Review of Kodiak Accessories and Parts KDBC250E


Today we're going to look at the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper with the E-Coat finish for 7,000 to 8,000 pound axles. Now this caliper is a cast iron construction, prevents flexing, helps keep your breaking torque consistent, uses a self-adjusting design to ensure smooth, even breaking, has a low drag ability to retract the piston further than traditional models, which will give you less friction, and that leads to a cooler running break. Now the piston itself, let me just pop the pad out. There's your piston. It's a two and a half inch diameter piston, which is 30% larger than in most disc brake system. This will give you increased breaking torque and a shorter stopping distance. The break pads themself are a semi-metallic break pad, which are powerful and long lasting.

It gives you strong breaking power with minimum pressure when applied to the pedal. The heat is conducted away from the rotor to prevent any heat-damage. Let me go ahead and put that right back in the piston there. Now it does have a nice E-coat finish over it. It provides corrosion resistance for fresh water and limited salt water use. The caliper will include the two stainless steel guide bolts with the thread locker on each thread there.

Has a dual port bleed screw, uses a silver cadmium-plated steel piston, and I mentioned the semi-metallic friction pads. This part is made in the USA. Again, the application on this is for disc brakes with the axles' rating of 7,000 pounds to 8,000 pounds, and uses rotor diameter of 13 inches. That should do it for the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper in the E-Coat finish for 7,000 pound to 8,000 pound axles.
