FAQs About Motorcycle Calipers

1. Is it better to use an integrated front fork or CNC motorcycle calipers for modified spokes?

Many people have used CNC modified parts. In fact, CNC is not a brand name. It belongs to a processing method, which is to control production through computers, so that the high-precision production process level of products can be achieved, but CNC does not mean forging and casting. It will also be CNC processed. In the same way, CNC cannot be used as a benchmark for comparing motorcycle calipers.

2. Which is better, casting or forging motorcycle calipers?

Forged calipers will be much better, because of the same material, forging has stronger rigidity than casting, and under the same rigidity, forging is lighter than casting.

3. Do I need to change the master cylinder to change motorcycle calipers?

Need to change, this question deals with hydraulic magnification. In the brake system, the work of hydraulic oil follows the principle of Pascal's hydrostatics. There is a magnification between the master cylinder and the sub-cylinder (caliper piston). Too small a magnification will cause the braking performance to be lower than that of the original factory, and an excessively large magnification will bring overload pressure to the braking system. It is not enough to simply increase the motorcycle caliper pistons or increase the master cylinder, a better match between the two is required.

4. How to calculate the magnification of motorcycle calipers?

The magnification is equal to the total area of the piston on one side of the caliper/the area of the total pump piston. However, it should be noted that the area of the caliper end is the area of the single-sided piston. So the magnification of the opposing four-piston and one-way two-piston calipers is the same. Since Single 2 and Dual 4 have the same magnification, why does it feel that Dual 4 is better than Single 2? Because the four-braking efficiency is better and the energy consumption is less.

High-end one-piece calipers, this kind of motorcycle calipers have better performance, higher strength of the calipers, and can better avoid the distortion of the calipers themselves. The relative one-piece molding is not only difficult to process, but this kind of calipers are all high-end calipers. Caliper piston material: The pistons in the caliper are often made of titanium alloy, aluminum alloy, iron and other materials. It is used as an intermediary for brake fluid to push the brake pads. When the caliper is working, the brake pads will generate high temperature due to friction. In the face of high temperature, we need materials with good heat dissipation. Different materials directly affect the performance of the piston. The piston made of titanium alloy is the best top grade.

We Jumpo have a variety of calipers for you to choose from. Our calipers are designed in 4 types: 3 positions, 2 pistons, 1 piston and opposing pistons. In addition, we can design according to customers' special requirements. Welcome to consult online!
