OK my rear rotor is driving me nuts ! It makes contact at slow speed and I can't stand the noise, I checked it after a long ride and it was hardly warm and the brakes work fine, I know the brakesare supposed to bein constant contact but I don't remember my other 1200's making that noise. I'm glad the brakes are not hanging up and everything works like it should but can I get rid of that noise ?

A missing or broken pad spring could be the cause.

Even if the pads are dragging it shouldn't make a lot of noise unless your pads are worn down to the backing plates. I would center stand the bike and verify were the noise is coming from. Check to see that there isn't any slop in the bearings or side play in the wheel. It could be that warn bearings are causing the final drive to rub on the wheel. Also make sure your the nut on the axle hasn't loosened up.

If the pads are dragging try cleaning and greasing the sliders.
