GMack, I know my 07 doesn't have a drain plug, so no magnetic drain plug on this guys bike, more than likely.
Thing to remeber is thatthe front and rear brakes are coupled, so even though you think the rear brakes were hardly used during the previous trip (when the FD and brakes felt warm/hot), the rear brakes were being applied every time you stopped. You can use JUST the rear brakes by using the rear bake lever, like in slippery conditions, but you can NOT use the front brakes alone, the rear brakes apply with the front.
