Disc brake thickness

Recommended Posts

as a general rule + -'52-66  all of the dry discs were roughly 1/2" when new and 7/16 when completely useless

add 60 + years of wear on the other 4 surfaces and china $#&%^ material,  you only get a few years out of a new set

if there is noticeable wear on the other parts then remachining is in order

also if over centering  ,locking or sticking

This!  When you use up all your adjustment and they stick on it's time for new disks.  If somebody would make disks just a bit thicker for the same price or only a Buck or two more They would own the replacement brake disk business.

I took my caliper to my dealer a couple years ago, A&I disks were a couple thousandths thicker and half the price of CIH disks.  The CIH was from an opened package, somebody measured it before me.
