Memory gap: Front Brake Disc

Postby stefan » Sun Aug 31, 2014 8:47 am

Hi there,

a long time ago I saw a picture here from the front brake disc with an explanation from what manufacturer it is. As far as I remember it was also build for a car.
Does anybody remember?
Thing is, that YAMAHA have no parts left and the TUEV (Germany) won't like any "selfmade" solutions (and so do I!).

Thank you very much
stefan

Hi MotorMuis77 & stefan,

I am afraid it was never used on a car as such. There is a possibility, the rotor or disc was, but the centre was unique to Yamaha as far as I know.

There was accompany ion the UK, that could fit one to it, and I know that Steve Linsdall made a special using a brake company for his IoM TT racer. The first one was stock, the second a thinner version of the original, and the last one a special order.

Hope this helps.
Mike
I've just started riding the GTS again, and it'll be changing

MotorMuis - If you still have some wear left, why not prolong the life of your original disk by using organic (kevlar) brake pads. They cause much reduced wear on the disk (almost zero) compared to sintered pads.
