First look: Galfer 280mm front brake conversion kit

GALFER launches new 280mm oversized front brake conversion kit for most major off road motorcycle models.

 

Spanish braking specialists Galfer have released a new RWSX 280mm oversized front brake kit to the off road market. Designed to meet the “current trend to increase the size of the front disc” say Galfer, it is a simple conversion to offer an upgrade to most manufacturer’s standard front brake set-up.

The RWSX 280mm kit includes:

  • Fixed grooved, stainless steel 280mm oversized disc/rotor
  • Caliper spacer 
  • One set of high-performance Sport Racing G1396R pads

The kit is designed to use the OE caliper mounting bolts on Honda CRF250/450 models, KTM/Husqvarna 125/250350/450, Kawasaki KX250/450, Yamaha YZ125/250/450 F and even the Suzuki RMX 450 Z (for complete fitment guide visit the link below).

Compared to the standard disc, the larger 280mm disc size improves braking performance particularly in tougher weather conditions or at higher speed riding. Though the kit is primarily aimed by Galfer at MX models, we know riders wanting the improved performance in off road and enduro also benefit from the upgrade and opt for this upgrade, especially for faster events.

 

Price: €252 (excluding VAT)
