Glad to announce, my brake shoe replacement story has a HAPPY ENDING!



Compare with:



I would like to thank the manufacturers of bench and hand-held grinders, and the marketers of grinding and polishing abrasives!

Most of all, thanks to Shane, Service Manager at The Motorcycle Factory, Inc., Woodbridge, VA, for his customized modification of the brake shoes.

LESSON LEARNED: Never, ever, buy brake shoes again from EBC, or probably anyone other than Kawasaki. Reason: Aftermarket product did not fit; sloppy, rough and slaggy casting; poor quality control and/or design.

Other EBC products: My mind's open; their oversize rotor works great on my KLR650. Brake shoes? Not a chance! The few dollars saved were not nearly worth the aggravation of re-working defective parts.
