Disassembly of brake disc
- Check the damage of suspension and brake components
- Instead of defective parts
- Remove the caliper
- Ensure no tension load is applied on the brake hose.
- If required,uninstall caliper bracket,
- Remove brake disc.
Derusting and cleaning the wheel hub
- Thoroughly clean surface rust from wheel hub mounting face.
- Derust wheel hub and clean thoroughly.
- Check the brake anchor plate and wheel hub mounting surface for damage.
We suggested checking the mounting faces for true running using a dial gauge and stand.
Lateral run-out should not exceed 0.04mm. In case it does we recommend installing a KINGRACING wheel hub.
Installing the new brake disc
NOTE: Always change the brake pads along with the brake discs.
- Remove the corrosion inhibitor from the new brake disc using a suitable cleaning person
- The new brake disc must be entirely free of residual grease!
- If necessary, Position the new brake disc on the wheel hub and secure it.
KINGRACING brake discs:
- KINGRACING brake discs come as ready-to-be-installed assemblies. They do not require cleaning and/or degreasing.
- NOTE: Do not change the anti-corrosion coating of the KINGRACING brake disc.
- If necessary, position the new brake disc on the wheel hub and secure it.
- Measure brake disc for lateral run-out at approx. 15mm from the outer disc edge.
- When installed, lateral run-out should not exceed 0.13mm.
- Use appropriate tooling.
NOTE: Always change all brake discs and pads per axle! Always change brake pads along with brake discs (for instructions see right-hand column).
