If you ride regularly then there will come a time you need to change your brake pads, and often that project poses the perfect opportunity to swap out your old rotor or rotors as well. That’s exactly what we did when our BMW S1000R finally ate through the better part of its stock pads.
Galfer is a leading manufacturer of braking components in the US, so we turned to them and sourced a fresh Wave Rotor and Sintered HH Brake Pads to get the job done. In just a few simple steps the binders are working better than before, but before you take on a similar project yourself, be sure to consult the manufacturer’s recommended installation process. We offer the basic steps and some additional tips (in the video) to complete the job, but bikes can vary and doing the job right is essential to keeping your braking system safe and effective on the road.
