Performance Machine Stage 1 Trike Brake Kit
Performance Machine says its Stage 1 Trike Brake Kit eliminates brake fade and increases the stopping distance dramatically with less pedal effort. Using the 2010 Harley-Davidson Tri-Glide as a test unit, engineers combined the company’s four-piston caliper with the integrated race technology of its rear contour master cylinder to create an entirely new brake system for trike applications. Offered in chrome, black and contrast cut finishes, the four-piston calipers provide more clamping force to slow the bike down, while the company’s rear master cylinder provides the extra fluid to the big brakes.
MSRP: Starting at $1399.95
