Front brake

I've had problems with my front brake. It required a couple of pumps to get a good feel.

So whilst the Hyper was in for the 1st service I asked them to take a look.

They bleed the brakes but in the end have ordered me a new master cylinder.

I hope that fixes it. I have found that the real weak point on these bikes IS the brakes. Mine have been bled multiple times and while they work, they are just not as good ans my other Ducati's

I hope it does, the SP runs a brembo master cylinder and from what I read its a massive improvement.

dont really see why Ducati would have speced those brembo calipers then paired them with a weak master cylinder, considering it's the premium bike in its class..

I disagree. Aside from being a touch too grabby and the problems with the sticking bobbins making noise, when I want to stop immediately under control, the brake/ABS system are amazing. I consistently stopped the shortest in my advanced riders course.

i also disagree - the HS has excellent brakes which also work best on road and also perfect on track.

maybe the one or other has problems with brakes, same with electronic and other things. mine has a bad ABS pump at time and it is not sure that Ducati will cover it.
But anyway, i still have the position that HS brakes are top.

Good to hear.... Mine pretty poor but that's obviously coz there's a fault.

I will be happy to report back once it's fixed...

Even after 6500 kms my front brake is still quite "grabby".
I had expected over time for it to maybe bed in a bit more.

Is this the general case with the Hyper in that this is just the way it is ?
I have done a fair few hard stops now in trying to take that edge off it, but it seems to remain the same.

Appreciate any feedback that can be offered
Cheers

Mine was always very grabby with the stock pads. After 5k miles though, it was starting to have the "warped" front rotor problem that many of us have had. So after I had the dealer warranty the rotors (They wouldn't warranty the pads with them - go figure), I threw in my own Galfer HH pads. After riding with those, I am very impressed at how much smoother they are, as well as the improved stopping power when you really grab a handful.

Pads are a "wear item" and are never going to be covered under warranty. With a service contract, maybe.

My brakes are stock and work just fine.

Between a race prepped SV650, and RC51 and the Hyper, the Hyper wins the brake wars hands down. Those Brembos are just awesome. You may want to try a pad change or just recalibrate your brain to them (as every machine needs you to do). They are hardcore no doubt!!!!
