Brakes: Safety Tipz and Speed Trix
Race organizations require the caliper bolts to be safety wired... but these smaller bolts are far more likely to loosen. Every bike is different, I recommend that you check yours out and if there are no cotter pins, Please Safety Wire Them !!
The white arrows point to the spots to drill through the both the caliper and bolt at the same time so they can be safety wired.
At the very least use a bead
of orange silicone on the head of the bolt. Anything to prevent the
bolts from backing out.
X's mark the pad retainer spring. These are for street riding, they keep
the brake pads from squealing. On the race track they trap heat and
brake dust, which prevents the caliper pistons from retracting properly.
