
Edit-Pedal travel is almost 2 inches and it only firms up right at the end of that travel.
