Very effective,give me your questions,but I"m hardly ever here...
A periodic sand blasting will help you with this. If you don;t want to go that route, than you can sand your rotors with 220-600 grit sand paper everytime you service your chain. Circle sand them with some wet sand paper, and wipe clean with a damp cloth. NO BRAKE CLEANER ON THE DISC OR PADS. Brake cleaner is only good for empty calipers and oil spots on your drive way.JoeC said:OK Sergio. What about brake judder? I had a situation with my stock brakes - 30K miles - where I was getting this vibration when braking hard. Seemed worse at higher speeds, especially during track days. Rotors were not warped, but seemed to have glazed spots or something. Took them off and had them bead blasted, which helped some, but the problem was still there.
I eventually replaced the rotors (sorry, went with Braking StremX) and the problem is gone. What can I do to keep keep this from coming back? I've seen some brake suppliers sell a rotor-hone device to resurface the rotors, but seems like a lot of trouble.
Thanks for your thoughts,
I am doing this on my spare time. Time that I don't get paid for and happily do for free. It's time that I give to my fellow riders because I want to help. There is so much knowledge that I feel you all can benefit from. I travel a great deal for work, so if I don't get back to you right away, please forgive me for the delay. My intentions are good, and I am trying to answer all of your questions in a timely manner. If you can't wait, there is always a Galfer tech line that you can call. Its bellow my name under all my posts. You may not be able to talk to me, but someone can help you, wether it's Galfer products or not. My personal e-mail is there as well, you can always e-mail me. How many other direct manufacturers are willing to do that for you? Again, please bare with me in replying to your posts. Thank you all.martinc said:Very effective,give me your questions,but I"m hardly ever here...
ando11 said:alright i have a conundrum for you. i did a ss line replacement last fall. brakes were shit before, not much better after. better initial bite, fade under constant and hard pressure.
when i bleed them i see a constant stream of air coming out of the hose, it never ends.
i bought speed bleeders and they did nothing, still the air problem.
some say the brakes should feel spongey as they do. some say they don't believe that i can't bleed it out. some say get it hot. some have said that i need to replace the crush washers (which i didn't do), some say they've used the crush washers several times.
now all i can say is that the system is open, and it is sucking air from somewhere. would it suck at the crush washers or is it the master cylinder?
Geez,you tell me...blur1 said:well about time! j.k:lol :bow

Frontside720 said:How about a How-to on installing ss lines. I have had ss lines in my garage for over a month. I'm not really sure how to install them and what parts I need. (ie. speed bleeder)
I also dont know where to run the lines. Existing bracket or zip ties? I'm just really cautious when it comes to my brakes. I don't want to screw anything up.
I"m using it with a carefully choosen combo...since you are fairly new here and most probably not familiar with the piece of junk that my old 99 is,here are the braking components on it:RCracer51 said:Please tell me you are not running that thing on the street. I am sure the fine people at CL told you that carbon on carbon requires some heat to work. Be careful my friend.
Seen many carbon/carbon set ups..... the motoGP guys all use mitsubishi's rotors, good stuff.
