New from FRANDO, a replacement 4-piston brake calliper and floating front brake disc suitable for models of Yamaha’s popular YZF-R6 supersport 600 from 2005-2010.
A relatively new name to UK motorcyclists, FRANDO has manufactured a range of specialist braking components, including discs, callipers and master cylinders, since the 1990′s. The factory operates the ISO/TS16949 international quality management system for automotive suppliers, to ensure consistency throughout the design, development and manufacture of its products.
The calliper body is CNC machined from forged aluminium alloy, with a pitch of 108mm. The four 32mm pistons are made from titanium, which is light, durable and offers excellent heat dissipation, and the brake pads are sintered, for durability and wet weather performance. The calliper body is secured with alloy steel screws. Total weight is 1050g. Retail price is £415- including VAT.
A matching 300mm diameter floating disc is also available. Its outer is 5mm thick Japanese stainless 420 steel, with an aluminium 7075 inner, chosen for its high strength-to-density ratio. The buttons that connect the inner and outer are produced from Japanese galvanized iron SU304 and carry a 2-year worldwide warranty. Retail price is £187- including Vat.
FRANDO is distributed in the UK by Venhill, the motorcycle control specialists. For more information call 01306 885111 or visit www.venhill.co.uk.
