Just take a second to consider what your brake pads do every time you ride. Each time you apply the brakes these pads are pushed by hydraulically operated pistons onto the disc surface under extreme pressure, creating high levels of friction that can bring your Yamaha to a standstill in a few seconds.
Most motorcycles, scooters, snowmobiles and ATVs can stop more quickly than they can accelerate, and this outstanding disc braking performance is handled by a few square centimetres of non-asbestos friction material that is bonded to a pressure plate.
Yamaha Genuine brake pads are developed specifically for each Yamaha in order to achieve the best balance of braking performance and to suit individual model requirements. Compare this to some aftermarket pads that are made to fit a wide range of vehicles, regardless of their power, weight or type of use.
