Test rode a 500 the other day at Daytona. The back brake seemed very weak even with firm pressure. A guy who rode the 750 reported the same thing.

Has anyone else noticed the same?

Own an XG750

The horn is the hideous part hung on the thing

Heard a lot of comments on brakes. I can lock them up front or rear.

They do require more hand and foot pressure than a 4 puck set up.

I switched to EBC sintered pads. Which relieved some of the pressure requirements.

And locking up the rear brake is seldom, if ever, a good thing to do.

I wonder if either of my bikes have a back brake...

You mean downshifting?
