News23 QC Testing of Motorcycle disc brake pads

Postby Krauss » Fri 5. Jul 2013, 21:38

Reccomended practice

The paper gives a recommendation on how to test motorcycle front disc brake pads in QC
on a Krauss friction tester. As an example we used a brake of a Kawasaki Ninja 250R.

The procedure is based upon the PV disc brake test. The testing torques have been selected
out of the VDA recommendations & based upon experience gained in the past.

It will create this kind of graph including the friction characterstics µ shown.

Duration of the test is approx. 75 - 80 min.
