June 2014 E Newsletter
NewsBrake Notes - from Larry Mills.
At last...it is summer and the road is calling!
"June is the beginning of the real summer season around my neck of the woods. The sights and sounds of changed from howling winter winds to more ear-friendly ones!
In fact, can you hear that?
That is the sound of the road calling, and the two wheeled beast in my garage is ready, willing, and able to answer the call. And, so am I!
June is a great month to hit the highways and enjoy the weather and the scenay. It is also the time of the year to make sure your motorcycle is in road trip shape, starting with your brakes. A little prevention will save a lot of cure later on!
June is the time to grab onto that upgrade...and show your new found performance off to the world.
When it comes to replacing or upgrading when it comes to brakes and clutch products DP Brakes delivers on both counts!
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 deliver 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.

DP Brakes will be the official Mountain Bike Brake sponsor for the 2014 Eastern States Cup.
The Eastern States Cup offers professional and amateur racing with Downhill, Super D and Enduro mountain bike racing at the best bike parks in the east. The series offers four USA Cycling Regional Championships and the Eastern Coastal DH Championship.
3. DP Brakes are the choice for top dirt bike and ATV racing teams.
For example, Mitch Payton’s Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki Team is using DP. For the 14th consecutive season. In GNCC it is the Am Pro Yamaha riders, and Team KTM and Team KR4. In WORCS/Endurocross it is FMF/RPM KTM and Team Stillwell’s American Beta, in National Hare Scrambles it is 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.
4. DP Brakes now offering replacement upgraded brake pads for Can-Am Spyder’s.
DP Brakes is now offering brake pad upgrade replacements for Can-Am Spyder’s. All DP Brake Pads will provide significant improvement in performance and durability over your stock pads”.
Riders will experience fade free performance under all conditions, plus, all DP Brake pads are quiet, dust free and are non-abusive to the rotors.
5. DP Brakes for HDs are a perfect match.
DP covers the entire HD field. There are direct-fit drop in DP pads for all the popular after market calipers, too, and DP Brake Pads are even OE with Performance Machine.
The big issues Harley riders have with their brake pads are noise, dust and wear. With DP all that is taken care of and, almost as a bonus, they will be getting a brake pad that is not only street proven, but race proven, brake pads with more than three decades worth of experience behind them.

6. DP clutch kits offer the ease of having everything…friction plates, steel plates and springs…complete in an attractive, durable case.
The friction plates, more durable than anything OE, are ready to go with no need to pre-soak.
A DP clutch kit will provide extended service life coupled with super smooth, fade free performance. Each kit includes the DP specially- compounded friction plates, heavy-duty steel drive plates and upgrade springs. DP steels, unlike ordinary aluminum plates, will not expand, fade or produce clutch swell and the increased weight even adds a bit of flywheel effect improving those starts. Factor in the chrome silicone wire spring sets DP includes, heat treated and shot peened for maximum life, and you are looking at a complete clutch kit that’s tough to beat.
DP Brakes pads and clutch kits are designed, manufactured, and built with quality and long lasting value. Take a look at our website, www.dp-brakes.com, for fitments, coverage, and more.
