Greetings to all my first time on the main forum.
You can also break the wire on the rear brake pads if your silly enough to leave a disc lock on the disc and try and roll the bike backwards until it touches the brakepad assembly, only a very slight touch maybe a quarter wheel turn at a real slow pace was enough to brake the wire, plenty of meat still left on the pads but new pads had to be installed unless you wanted to live with looking at the brake pad wear indicator light staring at you every time you went riding.
Lucky for me my dealer put it down as a faulty pad and replaced it as a warranty item with my 30k service.The cruise control also disconnected once the warning brake pad light lit up on the display panel, l think the two are linked but not certain.
