You know, I think the difference of opinion about the linked brakes lies in the servo function. My servo function is not even noticeable, either in normal road braking or trailer off function. I know it is working, because I can hear it, if I apply the brakes while just sitting still.
Is there a variablility in the amount of servo assist applied? Is it programmable? Difference in servo units??
There seems to be a difference between bikes built early in the 06 build cycle and those built late in the 06 cycle. Mine was an early one. It was owned by BMWNA prior to my purchase with 1900 miles on the clock. Several problems cited on this site, seem to attest to that.
Dunno, but the servo assist on my bike is "gentle".
