Brembo Rotor Kit w/ Sintered Pads '77-'84

 

"Then I added the Brembo brake upgrade from 650 Central. This has been the Most Dramatic change I have experienced on the XS! The Brakes are AWESOME! Two fingers are all you need for major stopping power! Lots of travel on the lever, for lots of feel on the brakes."  Mike Davis

 

With stock rotor --"OK - after over 100k miles on XSs, I finally have one with a real front brake.  I purchased a Brembo 11mm front master and a set of Vesrah sintered front pads from 650 Central.  Mike M was dead on in recommending this size master.  After a few normal stops and then a half dozen ton-down bedding stops, this thing works as well as the front on my W, almost as well as the Thruxton.  (almost) What a difference!   This takes the tires I am using to the limit easily.  It will take race rubber if I ever consider the rotor / caliper upgrade to match."  Mike Tatkow  

This premium lightweight Brembo rotor offers a superior Co-efficient Of Friction to Japanese SS rotors. Weighing only 3 lbs., 6 oz., it has a noticeable effect on handling. Combined with the modified Vesrah Sintered pads, a vast increase in stopping power is immediately noticeable, upon heat cycling. Kit includes longer caliper mounting bolts, precision-machined CNC spacers, modified kit pads, and the Brembo rotor, with classic aluminum carrier, SS buttons, 5mm thick blade with peripheral cooling groove, 11mm Brembo master cylinder, w/ brake switch and SS lines for a complete kit with modern feel.
