Hello, I have a g310r with 350km and it is happening to me when I use the rear brake, I feel that my foot touches the street, it seems to me that the rear brake is very low.

Anyone have that problem with the rear brake?

Yep.. fully agree.. after a few hundred miles/Kms you'll get used to it!!
Or buy one of the pedal plates ..

Nothing to worry about just the ABS kicking in.

The 'problem',, is that the BMW cost engineers removed the option for any brake pedal adjustment. (something that you will find on nearly all bikes).
I have looked at fileing the brake pedal 'stop' to allow it to raise a little.

Brake Pad Replacement Info

I don't have a problem as such but do need to replace my rear pads. I am new to this Forum and although I have had a quick look I can not seem to find any section to advise on how to do it - a video would be brilliant. Does anyone have a link or information I can have? Many thanks.

I felt the same at first, but you get used to it. It's just the ABS system kicking back.

IMHO It is too sensitive and it triggers with too little grip loss.

changing brake pads is quite simple and if you find ANY video for this job it is okay.
Most brakes are the same and changing brake pads from (almost) any motorcycle happens in the same way.

One advice …………….. don't touch the brakes when the pads are removed.
You will end up with al lot of work (or in most cases, your dealer ;-))

Succes / good luck !

PS were are you from ?
let us know for the thread 'were re you from'

The low brake pedal has nothing to do with ABS and everything to do with the lack of adjustability. I'm going to try a pad on top of the pedal if spring ever gets here,

I also own a 1200 GS and complained to BMW I think that is poor on a bike like this, almost every other bike that I have owned I have been able to adjust the break lever to suit my feeling or position that was comfortable.
