When the brake lever is squeezed, the piston in the master cylinder builds up pressure in the brake fluid, which is then transferred to the pistons in the brake calipers. The pistons press the brake pads against the rotating brake discs. The friction between the pads and the discs causes the wheel to slow down, wearing down both the pads and the brake discs.

It is important to replace the brake pads on time. Because the service intervals are getting longer nowadays, you must also regularly check yourself whether the friction material (or brake lining) is still thick enough. With new brake pads, this is about 6 - 8 mm. When it becomes less than 1 to 2 mm, the pads must be replaced. If you drive too long, the steel brake discs can be damaged and that means an expensive repair.

When replacing the brake pads, you have a choice of two types: organic and sintered. Organic brake pads are generally slightly cheaper, and if you have a normal driving style then these pads will suffice just fine. Sintered brake pads are also suitable for normal use, but come into their own when you have a very sporty driving style.

Not every brake disc (cast iron) or caliper is suitable for fitting sintered brake pads. If in doubt, consult your instruction booklet or our technical department. Goedhart supplies the right brake pads for most motorcycles. Select the correct engine type and you will automatically find the appropriate brake pads for your motorcycle. Brake pads are always bought in pairs. You will need one pair of brake pads per disc. In the case of a double disc brake, you will need to order two sets. In the case of front wheels with two calipers, always replace both sets of brake pads.
