Re: That's hot
Well I finally had the rear rotor and pads replaced under warranty, but the cause of the overheating was inconclusive. They bled the brakes and I have a suspicion it has something to do with air in the linked cicrcuit. It must be a closed circuit I would think, else you would be pushing fluid out the rear reservoir when using only the front brake. Of course there were no faults thrown in the computer.
Just thought I'd update you guys, but I hate not finding something definite. I'll be going on a ride up the Sierras this coming weekend, so that should be a good test. Nothing as high as we were in Utah when it happened - getting too cool out here in CA for the mountains.
BTW, the dealer gave me a R1200GS to go play on while I was waiting. Very impressive and quick handling, but I still prefer the GT.
