[How is it used? Used on FTR223. Applications:Street riding, Touring, Circuit, FlatDirt
Was the one you received as per Image? Just like the image. The base metal, gold, is also chic and nice. The surface of the Brake Disc also had a semi-metallic feel to it, which seemed to work well.
Was the installation difficult? The installation is not that difficult, and if you have enough time, it is very durable. However, if the piston is sticking or is reluctant to move, it will take a bit of work. When removing the pad pin or caliper mounting bolt, it is recommended that you use a good precision tool from a proper tool manufacturer if possible. When you remove the Pad, you can push the entire Pad when you push the Piston back. (Skinning) This can be done easily by using
How was your experience with it? Compared to the OEM, I think it worked better and had better control, and I was able to slow down enough on the circuit with my own kill at the time, and I didn't make the mistake of overrunning. I was able to drive safely in the city and on a tour because it worked well and gave me plenty of room. Life was longer and there was less aggression to the brake disc rotor. Compared to DAYTONA's Red Pad, I felt it was slightly less effective and less controllable.
[Included Parts:were they on? None
[Was there anything that disappointed you? As my own Skill rose, there were times when I wished it would work a little more.
(Points and hangs for installation/things you should prepare together) As the installation point or hang, the To reduce the squeal, chamfer the short side of the pad with an ironworking file. Apply a thin layer of brake pad grease to the surfaces of the caliper and piston. (Base material) If you apply it on the whole side, Dust will not adhere well. If the surface of the pad pin is covered with rust or dirt, I use about #400 water-resistance paper and inexpensive lubricant such as Kure 556, etc., and clean it with oil. Then apply a thin layer of pad grease and install. Use a mild detergent and tooth brush to clean the caliper. Use a mild detergent and toothbrush to clean calipers. ・Parts cleaners that are less aggressive to rubbers should be used only where there is a lot of dirt. (Chain cleaner) Cleaned at Spray the entire caliper with silicon spray and wipe it with a dustcloth. (Before installing the pad)
