cNw / Brembo Front Brake System


Manufacturer: cNw & Brembo

Description: This is an incredible, well-balanced brake system that will bolt up to your Norton Commando. Quality, fit and finish is unmatched. If you want the best. This is it!!

Certain parts of this system used to be finished in chrome but as of March 2014, the caliper and caliper bracket will be show polished (aluminum). The disc carrier (center) is still chromed for performance reasons

Details:

  • 292 mm full floating disc
  • Stainless steel friction surface that is machined to ensure flatness.
  • Carrier (center) is made if the highest quality billet aluminum and then chromed.
  • Silent washers allow the performance of a true full floating disc, while eliminating the noise usually associated with floaters.
  • 4 piston differential bore calipers allow for even brake wear and help prevent unnecessary brake lock-up.
  • Caliper is show polished alloy
  • Caliper is machined on the back for proper clearance. In other words, this is a unique cNw caliper specifically designed for the Norton application
  • Dual o-rings. Brembo calipers are the only calipers available in the aftermarket with built-in dust seals–this ensures long caliper life.
  • Proprietary hard coating on pistons and bores. This allows for smooth movement of pistons in the bore, and eliminates scoring of the bore as well as corrosion.
  • Cycle tested to 300 years. This sounds unbelievable but it’s true! These calipers are cycle tested at Brembo’s facility to simulate 300 years of use and outdoor conditions including thermal shock, salt spray, etc.
  • 13 mm master cylinder cast in aluminum, with a black or polished alloy lever.
  • Micro brake light switch mounts to your master cylinder.
  • Fork leg bracket allows you to install the 4 piston caliper to your Norton fork leg. This piece is CNC milled and then show polished
  • Stainless braided brake line with stainless banjos.
  • Special ARP 12 point bolts for mounting disc to your Norton hub.
  • Kit is complete with all hardware and instructions

Important Notes:

  • This system does not work with stock fender stays. Use fender stay See Here or a different fender such as the cNw model See Here
  • Right hand switch cluster will be eliminated. You can use a left side master switch like what we offer See Here
  • If you want to retain your original Lucas switch cluster, we offer this clamp as an option
  • The kit will be shipped with a polished brake lever. If you prefer a Black lever, make a notation in the comment box when placing the order

cNw / Brembo Rear MKIII Disc Conversion


Manufacturer: cNw & Brembo

Description: This is an upgraded cNw rear MkIII brake kit. We decided to get rid of the bulky, inefficient , stock master cylinder design altogether.  Even though our first generation rear kit was a big improvement over the stock set-up, this new kit is taking it to the next level of both performance and overall design. We start with a small and efficient master cylinder made by Brembo. To house this unit we are CNC machining a cover that bolts to the existing foot rest. We make a special clevis that is designed in such a way that it allows you to easily adjust where you want your brake pedal to be located when relaxed.  We decided to work with a 270mm full floating disc and designed the carrier and disc to match the front. The brake rotor, just like the front, is made out of stainless steel to give you optimum stopping power during any conditions. The carrier is CNC machined out of billet aluminum and them chromed for easy maintenance and stunning looks. To mount the disc to the Commando hub we include aircraft grade stainless steel ARP 12 point bolts. For optimum performance and weight savings we opted for a Brembo 2 piston caliper to perfectly fit the smaller disc. The relocating bracket, that allows you to use the stock MKIII caliper carrier, is also CNC machined and then show polished. The Brembo caliper is also show polished

Certain parts of this system used to be finished in chrome. As of March 2014 the caliper and caliper bracket will be show polished (aluminum). The disc carrier is still chromed for performance reasons

Details:

  • Small and extremely light weight Brembo master cylinder
  • Unique CNC machined aluminum cover to house the master cylinder
  • System uses a  small (15 cc), remote,  reservoir that is tucked out of the way but easily accessed for service
  • The remote reservoir has a bracket that locates it on the inside of the upper shock bolt. The bracket is made in such a way that it works with a Corbin seat bracket if that is used
  • New hydraulic pressure switch for brake light operation
  • New CNC machined billet foot rest spacer. This to replace the original that has the cutout for the  brake hard line that we no longer use
  • Stainless steel push pin and unique clevis that allows for easy adjustment of brake pedal
  • 270mm full floating Brembo disc with silent floating mounts
  • Stainless steel rotor for ultimate stopping power, strength and looks
  • Rotor is drilled and the carrier center is machined to match our front brake # 602
  • CNC machined, chromed carrier for strength, weight savings and durability.
  • Show polished 2 piston Brembo caliper
  • CNC machined and show polished relocating bracket for the caliper.
  • Braided, coated stainless steel brake line for unmatched performance, strength and looks
  • Kit includes all fasteners, fluid lines and parts that you need to make the complete conversion….just add brake fluid
  • All you will retain from your original system is the brake pedal
