What does a brake system for a motorcycle consist of?

When the road traffic gets tricky, the brake system often decides the outcome. A powerful braking systemcan save lives on the road. In racing, it can make the difference between victory and defeat. The range of accessories for braking systems has long since become confusing, especially for the layman. For optimal and safe braking it is necessary to critically examine the individual parts.

Everything under control - the brake valve

It is literally the command center of your brake. Its use requires sure instinct.

The pump is the heart of the brake valve. Especially new motorcycle models rely on radial designs. A brake lever is also essential: it must be easy to operate while riding. Leverages adjustable by a ratchet mechanism have proven themselves in practice and allow individual adjustment to the pilot.

How does the brake pump work?

If the rider wants to reduce speed, he/she reduces the rotation of the wheel and thus the brake disc. This happens via the brake pads. They generate the highest possible coefficient of friction and decelerate effectively.

A hydraulic system is used to press the brake pads onto the brake discs. It consists of the pump, the brake lines and the brake caliper. When you pull the brake lever, the force is transferred to the brake piston. It transfers the pressure to the brake fluid. The brake fluid cannot compress. It therefore transmits the pressure evenly and without loss to the piston of the brake pads. The pads press against the brake disc and the vehicle decelerates.

If the braking effect decreases, this is usually due to water or air that has formed in the system. Both can be compressed in contrast to the brake fluid. The pressure point becomes soft or even disappears completely. This shows what influence brake pumps have together with the brake fluid on the brake system.

What is the difference between a radial and an axial brake pump?

In 1985 Brembo filed the first patent for a radial piston pump. This was the birth of the idea to revolutionize brake systems. The roots of this pump lie in racing. The space for mounting on racing machines was and still is very limited and therefore always presents new challenges for the developers.

These brake piston pumps have several advantages in their luggage: driver ergonomics are noticeably improved and lever operation is noticeably more efficient. And all this while reducing the space required.

What exactly distinguishes the two designs? The two designs do not differ in terms of braking effect. With the axial pump, the force is transmitted "over the corner". In practice this means: The piston is located on the side of the brake lever. If you pull the lever, the piston is pressed laterally, i.e. axially.

A radial brake pump from Brembo or Magura, for example, transmits the force radially in relation to the pump's anchor point on the handlebars. This means that the pulling force on the lever acts in the same direction as the lever on the piston. The advantages of these systems: larger pistons can be used. This provides better feedback and dosing.

Maintenance and care of the brake system

High frictional forces arise during the journey. Added to this are the stresses caused by dirt, dust and wetness. Brake fluids age. Therefore, regular maintenance and care is essential for the proper functioning of your entire brake system.

In order to be able to withstand the frictional forces already mentioned, the friction surfaces and bolts on the brake cylinder must always be well lubricated. A high-pressure grease or copper paste is suitable for this. If there is no lubrication, the levers move only jerkily at high pressure.

The alignment of the levers also plays an important role. They should be adjusted so that the forearm and the outstretched fingers form a line. Our tip: First, tighten the upper screw when aligning. Then fix the lever with the lower screw. If the clamps are mounted incorrectly, this causes a doughy braking feeling. To find the optimal position for sensitive braking, try all positions of the grip width adjustment. If the hand is resting loosely on the handle, the index and middle fingers extend beyond the lever.

Sensible tuning for more safety and driving comfort

Adjustable levers not only offer more driving comfort, they also allow safe and sensitive braking. A conversion to adjustable levers is therefore recommended. The hand lever, which is adjustable by means of a knurled screw, is part of the basic equipment of the Radial Pump.

If your motorcycle is decelerating with a single-disc brake system, the radial brake pump requires a 13 millimetre encoder piston. In double disc systems, the master cylinder piston depends on the brake caliper. A diameter of between 16 and 19 millimetres is required here. Please note: An ABE (General Operating License) or a parts certificate is required if you are only replacing the brake lever.

The aorta of the brake system - the brake line

During the ride she is literally under pressure and nothing must give way. In practice, you can often see that if you pull the brake lever through to the rubber grip and the brake pads do not move or only move a little, it is time to take a closer look at the brake lines of your bike. The brake hoses and the brake fluid are then the focus of attention.

Most system faults are caused by aged brake fluid. To avoid this, it should be replaced at least every two years. It is hygroscopic and absorbs water as it ages. At the same time the boiling point of the brake fluid drops and its performance also decreases.

What type of DOT brake fluid does your machine need? The cover of the expansion tank usually provides information here. If in doubt, just ask your dealer. The type DOT 5 contains silicone. Therefore it must not be mixed with types DOT 3, 4 and 5.1. They are glycol-based and have a completely different composition than DOT 5. A mixing of DOT 3, 4 and 5.1 is possible.

If you have changed the brake fluid, you have to bleed the brake fluid meticulously. This is especially easy with a brake bleeder set from our range. Important: The pressure point must remain constant during the subsequent function check.

The brake caliper, the pads and the brake disc

Every braking action means the highest stress for your brake system. Therefore it is important that the brake calipers, brake pads and brake disc are always in perfect condition. Only then is it possible to apply the brakes quickly and powerfully in any situation. Everything for cleaning, maintenance and changing the individual components can be found in our TecBike Shops.
