Comprehensive instruction manual included with every Brembo system. CALIPER MOUNTING BRACKETS & HARDWARE All caliper mounting brackets are precision milled from superior quality materials.<br><br> Each Brembo system includes all necessary hardware for installation. OPTIMUM BRAKE BALANCE Brembo uses several hundred caliper, piston and disc combinations to achieve maximum performance and optimum brake balance. Calipers are designed with differential piston bore sizes for even pad wear and OEM approved dust boots to protect the pressure seals & uid.<br><br> BREMBO HIGH PERFORMANCE BRAKE PADS Each Brembo system is delivered with preloaded calipers. Brake pads are selected vehicle speci c for high performance. GOODRIDGE STAINLESS STEEL BRAIDED BRAKE LINES Goodridge is the leading line supplier to OE manufactures and championship winning race teams worldwide.<br><br> With the tightest bend radius in the industry and the lowest rate of expansion, you can be assured that every inch of pressure from the pedal is transfered directly to where it counts - the caliper. Goodridge is the only brake hose system approved for use in every country in the world and is guaranteed for life. FLOATING ANTI-RATTLE HARDWARE Designed by Brembo to minimize noise between the oating disc & aluminum hat.<br><br> Allows rotor to expand & contract naturally under extreme temperatures to reduce distortion of the hat & rotor assembly. 13 DRILLED / SLOTTED Both drilled & slotted rotors offer improved initial bite & provide an exit path for water, debris & gases. Some manufacturers offer drilled rotors for performance and an aggressive look.<br><br> Slotted rotors are recommended for extreme conditions & speci cally tted for vehicles with racing pads. OVERSIZED ONE-PIECE ROTORS Incorporates the bene ts of an oversized rotor and application speci c vane geometry for increased brake torque and thermal capacity. VANE GEOMETRY Our discs use three distinctive vane patterns, pillar, straight & curved, to assure maximum air ow & cooling.<br><br> Vane patterns are selected by Brembo Engineers to provide optimum heat dissipation for each application. QUICK RELEASE PAD RETAINING SYSTEM Incorporates anti-rattle feature to eliminate noise and is designed for quick and easy pad changes. OVERSIZED TWO-PIECE cFLOATING d ROTORS Race inspired design reduces unsprung and rotating weight while increasing brake torque and heat dissipation.<br><br> One-piece rotor assembly Two-piece c oating d rotor assembly Most systems available in Red, Silver or Black calipers.

Increased diameter rotors and radial mount calipers greatly improve brake system performance, heat dissipation, and reduce brake fade. Aluminum calipers and lighter weight two piece rotors reduce unsprung weight and differential piston bores provide optimum brake balance and even pad wear.<br><br> IS THE BREMBO BRAKE UPGRADE DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR MY VEHICLE? Brembo Engineers design each brake upgrade speci cally for your vehicle and driving conditions choosing from hundreds of caliper, piston and rotor combinations to achieve maximum performance and optimum brake balance. Additionally, Brembo Brake Upgrades are easy to install and are designed to work seamlessly with your vehicle 9s stock master cylinder, ABS and traction control system.<br><br> WILL I NEED OVERSIZED WHEELS AND TIRES? Wheel size and wheel clearance are important considerations when upgrading your brake system. Many new performance vehicles come with larger wheels and tires and can accommodate a Brembo Brake Upgrade.<br><br> Always check with your sales associate to ensure that your wheels provide the clearance and offset necessary to accommodate your new brake system. DO I NEED TO UPGRADE THE FRONT AND REAR BRAKES? Each Brembo upgrade is designed to give you the exibility to upgrade front or front and rear while maintaining optimum brake balance and performance.<br><br> Complete rear systems are available for many applications and are engineered speci cally to compliment the front system. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DRILLED AND SLOTTED ROTORS? Both drilled and slotted rotors provide increased brake system performance.<br><br> They continuously clean and refresh the pad surface, shed water and debris, prevent gas build up, and increase pad cbite d. Drilled discs offer improved ventilation and slotted discs offer increased durability under extreme braking conditions, speci cally when vehicles are tted with race pads. 18 cC d RADIUS cB d RADIUS cA d Wheel Measurement General Note Given dimensions are related to the Brake system.<br><br> Brembo recommends a minimum clearance of 3mm between the caliper and the wheel spoke or rim. Example 1B1.8006A for Chevrolet C5 Corvette - With a straight edge, measure from the middle of the wheel center bore out to 122 mm for the location of the bottom of the caliper. - Now measure down from the straight edge to the back of the wheel spoke for the system 9s cA d measurement.<br><br> This system needs 49mm or more to leave suf cient caliper clearance. Repeat these (two) steps for caliper clearance through to the top of the caliper. 19 BEDDING PROCEDURE It is very important to follow proper brake bedding procedure following installation.<br><br> This is necessary not only for optimum performance of the system, but also to avoid onset of judder (vibration felt through brake and steering). The discs are delivered with a thin zinc coating to prevent corrosion. Prior to beginning the bedding procedure, this plating must be removed from the braking surfaces by driving the car slowly (under 30mph) and performing very light brake applications in order to remove the plating without generating heat.<br><br> With too much heat or pedal pressure, this plating can be deposited unevenly on the disc, and impregnated into the pad, further increasing the likelihood of judder development. Once a visual inspection of the braking surfaces con rms that the plating has been evenly removed, begin with the bedding procedure as speci ed below. " Drive vehicle to a remote area and perform at least 30 brake applications of 3 second duration.<br><br> Use light/ medium deceleration with varying starting speeds. Leave at least ½ mile between each brake application " The purpose of this procedure is to gradually increase the temperature in the components without thermal shock, and to mate the brake pad and disc friction surfaces " After the repeated stops, drive the vehicle for several miles with little or no braking in order to adequately cool the components " The system is now ready for normal use NOTE: This entire procedure must be complete before driving the vehicle as normal. It is especially important that this process is completed before any extended same-speed driving is done (i.e.<br><br> freeway travel). Failure to follow these instructions greatly increases the likelihood of judder development. NOTE: After installation or bleeding of the brake system, ush any brake uid from around the bleed screws, etc, using soapy water.<br><br> Over time, brake uid trapped in these areas may cause paint damage. Additionally, do not use acidic wheel cleaners when washing your vehicle, as they can cause damage to the caliper nish and aluminum disc mounting bells, as well as to the wheels themselves. Use only soap and water when cleaning wheels or braking components.<br><br> 20 BREMBO S.p.A.
