What You Should Know About Motorcycle Brake Pads


What Do They Do?

When the rider presses on the brake lever or pedal of a disc brakeequipped motorcycle, the brake master cylinder attached to the lever or pedal pressurizes the system and sends hydraulic pressure to the brake caliper(s) at the wheels. The calipers have one or more pistons which are forced outward against the metal backing of the brake pads. As the brake pads clamp against the spinning rotor, they create friction which converts the kinetic energy built up in the motorcycle from speed, into heat energy. This heat passes into the brake rotors, pads and calipers, and finally into the air.

What Are They?

Brake pads are the friction surfaces which contact the brake discs (commonly called brake rotors as well) in disc brake systems. They are made of various friction materials bonded (they used to also be riveted) to a steel backing plate.
