Technical Bound to Beringer Brake Honda CB-500

The Saint Jean Industries Automotive Group, Beringer has developed a new range of more accessible products called Cobapress Reference in braking, Beringer combines since long performance to the quality of manufacturing. Since the purchase of the company by , which despite all the famous Aerotec technology. Released in 2011, the range is currently testing at Moto Revue. But before moving on to the dynamic record, first stage installation.

Handicrafts are entrusted to Raspo, well-known trainer and now Center technique Beringer for the island of France. A reference that gives us all his tricks to work properly the brake on his motorcycle.

Phase 1: relieve the front of the bike

Most garages are equipped with a beam and a hoist to lift the front of the motorcycle. But at home, it is not always clear to dispose of such equipment. In this case, it must opt for a Jack car and a wooden wedge to raise the front of the bike at the level of the engine. A transaction facilitated by the presence of a Center stand.

Phase 2: Removing the caliper and front wheel

We began by removing the brake caliper to replace. Once filed, it removes platelets without tag them for the case where they would be brought to serve again. We do not forget to clean the caliper with the cleaner brake, produced especially dry. With regard to the dismantling of the front wheel, it is very important to note the location of the spacers positioned on the axis of the wheel. This will prevent you to defocus the wheel at the time to wind it and therefore the braking system to malfunction.

Phase 3: Removal of the disc Brakes

In technical terms, a brake disc is fixed with Hexagon CHC – cylindrical hollow – commonly known as BTR. The disk brake is often blocked; it is often slightly shock by a measured hammer blow. Same thing at the time press the key on the screws. The wheel well laid flat, pressed down the key using a small hammer blow. A precaution that should help prevents any risk of screws rounded by the key.

Phase 4: Take a box

No, it is not for this step to the heap! But a good handyman always uses boxes to put the screws, washers and other small parts during disassembly. This avoids losing tips on the way. Moreover, at the end of fiscal, if you have a screw in the box, it is that you forgot something.

Step 5: Check the wheel

Once the disk is removed, we took the opportunity to check the wheel bearings are in good health. It does not eat bread and it can avoid future problems. On motorcycles of a certain age, we also check counter coach is well greased.

Phase 6: Mount the new disk

Before reassembling the new drive, a little bit of wire brush on all seals plans does not hurt. It removes dirt and electrolysis. Then, rotate the new disk by checking its direction of rotation. Then, you go back the previously coated with a bit of thread screws. For clamping, it is necessary to approach the screws one by one before tightening in Star. And unlike a preconceived notion, a brake disc must be perfectly flat. Drives screws must be tight; at least 3.9 kg if there is a torque wrench. And otherwise, a manly tightening but not borrows!

Phase 7: Disassembly of the master cylinder

Before touching the master cylinder of origin, it is imperative to protect the motorcycle from the damaging effects of DOT 4 brake fluid, because this product is very acidic and tasted both the bodies as the seals. Therefore, it should not hesitate to protect the handlebar, the tank and the rear Hugger with broad and thick rags. In the event of misfortune, rinse thoroughly with water. Then you open the master cylinder after having slightly shocked once again the screws with a hammer and handle screwdriver plastic.

Phase 8: Bleed the brake system

All garages serving the brakes by aspirating the liquid through a compressor. But at home, it’s often use the good old recipe of the hose and the bottle. After you open the screw on the brake caliper, empty all liquid from the system by pumping the lever. When there are more liquid, it dismounts the brake lever by removing the brake switch which is either mechanical and works by acting on the lever, or hydraulic and then works by displacement of the fluid.

Phase 9: Mounting the master cylinder and the front wheel

This is the time to raise the front wheel after in good lubricating the axis to avoid electrolysis generated by winter salting and brine. Then we fix the new master cylinder loosely, installing the brake hose and fixed caliper. For what is the hose, always use new seals on banjos. It is indeed crushing seals which are intended to be tightened once and only once to be tight. Do not forget nor work with taste and position the harmoniously brake hose. Thus, it is possible with a paper and a pliers to act over the swage the hose to give a smooth bend.

Phase 10: Filling the master cylinder

Once everything is tight, master cylinder set apart, opens the fill jar and poured gently DOT 4 without put everywhere. When the liquid in the jar, rotate the wrench on the bleeder screw, the hose on the drain connected to the bottle that already contains a DOT 4 background so that the end of the hose is not put in the open air. Then we pump the lever with the screw closed to expel air in the braking system.

Phase 11: Pumping for Pressing brakes

This step is crucial for the proper functioning of the braking system. Once the air has been expelled from the circuit, open the bleed screw keeping pressed brake lever. Then it immediately closes the bleed screw and it starts pumping. Then repeat the operation until this more no air bubble back in the jar by filling the master cylinder and the brake lever to become hard.

Phase 12: Closure of the jar of the master cylinder

Before closing the jar of the master cylinder, the trick is to grease the screws for they do not they grab. Then, you normally tighten the jar. Needless to tighten like a madman, the seal is his job to ensure the tightness of the Assembly.

Phase 13: Last Verifications of Screw Box

Once one has verified that screw box is empty, you can spend in the small work of finishes. In the first place, should connect the brake sensor; check that it works by making contact with the bike and nursing tightness and the presentation of the brake sensor. Then, rotate the brake lever so that it is at the same height as the clutch lever. Finally, set the guard of the brake lever. After that, there is not more than rolling, without forgetting the run-in phase nor Raspo Councils, see below.

Recommendation and Suggestion  From Technician

“I get on average 3 or 4 systems Beringer per month, I also do maintenance and Internet sales. I would say that installing a Beringer system and more generally the operations on the brakes have a difficulty level of 7 on a scale of 1 to 10. Be methodical and meticulous. Especially clean, because the DOT 4 is an aggressive product that spreads across and tackles both the bike to the tools.

Once the installation is done, it must also take care to good running. Because it takes both roder the disc and pads. It must say that for at least 50 km, the system is new. And to avoid any risk of icing, should not slow down limply for 500 meters at all intersections. Is the best well address the lever by taking in a straightforward manner, without apprehension, but without blocking the front either!

The best thing is a stretch of motorway without traffic. Drive you 130 km/h, you frankly brake to slow up to 80 km/h around and repeat you several times. It also allows to adapt to the specifics of a Beringer system, which seems still soft stop, because it provides full braking power without requiring you to tighten the lever as a trapper.

Soon, we will offer you an account of the functioning of the Beringer brake system, when we will have accumulated enough miles to try it rigorously.
