Is It Really Necessary to Modify the Brake Calipers for Motorcycles?

Everyone knows that being able to brake is more important than running fast. Therefore, while improving the power performance, the braking performance of the vehicle must not be neglected. However, the bigger the calipers, the better. It will definitely achieve the best effect. Now many riders will modify the radiation calipers, but is it really necessary? Jumpo will answer for you today and correct your wrong ideas!

1. Changing motorcycle calipers = safety?

Uncertain. Increasing the level of motorcycle calipers will indeed increase the braking force, but increasing the level of calipers also requires more careful operation, or adjusting other braking equipment (such as: master cylinder), if the above details are neglected, it may cause danger.

2. What is the radiation motorcycle caliper?

Radial calipers: The difference from traditional calipers is that the screws at both ends of radial calipers are locked radially. Different from the traditional method of side locking, radial locking can reduce lateral shear force problem. Radial calipers can have problems reducing lateral shear. In addition, when the caliper is in operation, there will be some self-distortion. Excessive self-distortion will cause radial tapered wear on the brake pads. This shortcoming can be effectively improved through the radial locking method of the radial caliper. The self-distorted state improves more complete braking efficiency, which is why many riders say that the radiation motorcycle calipers are more stable when braking.

3. CNC = forging? Are CNC motorcycle calipers more powerful?

Wrong. CNC is a manufacturing method that controls production through computers, but CNC does not mean forging, casting will also be processed by CNC. Similarly, CNC cannot be used as a benchmark for caliper comparison. If you want to compare the pros and cons of calipers, you still have to judge through their construction methods.

4. What are the materials of motorcycle caliper pistons? What will affect?

Material: titanium alloy, aluminum alloy, iron; influencing factors: heat dissipation, oxidation. The piston is the medium through which the brake fluid pushes the brake pad. When the caliper is subjected to intense manipulation, the brake pad will generate high temperature due to friction. The braking performance is lost, so materials with faster heat dissipation can provide more stable braking performance. In addition, NCYHP specially designed cooling holes on the piston to solve the cooling problem. The material will also affect whether the piston is easy to rust. A rusted piston will not move smoothly. The common materials are titanium alloy, aluminum alloy, and iron from high to low.

5. Why is it necessary to change the master cylinder when changing motorcycle calipers?

Consider hydraulic magnification. Since the entire braking system operates through Pascal's principle, there will be a factor of magnification between the master cylinder and the sub-cylinder (caliper piston). If the magnification is too small, the braking performance will be lower than that of the original factory. For a large magnification, it is necessary to consider whether the rigidity of the braking system is sufficient. In short, it is not better to simply increase the number of motorcycle caliper pistons or increase the master cylinder, the magnification between the two must also be calculated.
