Well,, last week a day after going back in to the motorcycle shop for both the squealing and to have the battery and switch parts I paid for installed, while i was riding on the freeway I applied the brakes as traffic suddenly slowed, but discovered suddenly i had zero rear brakes!!!

The rear brake lever just sank all the way down a bottomless pit with zero resistance! I managed to pull over to the shoulder of road, got off motorcycle and saw that one brake pad and its components had totally fallen out and the other rear brake pad was dangling precariously down almost totally out of caliper. Well, that was one unsuccessful rear brake installation to say the least!

I called the shop and they said they will repair it correctly this time, no extra charge to me. Still waiting on them to say they have all the parts and come in to get the work done correctly this time.
