Brembo Issues Recall on Certain Motorcycle Brake Pads and Calipers

Brembo’s motorcycle brake pad supplier, Federal-Mogul Italia, has advised the company of technical problems that have occurred during its manufacturing process which may have compromised the quality of a batch of pads manufactured by the supplier.

According to Federal-Mogul Italia, the only batch of pads affected was Batch #672.

The potential defect in the pads could compromise the vehicle brake performance, with safety risks for the rider.

As a preventative measure, Brembo has elected to proceed with a recall of all brake calipers fitted with Federal-Mogul pads from Batch #672.

The calipers with potential faulty pads were sold in Brembo kits as replacement spare parts.

The distribution network has been notified of the issue in order to have any potentially unsold faulty kits withdrawn from the market and to have customers that may have purchased affected kits notified immediately.

To check the kits involved in the recall campaign, as well as the list of distributors, users can log on to: www.qualitycontrolbrembo.com

The recall campaign concerns only kits indicated in the above website and does not affect or relate to any other calipers or spare parts kits.

This is the second recall that Brembo has issued in 2018. In January, the company recalled front brake master cylinders produced between 2015 and 2017 and fitted to new bikes.
