Tips for proper maintenance of disk brake

Post by liammafan14 on Sun Aug 15, 2010 3:26 am

Some simple tips for proper maintenance of disk brake.

1. Be careful when replacing brake pads (brake fluid is corrosive and motorcycle brake dust is toxic). Ang brake fluid nkkabura ng pintura. Also once you have replaced the brake pads carefully test them. Make sure you get the feel back.

2. Ang Brake maintenance ay dapat regular part na ng service schedule - check shoe pad wear - check hose connections - bleed hydraulic brakes system - change hydraulic brake fluid.

3. Good tip is to service your brakes every time the wheel comes off. Halimbawa flat tire. It's the easiest way to access the brakes and it avoids having to remove wheels for brake maintenance only.

4. Make sure you use the right brake fluid: it can be a (dot 3 or 4) glycol based or a silicone based (dot 5). Using the wrong fluid will screw up your system.

5. Your disk brake system can be fitted with single acting calipers (one piston pushes the brake pad from one side) or double acting calipers (two pistons push two brake pads from either side). Of course double calipers have more braking power.

6. Most modern calipers have multi pistons pushing the brake pad on the disc, creating an awesome braking force.

7. Brake discs are slotted and/or drilled so that cooling air can run through and past the hot discs for a better cooling effect.

8. If you replace brake lines, pistons or you feel your brake system is going soft you will need to bleed your brakes. Check nyo ung owners manual ng bike nyo.

9. One of the easiest maintenance jobs is to replace your brake pads however you must make sure you have checked and rechecked that you have done everything exactly right. Most probably ang mga motor meron ibat ibang type ng brake pads. Brake failure isn't what you need on a motorcycle.
