December 2014 Newsletter
I can not believe it is December...the end of the year with a new one right around the corner!
Where did the Summer and Fall go? Hard to believe that 2014 is about over and 2015 is coming on strong.
Of course this time of year is not just about remembering to soon put 2015 on anything that requires a date. If you live in a cold weather area (and most of us do!) now is the time to make sure that your “highway buddy” has been put to bed safe and secure.
Here are some tips on winterizing your motorcycle.
First, make sure that your bike is stored in a place that is dry and safe. Second, change the oil and filter now. It is a better option than a problem in the Spring! Third, add fuel stabilizer, drain the carbs, and if you plan on a long storage lube the filters as well.
Of course there is nothing worse than a dead battery in the Spring, so remove it from your motorcycle now before you store. Also keep the surface clean and protected as well.
In addition do not forget to check the air pressure in your tires, protect your exhaust system, and keep your sunny day riding buddy covered.
One more thing...do not forget to service all fluids. Pay attention to brake or clutch fluids. If they have not been changed in the past two seasons do it before you store.
Winter is also the time to plan for the future.
Now is also a good time to purchase the upgrades you’ve been thinking about for getting your bike road ready so you won’t miss a moment of quality highway time when the sun starts shining again!
And, make sure you get a hold of the tip top of the line products while you are at it. That, of course, means DP Brakes pads and clutch kits! Check out our website www.dp-brakes.com.Or, feel free to contact me as well at email@example.com.
-Larry Mills, President DP Brakes N.A.
DP Brakes is the choice when it comes time to upgrade your brake pads and clutch.
At DP Brakes our top-shelf brake and clutch products are designed and manufactured to meet, and exceed, the exacting expectations of today's performance savvy riders.
As the only aftermarket manufacturer focusing exclusively on developing and producing sintered metal brake pads, DP Brakes is the leader in the industry.
Sintered-metallic brake pads have become the industry standard. DP is the only aftermarket manufacturer concentrating 100-percent of its production on sintered metal pads.
DP Brakes is unique in the industry. An innnovator in the field, DP is constantly refining, and updating, those specialized compounds to further improve already great performers. They are adding new applications all the time, too, be it for sport, touring, cruising, racing or that increasingly-popular off-road and ATV market. The result of all this is the ideal brake-pad replacement for just about any machine in power sport, two-wheels or four.
DP’s sintered-metallic brake pads deliver the kind of exceptional performance and high mileage riders want. Those sintered-metallic compounds bite hard for sure, safe, stops and do it without any damage or wear to the rotor. And, that performance is there in all conditions, wet or dry, in mud, sand or most anything else. In addition, DP brake pads are quiet. There is no annoying squeal. All that is accomplished with industry-exclusive brake pad formulations, sintered-metallic compounds that include an Inter Granular Graphite Structure (IGGS) mixed throughout the pad. It is a difficult and expensive procedure. Only DP does it. And, unlike ordinary brake pads DP sintered metallics do not throw off any of that messy dust so wheels stay bright, shiny and sparkling brilliant.
Braking with DP pads is fade free, too. Credit that to another DP exclusive, a ceramic backing bonded to the back side of the brake pads. A technology coming from NASA and the space program, that plasma-applied ceramic backing keeps the brake fluid cool for fade-free operation while simultaneously allowing the business-end of the pads to remain hot. A perfect combination since sintered metallic pads perform best when warm.
There is a DP brake-pad upgrade specific for any power sport application, street, track, trail, race or off-road. Whether it is the DP Standards, the SDP Pro-MX or the X-Race Titaniums DP has the right sintered-metal compound for racing, sport, touring, cruising, ATVs, even Harley-Davidsons. It is all covered. Recommending the appropriate DP pad is easy, too, starting with those DP Standards, the ideal OEM replacement. Perfect for every day street, off-road and ATV use, they will deliver excellent all-round braking hot or cold, wet or dry. And, with an industry-high HH+ friction rating they are real performers with one of the lowest wear rates on the market. They will last up to three times longer than most other brands available.
The highly acclaimed SDP Sport HH + compound is the favored choice for hypersport street riding and track days. This sintered copper alloy friction material has been specifically developed to combine that "HH+" friction rating with low lever effort, no noise, low rotor wear and reduced dust. All the SDP Sport HH+ pads come with that exclusive plasma-applied ceramic heat shield to help prevent brake fade even under the most extreme conditions.
SDP Pro-MX pads, developed with help from top factory race teams, are perfect when race performance is the prime requirement. Formulated specifically for MX, Supercross, Enduro, hare-scrambles and cross-country, the sintered copper alloy friction material here offers powerful all-round braking with quick bedding-in, high initial bite and low lever effort. All part numbers here come with DP's trademark ceramic heat shield, too.
No compromise race brakes? The answer is the RDP X-Race Titaniums. They are the brake pads to meet Superbike racing’s extreme demands, pads that will consistently lower lap times by letting riders brake later into the corner with a high degree of control. X-Race Titaniums are favorites on top-level national and international racing circuits.
There are DPs just for the Harleys, excellent all-round performers with those ceramic heat shields, no brake dust for clean wheels, no noise and the lowest pad wear on the market.
In addition, do not forget about all the DP Clutch Kits. This friction-material know how carries right over to a full lineup of DP Clutch Kits, solid-clamping clutches to complement those sintered-metallic brakes. The application lists here cover everything in power sport, too, the DPK Kits for Off-Road and ATV applications, the DPSK Street Clutch Kits, DPSK-F High Performance Kits and the DPHK Harley Clutch Sets. All come with that same DP friction-material performance.
DP Brakes pads and clutch kits are designed, manufactured, and built with quality and long lasting value. Take a look at our web site, www.dp-brakes.com, for fitments, coverage, and more .
