The brake disc should be changed as soon as it shows the first signs of wear. The disc not only wears down on the basis of kilometres/mileage. Extreme changes in temperature, caused by heavy braking followed by rapid cooling, can also case cracks and fissures. The surface of the disc also has to be smooth and level. A wide range of brake discs are available for the different Vespa models. All of the discs are measured Ø 200/97mm and have a 5-hole attachment. With the standard brake discs you can choose between RMS and PIAGGIO. The following highlights are available on the Race brake discs:
GALFER Wave: The special 'Wave' design of the GALFER disc dissipates the heat significantly better and therefore prevents the brake system over heating, optimising the deceleration. The Extreme provides even better deceleration values and superb visuals. The grooves in the brake disc also ensure a superb braking performance. This, of course means that the wear on the brake pads is a little heavier, which is why we recommend using sintered brake pads for an optimum braking effect with lower wear at the same time.
POLINI RAVE/ROAD: In cooperation with the brake manufacturers Braking, a 5-times float-mounted and lasered wave brake disc has been released. This is perfect in combination with Race brake discs. The road version has a noise dampening MALOSSI WHOOP springs: radical design, stainless steel, strong initial braking effect, high thermal conductivity due to the bigger surface, does not go out of shape due to heat, good self cleaning of disc and pad. For all types of weather and terrain!
Conclusion: The Race brake discs make the front tyres squeal !
SIP-TIP: Order new brake pads at the same time!
