    Tech doesn't check the rear brake and most don't even use it.

    The tech comment is untrue, for both racing AND track days. Even though most don't use it, it's good to know it's there just in case.

    Mike,

    PM me... Fuck it... call me at 508-987-1713
    I'm in Oxford, and have an '01 that isn't currently racing. I could loan you the brake caliper assy, but I'll need it back.

    Tech SHOULD check... and most don't use it, until they lose their front brakes.

    I agree that its good to have, but in a pinch I wouldn't sweat it unless it was part of my riding style. And I've never had a track day tech inspecter ever even look at my rear brake let alone test it.

    That's a little alarming.

    I find that hard to believe.

    1) As a TTD staff member this is part of the tech check process, to check both the pads and the lever operation.

    2) I have attended Boston Moto days where they do the same.

    I thought if the front brakes fall off, people just bail off the bike and let it run into another rider?

    I'm sure you do, but I did a BM day last year and my rear brake wasn't checked. Tony's didn't check this year and neither did Fishy's. Didn't check any of my other buddies either. Maybe because our bikes are either newer or well maintained? I dunno. Not looking to cross any sentiments here, just telling ya how I've seen it. YMMV as they say on tha interwebs.

    Re: Urgent! Sv650 rear brake caliper assembly needed asap!

    Just to add a little...

    All my bikes have always had their rear brakes checked at tech.

    I know a lot of people dont use the rear but there are times its very handy. I can think of a handful of times on the R6 I was very happy to have a working rear brake. I tend to be a shitty starter and one time (at band camp) I was starting on the inside or the second row. Had about 5 or 6 guys coming down on me into 1. Rear was very very useful.

    On the motard it just feels like second nature to use it. Maybe its because its a dirt bike and I use a lot of rear brake while riding dirt.

    Even if you dont use it on a regular basis, anything can happen out there. Its a nice thing to have when you need it.

    We keep tech moving at a pretty good clip. I don't labor over something unless it's in need of attention. If your brake is in good order you might not even notice me hit the lever as I walk around the bike, but it gets checked. It's a routine for those that have done tech a bunch. I run through the same routine every time so I know I don't forget anything.

    Anyway... all of that aside, just to make it very clear for those at home... The statement that tech doesn't check the rear brake is 100% false. We ALL check your back brake... and you WILL fail tech if your back brake isn't functional.

    My rear came in useful when my front caliper fell off.
