Goldwing brake discs

Postby Keith Legge » 28 Feb 2013, 11:21

Been on the lookout for front brake discs for the Wing damned expensive so was hoping to get a decent used set :lol: they are like hens teeth.
Anyway patience has paid off found a brand new set for half price :shock: trader getting rid of old stock ordered Tuesday and arrived last night hows that for service. :D
Guess what i'm doing today? ;)

:thinking:
I would guess you are moving the wing into the living room in order to use each spare second to fiddle with them brakes?

Right hand disc is the worst but the other one isn't much better.

Nice new shiney ones not as nice looking as the old ones but hidden behind the Ring of fire anyway 8-)

Tried to photograph the knackered discs.

Took for a run round the block much better and the wobble i can feel on the steering has improved so i think at least one of those discs is warped.

Keith, does that old disc have a lip or raised area at its outer edge? (If so, I've never seen one that worn.)
'Tis not its looks, but how it cooks.
And I've found that most liter size Pans, when warmed up, cook well.

Yes Dave it had a lip :shock: and i've never seen one that bad before it was hidden behind the ring of fire so i couldn't see it when i bought the bike. :(

Sneaky of the previous owner but there you go. :roll:

Damn they do look well worn Keith no wonder you had issues stopping.
EDIT Did you check the front wheel bushes for wear whilst you had it off as Im betting they are well used too?

Didn't bother checking Andi just replaced them i have still got a wobble on the front end which is something Wings are prone to, not such a problem when you know about. Bum clenching when you don't. :lol:

I don't think that level of wear would be uncommon for high mileage discs. I just replaced my rear disc, after 165,000 kms and it looks like this:

Even so, this disc is still comfortably outside the wear limit spec of .240 in. If you can't make out the micrometer reading, it says .274 in. Granted, that is measuring the tops of the grooves scored by the pads, but I'd say it is still serviceable. Having the lip on the disc does make it a bit more work to get the caliper off the disc though.

From memory i think the right hand disc was 2.8mm minimum wear is 5mm :shock: left hand wasn't much better.
