Any time i use my rear brake it feels like something is lopsided, could that be a balancing issue?

like it's warped? if you have a rear stand, get the bike on it and spin the rear wheel with your hand and see if your brake rotor is warped.

Do you use it alot? If not, it might be a stuck caliper, causing alot of heat and possibly warping the rotor.

I didn't think Ducati rear brakes worked? ;)


Has it been upgraded?


Do you ride two up?

Do you drag it?

They work plenty well! So well in fact that I lock them up more often than I'd like. ;D

If you lack a rear stand, grab a ruler and line it up across the rotor in a copuple of places. Taking the pads out too isn't that hard. Also, you can try and clean the spring retaining pins.
