I Ride: 2013 Ducati 1199 Panigale s abs
2013 Duc 1199 s abs rear brake seizing

I have searched everywhere for some more insight on my issue.

what I have. 2013 Ducati 1199 s abs with about 6k miles on it.

Just had it shipped over to Hawaii and when I uncrated it and drove it home I had no issues with the rear brake, not releasing after being pressed. Also, I rode it a few more times before the issues started.

So, now every time I ride it the rear brake starts to seize up to the point where I feel it slow me down.

I did bleed the lines and put new brake fluid in it but still have issues. It does have aftermarket brake lever on it. But I have had this bike for an about a yr now and never had any issue with it. I use the front brake most of the time. I use the rear very rarely bc it doesn't really do anything for the most. When I did the bleeding of the lines, I did take off the caliper and held it above the tire.

Pads look fine, no leaks, clean fluid now

So, I guess I'm just looking for anyone that has had this issue and found the fix. Most of the post are about 6+ yrs old. So, looking for some more recent.

sounds like you should refit the Original brake lever and see if that makes any difference,
other than that, have you stripped an cleaned the brake linkage?

I have not tried to clean anything as everything looks pretty clean. I did notice that my position screw was fully extended. Not sure if that would have caused any issues.

But yeah, I was thinking of putting my old set back on.

How much rear pedal free movement do you have now? It sounds just like a bike with the rear pedal with no play. When it gets hotter it has no play to allow for fluid expansion an then is essentially acting like you are pressing it.

Also, what ABS setting are you using? I only ride the front brake unless doing wheelies or stopped on a hill or at a light. I use ABS 1. The other settings add rear brake pressure to prevent rear wheel lift and improve braking as part of the ABS logic.

I adjusted the adjustment screw to allow a lot of play till I figure out the issue. I want to do a little more testing to see if the applied pressure is what's causing the issue. But I do agree that is sounds like excalty what you're explaining

With lots of play in the pedal and abs off I had no issues after 30miles of riding.

I normally run abs 1 or 2. But now I'll only run 1 since you mentioned that @airjawed. I don't do much wheelies so I should be just fine with abs 1

Adjust to at least 2mm of free play.

If the “position screw” you are referring is the one that protrudes from the rear lever and makes contact with the rearset actuating the rear brake light switch, then yes when adjusted to full length it may eat into all of your free play and prevent the wheel from spinning.

Wind it in all the way, then back it out slowly. Operate the leverby hand and you will feel when the plunger pin starts to grab. If you can’t reach 2mm of free play, then shorten the plunger pin by loosening the jam nut and screwing in the pin.

Yes, that is the position screw I'm talking about.

I'm busy for the rest of the day, but I'll work on it and then report back once I have set it to the correct position and tested it out.

Thanks a lot for the information!

@stealthblack

So, the issue was the "position screw". I have adjusted and used some loctite to keep it from moving again.

Thanks for the input.
