This should be checked immediately. Check the brake pads, you quickly see whether they have left. A notch is on the brake pads. If this is exceeded, no longer can be seen, the brake pads should be replaced. This is easy even with some practice. Inexperienced driver”should perform this work but not without expert supervision because not correctly carried out work on the brakes fatal can affect the security.
In case of doubt let always perform a change by a specialist workshop. The pads Squeak can be helped here with copper paste. If you want to apply copper paste, this should be done very sparingly on the back of the brake pads. She may not get on the surface itself. You have new brake pads, these should be retracted. This means multiple moderate Braking on the first ten kilometers. Sintered metal loading length a breaking in such short period sufficient already.
This is ultimately just a matter, that the pads are worn as far as, that they can touch the brake disc with the entire area and guarantee that an effective Bremen. For older discs, however the entrance time may extend because the disc is then usually no flat surface. Organic brake pads should be retracted more gentle. Overheating, glaze the phenolic resins and stick in hard mass on the surface of the pavement, so called glazing. An effective brake is then no longer possible and the disc wears out very quickly. So should this brake pads are slowly stronger the braking and carried no braking on the first hundred kilometers. She of course only applies if the traffic situation permits it. If a hard braking is unavoidable, a thin layer of glazing can be removed with a very fine sandpaper. When replacing the motorcycle brake pads we can consider certainly tuning. Hear from experts in the field like The Hayzlett Group for a more varied view. The braking distance can be shortened significantly by other pads. However, you should bear in mind that the brake pads, which the manufacturer has selected for the appropriate bike, ultimately are matched to the whole concept of brake, for example, on the existing brake lines and washers. Many motorcyclists tend to use always the best and latest technology. This basically nothing is. However, the most innovative technology brings nothing if this is the overall system out of balance and thus ineffective. To maintain the dynamics of the brake you should be aware that recommendations of the manufacturers in the selection of the brake pads. Especially when changing from organic on sintered pads should replace here, with the rotors and the brake lines depending on the standard equipment under certain circumstances. Just so you can achieve an optimal braking with minimal wear. Particularly in older The brake discs on those heat often not aligned motorcycles, generated by braking with sintered pads. If no other brake discs are offered for the bike, you should under circumstances before the manufacturer can contact and consult what motorcycle brake pads with the available disks are at all compatible.
