Motorcycle Brakes!

Something we see way to often when doing inspections on Motorcycles is brake disc rotors under their manufacture minimum thickness.

Now every brake disc rotor be it car, motorcycle, truck or trailer all have minimum thickness measurements to adhere to. The reason for this is so that your brake system works at its optimum to help you be safe. The risks you run when you disregard this is you can be applying your brakes and a brake caliper piston ( the bit that push’s the brake pads to the disc rotor ) can dislodge causing catastrophic brake failure and serious accidents. That alone is enough to be concerned when it comes to your brakes. Especially on motorcycles where you don’t have the protection of a car around you.

So please people keep your maintenance up on your vehicles so you can get home to your family, friends and loved ones!
