April 2014 E Newsletter
NewsBrake Notes - from Larry Mills.
Spring is here and Summer riding weather is just around the corner!
I realize that we will stay have some of those "winter just does not want to leave" days now and then, but the days are getting longer, the sun is getting warmer and good times are heading our way!
April is the time that the two wheel roar can be heard all around the country and not just in the sunny parts. Now is also the time that thoughts turn to repair and upgrading, and that means DP Brakes is the answer…at least when it comes to brakes and clutch products!
I spent a lot of time on the road in March, down at Bike Week and at dealer events around the country, and if I heard it once, I heard it a hundred times…”people want quality and value.”
That’s good news for DP, since we are strong in both categories.
At DP Brakes, all of our top-shelf brake and clutch products are designed and manufactured for meeting the changing expectations for both dealers and consumers.
Both as replacements and performance upgrades for O.E sintered metal brake pads, DP Brakes complete product line offers fitments for every riding application, including racing, sport, touring, and cruising. Additionally, our expanded line now offers pad fitments for the increasingly-popular off-road and ATV markets.
Our clutch kits are doing well also with the ease of having everything…friction plates, steel plates and springs…complete in an attractive, durable case. There’s no need to pre-soak the plates either!
DP Brakes and clutch kits are quality designed, manufactured, and targeted to satisfy a new breed of motorcycle, ATV and snowmobile buyer, upgrade, or replacement parts shopper. Take a look at our completely redesigned website www.dp-brakes.com, and check out what I'm talking about...fitments, coverage, quality and more.

Champion’s Choice! Winners choose DP Brakes.
Having trouble deciding on replacement brake pads for a dirt bike or ATV? The top race teams aren’t and the list reads like a Who’s Who of powersport. Mitch Payton’s Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki Team is using DP. For the 14th consecutive season. In GNCC it’s the Am Pro Yamaha riders, and Team KTM and Team KR4. In WORCS/Endurocross it’s FMF/RPM KTM and Team Stillwell’s American Beta, in National Hare Scrambles it’s Gas Gas/Sherco and Rich Lafferty Racing. On and on it goes.
None of this is surprising. Those SDP PRO-MX off-road brake pads deliver the kind of performance racers demand. The specially formulated sintered material (DP introduced sintered brake pads to the motorcycle market), grips tight for safe, sure stopping, in most applications there’s a ceramic heat block on the backing plate for fade free operation, the pads are easy on the rotors and they work virtually noise and dust free. And just as importantly, they last. At least three times longer than ordinary pads. With DP riders don’t worry about their brakes going away, even in a two- or three-hour long muddy, sandy race. And the DP Standards, OEM upgrade/replacements, are no less impressive. They’re an ideal pick for all around off-road and ATV use.
Parts Unlimited has all of this, the same top performing brakes pads the winner’s choose. DP doesn’t cost more than any other premium brake pad on the market, either, so check with your Parts Unlimited rep for stocking advice. And visit the DP Brakes website, www.dp-brakes.com. There’s lots more information there and a full listing of all the racers who’ve made the switch to DP.
