Slip me a disc

Old Bike Australasia - - ROYAL ENFIELD CLASSIC 500 STEALTH -

In an ear­lier is­sue we gave you de­tails of the new re­place­ment disc ro­tors for the Honda CB750 by the Span­ish NG com­pany. Now a limited stock of these has ar­rived at Aus­tralian dis­trib­u­tors Kenma, and they fit straight on to the bike with no mod­i­fi­ca­tions re­quired. The semi-float­ing de­sign gives more even heat dis­tri­bu­tion and more con­sis­tent brak­ing per­for­mance than the orig­i­nal solid type, and they are vir­tu­ally in­dis­tin­guish­able from the orig­i­nal. The ma­te­rial used in the ro­tor it­self is also su­pe­rior to the orig­i­nal, min­i­miz­ing pad glaz­ing and squeak­ing. Used in con­junc­tion with SBS Ce­ramic pads (Part no: 502HF), it means a new stan­dard of stop­ping power for the ven­er­a­ble CB750. Kenma is hop­ing to ex­pand their range of NG discs for clas­sic bikes, with the Kawasaki Z1/Z900 pos­si­bly be­ing the next in line.
