Cleveland disk upgrade


Recommended Posts

I have the cleveland 600x6 brake assembly on my STD velocity and would like to go to thicker disks to reduce brake fade. Has anyone done this?


The disk I have is p/n 164-04000 with the 30-75x calipers and the 40-113X wheel. I think the 164-01501 (aka 164-15A) disks are the same except for thickness of the rubbing surface.


It would be nice to know I'm not heading into uncharted waters here.

Before the days of the heavy duty Clevelands I cut off the thin disk and welded on a thicker plate (3/8 in this case) Remachined and chromeplated. Much inprovement. You might have to put a spacer between the shoes to accomidate the thicker disk. this was on a EZE. You could go to 7/16 or 1/2 inch if you wanted to. No detictable wear in 300 hrs. Ray.
