1800 brake pads

Post by branson0319@att.net »



I own a 2004 1800 Goldwing with a 2013 Champion Trike kit installed on it ,, Need to install brake pads am being told I have to buy the pads from Champion as it is a prioritized item and only they can sell them I checked as much as I could and came up with a number for them D101 P Which no parts store can find as I need a application number ???? As a result I can,t get brake pads without going through Champion Is this true ?? Or is there anyone out there who knows what information I need to order brake pads Would like to thank anyone who can help me out Can,t believe that they are the only place to get pads Stephen Parker 106026

Although I cannot help you, the trike company probably does not make or contract special calipers or brake pads, so you are correct that they should be available from elsewhere. You only need to determine who makes the calipers, I would think.

Champion has removed any numbers to identify the pads Convenient don,t you think ??? But I,m certain in my mind that it isn,t just them who supply them Someone will know Thanks for responding Stephen

Yes ... at least for the solid axles, the brake pad part number is known as a D101P. It known to be used on 68 Karman Ghias, or there about. To NAPA that number is a TS-755; however, they are probably several states away. Autozone can cross them and often has them in stock.

However, the info above may or may not be relative to one with independent suspension.

Unfortunately, the Champion trike part of the manufacture was sold to some company in the middle east a few months ago, so if you call Champion, you will find little to no support. Because of poor parts support, many trike dealers quit working on them many months ago.

One more option ... if yours really are a D101P style brake pad, the preferred pad is one that CSC uses for their Harley trikes. It fits and is chamfered on the heal and toe. Be sure to remove the backing plate. CSC part # BRAKE-FOC 6 FF.

Good luck with your search.

Thanks to all of you who have responded to my request for help It is greatly appreciated Champion sent me brake pads as I thought I need them, so get what you can and replace the pads Hope they sent me the right pads and if they didn,t i,m probably screwed ..Still not convinced they are a Champion priority part only .. Hoping the pads I take off have a readable number on them so I can get the correct part number ..Once again Thanks for the help Stephen

Time to cultivate a friendship with an employee in an auto parts store, so he/she can match up your pads to something easier to get your hands on.

I,ve talked to everyone I know at part stores in my area I have what you would call a generic number D101 P but without a application number they can find nothing .. I, guess i,m the only Champion owner who has had to replace brakes as it seems no one has a good part number for me only a lot of speculation thus far and Champion is not sharing the part number but did sell me the pads obscured the numbers on the pads though as guess they want it kept that way Oh well Stephen
