Hi all, Only had the bonnie for a week now & found that the rear brake is slightly binding & getting warmer than the front brake ! Noticed this when on c/stand & spin the wheel in rotation of forward bike motion ( not used rear brake on purpose to help situation ) Found position of rear brake caliper to be underslung very low which gets covered in all the road grime & dirt ! wonder if anyone else out there has had this problem ? cleaned off caliper housing ok, but will have to check & clean pads & piston freeness I'm sure , must get the copper slip out !
Normal Bonnie Behaviour ?

Do not let Copperslip near any rubber parts of your brakes,brake grease is whats needed or silicone grease,Copperslip grease will make rubber swell and go soft.
