Brake Pads, Rotors and Brake Lines for Motorcycles.
Brake pads and rotors are vital motorcycle parts. these parts need to be maintained at all times in order to insure proper braking power. Motorcycle acceleration is generally way faster then that of cars so it is essential to also have the braking power to stop when needed.
We carry brake pads, rotors and brake lines by the following manufacturers: Braking power under control, DP Brakes, EBC brakes, sbs, Parts Unlimited, Vesrah, Russel Brake Lines, Goodridge, Magnum.
Brake pads need to be changed periodically depending on the pads and your riding style. The higher performance brake pads the faster they generally wear out. This is a trade off because you get better braking out of them but they wear out faster. Also pads are much cheaper then replacing rotors so you don't wont to wear them down to the point wear your rotors get ruts in them and don't work properly. A screwed up front rotor can be a real hazard to the rider.
Rotors also play a vital role in braking. Vented ones are usually best to dissipate the heat that is given off by repeated braking. I personally like cast iron rotors. They need a little more care but to me they grab better then other rotors.
Brake lines are the other component that needs periodic maintenance. The lines over time expand or become brittle which causes you to lose pressure in the line and therefore stopping power is affected. Steel braided brake lines are a good choice because they are not prone to this where regular rubber lines are. Kevlar lines are also a great alternative to stock ones.
We carry a full assortment of lines, pads and rotors if you do not see them on the site please contact us as to the availability.
