Disc brake maintenance

No adjustment is necessary but the pads should be checked for wear every 10,000 kilometers and replaced by new Textar pads as soon as they are worn down to their minimum thickness. The condition of the brake discs should be checked at the same time. If scoring, cracks, distortion or other damage is detected, the only thing to do, is to replace the brake discs to be on the safe side. The calipers should also be inspected for damage or hydraulic fluid leaks.

The pistons must move freely. Corrosion or damaged dust seals can cause the pistons to become sluggish or seize. If in doubt, re-seal the caliper or replace it. For fixed calipers and calipers with open sliding guides, a major caliper overhaul should be carried out every 3 years or 60,000 km. For calipers with enclosed sliding guides, this should be done every 3 years or 90,000 km.
