Another brake related question. I know from reading other posts that the rear brake is soft. But I'm wondering if the ABS is working correctly on the rear.

I thought ABS prevented locking up. When I brake gradually from soft up to hard, I feel nothing on the rear brake until ABS kicks in. And when it does, it allows the rear wheel to lock up momentarily once or twice.

I was thinking ABS would pulse quicker and not allow any locking up. I'm very grateful it doesn't completely lock up, don't get me wrong. I was under the impression (false perhaps) that there would be no lock up with ABS... even these brief initial bites.

Is the ABS functioning properly?

Thanks in advance,

The salesman told me the front brake lever also activated the rear brakes. Is this correct?

No. The front and rear are completely independent.

My rear brake isn't soft. It isn't very strong (but strong enough), but it is smooth and firm. The rear braking is progressive directly related to the pedal pressure.
