Any more 749/999 brake problems???

Well it looks like Brogins may have a similar problem to mine. See his "front wheel" thread:

http://217.199.188.40/xmb/viewthread.php?tid=20203

This is the first 999 to be affected, and it's a new 2005 bike. If it's the same problem, that has to be a bit of a worry. Current list is:

Twinfan - 2004 749S - registered May 2004
Spartacus - 2004 749 - registered May 2004
Necroscope - 2004 749 Dark - registered April 2004
Brogins - 2005 999 - registered March 2005

All four bikes have had brakes that seem to "stick on", and Brogins was very lucky as he was on track the day he noticed it

Is there anyone else who's had problems? How many more don't we know about???

Have you posted about this problem in other Ducati forums?
If not, i think you should do it.
That would put more pressure on Ducati and maybe then they will solve your problem faster.

It's not just my problem I want Ducati to solve - I want them to make sure no-one else gets injured, or worse.

What brake set-up is Brogins using? does he have a radial setup or standard like yours?

Good point JPM - looks like it's an '05 R or S with radials. Maybe it's a different problem?

I've watched this post with interest, I have a 04 749 reg in may last year, it has suffered from viberation since new when braking but only the last 20mph and only in the dry. The dealer i brought the bike from (Itaila Moto in Lincoln)has been great and after looking at the bike it will be getting new Discs.The old ones are warped.
BTW my bike has done 5000+ miles and the brakes have never stuck on but never been quite right.
