American Suspension Stoppie King™ Brakes – Made in USA

 

The standard motorcycle brake caliper has a basic problem. The thing is necessarily shaped like the letter “C” with the force of the pistons exerted on the top and bottom of the letter. This force spreads the caliper apart like opening a book. The result is that some of the force generated by the master cylinder is wasted, actually in spreading the caliper. The inevitable result is increased lever travel and tapered pad wear.

Caliper designers spend a lot of time trying to minimize this deflection. Some try variable piston sizes to minimize tapered pad wear. Others use cute calipe
