The rear brake works well on my 2012 WR450F.   However, I would like it to have more feel, especially on slippery downhills.   To me it seems like its either on or off.   I rode a 2015 TE300 and loved the feel of its rear brake compared to my WR.


I've done Krannie's trick of introducing air into the brake circuit.  That helps, but I don't think its as nice as the TE rear brake.


Is there anything else one can do to make the rear brake more progressive ?

Change the pads

You want softer pads

I use EBC Carbon X and it's like the brakes can read my mind..,.,....
