Just dropped by 2010 Bird @ my local bike shop after all the rear brake fluid vanished & after being refilled I had a horrendous grind coming from the rear brake. As it turns out, the retaining pins that hold the caliper in place had disappeared allowing the caliper to move hard up against the disc, wiped out the pads, caliper & rotor ! 4500 miles on the bike. I haven't heard of this happening anywhere but heads up.
