Hey,

Has anyone ever tried to make their rear brake less sensitive on a WR 426? Mine seems to be like a light switch either it's off or locked up. Everything is stock and the pads are still good so I'm at a loss as to what I could do to change it.

Thanks
Dean

Ditto! I do the same thing on my WR and R1. Mushy up the brakes but still allow it to lock up at full stroke. :naughty:

Might seem to be an unrelated question, but what boots do you wear on your WR?

OK. The reason I ask, is that with my Fox Forma Pro's, I have the same situation. No feeling through the soles means my rear brake is either not on, or locked up. :naughty: I've tried other boots, so I know it's them, not a problem with the bike. Initially, I changed to SBS brake pads, still the same.....
