We have designed a rear drag brake kit that uses the factory rear caliper, thus keeping the use of the Emergency Brake. We manufacture a custom 2 piece rotor, special brake pads, and billet caliper brackets to make it all work. There is one spot on the spindle that has to be slightly clearenced, but can be done with a sandpaper drum on a drill.
For clarity, this kit includes, 2) 2 piece rotors, brake pads and 2) loaded caliper brackets.
Please anticipate a minimum of 6-8 weeks for your kit to ship. Orders will not be refunded if order has been started.
“How hard is it to change the brake pads on my bike?”
A question I hear all too often in the industry. What I’d like to say is “Well.. hard enough to possibly kill you.” This isn’t a topic I want to take lightly. Want to do a guess job on your car? Be my guest. At least you have a metal box around you in case something rears its head after your repair. When you’re on two wheels, your motorcycles brake service needs to be PERFECT. Lets get into some steps and tips to make sure that your brake repair is done professionally with confidence. Before you begin busting your knuckles, be sure to check your tool supply to get the job done. People tend to “make do” with what they have to save time and energy instead of stopping in at your tool store to get what you really need. By reading through this post as well as watching the video version, you will not only learn the steps to efficiently performing your brake job but also gain some very important fundamental knowledge on some possible problems and information on the importance of each step.
If your eager to get going, feel free to scroll straight to the steps I’ve provided below!
Maintaining your bike is your responsibility, both for your safety and that of the friends you ride with. Luckily, tuning up your bike isn’t as hard as it might seem when you first try.
Here’s how to maintain some of the components on your bike. Contact your local bike shop for books and advice on where to turn for more advanced maintenance tasks.
CLEANING YOUR BIKE
Why: Oil and dirt stick to components such as brake and gear systems, making them less effective.

The RD reeds are a real classic for powerful scooter engines. They give a very good and high power output as well as a phenomenal reliability.
Because we were so happy with the RD reeds, we do now offer the bgm reed valve with glass fibre petals. Glass fibre is well known for their superior behaviour as a basic material for reed petals.
The reed block is vulcanised with a soft rubber compound. This adds to the sealing of the plates. Additionally the plates do not wear as fast because of the better absorption. The sound of the plates closing is absorbed much better as well.
The RD style reeds are used from the SRC manifold, the huge Vespa reed manifolds to the Lambretta TS1 cylinder kits.

The new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) from Honda, the Honda Clarity, is a chameleon of sorts, in that it adapts to your driving conditions. The main source of power of the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is the battery, which can go for 47 all-electric miles.
There is also an all-electric model and a hydrogen fuel cell variant of the Clarity that came before the plug-in hybrid. The advantage of the Honda PHEV is that it offers both an electric engine and conventional engine, along with the 17-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The main electric motor is powered by the battery, and drives the front wheels. In most cases, the car is powered by the battery.
