The Breakdown on Brakes
OPP Racing carries a full line of motorcycle brake upgrades: brake (and clutch) levers, braided brake lines, brake rotors, brake calipers and brake pads. To help you navigate the huge array of choices, we've chosen to "brake" up our categories:
THE ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE BRAKE SYSTEM
Brembo is the largest and most advanced brake system company in the world. If you look carefully on MotoGP, Superbike and limited production model bikes all you will find is Brembo. Virtually all the necessary brake components for motorcycles can be upgraded to Brembo one by one or all at once. Most are even offered in direct bolt-on kits for ease of install. When you want to improve braking performance the best solution is Brembo.
BRAKE AND CLUTCH LEVERS
Replacing your brake and clutch levers do not yield an increase in braking performance but enhances the comfort and look of your motorcycle.
LighTech brake & clutch levers are used extensively by World Superbike riders. Most often mated with a Brembo master cylinders but also available for OEM systems, LighTech's remote adjust brake levers allow racers to adjust for brake fade on-the-fly without taking their right hand off the throttle. LighTech levers are also popular as ergonomic upgrades with adjustable lever travel and crash damage mitigation with their folding lever. Last but not least - sleek & beautiful Italian styling!
Gilles Tooling is the newest company to offer replacement brake and clutch levers. Featuring a ratcheting adjustment mechanism, 3 unique looks and choice of Gold / Silver / Black, there's a style to suit everyone. Gilles Tooling levers are also popular as ergonomic upgrades with adjustable lever travel and crash damage mitigation with their folding lever. Currently only available only for OEM master cylinders.
CRG is one of the oldest and most well known provider of clutch and brake levers. Their popular Roll-a-Click style levers are an inexpensive upgrade that enhances both comfort and looks. Every CRG lever is manufactured using a premium ball bearing to ensure smooth operation (unlike some cheap knock-offs) and available in Short / Long lengths and Gold / Grey / Black colors. Their higher end line-up also includes Folding Roll-a-Click Brake & Clutch levers and Supersport / GP replacement clutch systems (for cable clutches).
STAINLESS STEEL BRAIDED BRAKE & CLUTCH LINES
Braided Brake Lines should be the first upgrade for ANY motorcycle. Braided brake lines eliminate brake fade caused by hose expansion under heat. Imagine riding for the afternoon, speeding along at 150 mph, seeing a deer (Bambi) up ahead, grabbing the brakes...and NOTHING!!! BRAKE FADE!!! Your brakes fluid has heated up your OEM rubber brake lines and your brakes don't work properly. Save yourself and Bambi, your bike and the need for new underwear by installing a set of Spiegler or Galfer braided brake lines.
FRONT & REAR BRAKE ROTORS
Brake Rotors acts as friction material and is a core part of your motorcycle's brake system. Aftermarket brake rotors are offered in different materials to suit different riding conditions (race vs. street/touring) and have improved cooling characteristics compared to OEM.
BrakeTech manufactures the world's most technologically advanced brake rotors! Experience better braking and longer rotor life - choose from: their flagship Ceramic Matrix Composite Rotors (featuring stealth bomber technology - superior to Carbon/Carbon rotors!), full-floating Axis/Cast Iron Rotors and full-floating Axis/Cobra Stainless Steel Petal-Style (Wave) Rotors.
Braking offers the largest line-up of both front and rear brake rotors. Designed and manufactured in Italy, Braking offers street and race rotors to suit all styles of riding. Their top of the line SK Race rotors are even directional for the least rotational mass and optimal heat dissipation.

FRONT AND REAR BRAKE PADS
Brake Pads are the most often replaced brake parts and also a core component to your brake system.
