Specially formulated anti-squeal compound brake pads to meet the demands of the Gold Wing. Three (3) sets of Barracuda® brake pads to replace all three sets on all 1984 to 1987 GL1200 motorcycles. Two brake pad sets fit the two calipers on the front wheel and one brake pad set fits the one caliper on the rear wheel.
Maintenance schedule: Honda recommends inspecting your brake pads for wear every 4000 miles or 6400 km and inspecting your brake system every 8000 miles or 12800 km. Brake fluid should be checked every 4000 miles and replaced every 20,000 miles or 32,000 km.
MY GL1200 BRAKE PADS HAVE METAL PLATES SO CAN I USE YOUR BRAKE PADS?
The chatter plate hails back to the days of asbestos brake pads that would harden up over time and cause the pads to squeal. The chatter plate was an anti-vibration device to reduce that squeal. When federal law banned the use of asbestos, the new pad compounds didn't harden up like they use to so the chatter plate became redundant. You will not be able to find any aftermarket brake pad maker that includes the chatter plate.
Our brake pads have the correct thickness for replacing the chatter plate style pads. Our special pad compound has slightly less metallics than others because some aftermarket pads were found to be damaging rotors.
