SBS RACING HISTORY

Andrew Pitt 2-TIMES WORLD CHAMPION SUPERSPORT

SBS racing history started back in the 80s with ceramic- based brake pads that were developed and com- plemented with sinter brake pads in the 90’s in collaboration with Factory teams such as Yoshimura Suzuki, Ferracci Ducati, Muzzy Kawasaki, Erion Honda and first World Superbike Champion Fred Merkel and Team Rumi Honda. In the mid-90s, SBS Racing Service became involved in the World Superbike series where the SBS RS Racing Sinter compound was developed in close cooperation between SBS R&D department and the top teams in the Championship. In 2001, the first DC Dual Carbon version was launched after 5 years of intensive development and testing work.

After several World Champion titles with DC Dual Carbon, the first DS Dual Sinter version was introduced in 2007 after another 5 years of development and testing work. For 2019 season DS-2 Dual Sinter was introduced after several years of R&D work and numerous of bike testing in World & British Superbike. In 2020 newly developed RST Road Sport & Trackday compound replaced previous RS Racing Sinter.

SBS DEVELOPMENT OF RACING COMPOUNDS

The DC Dual Carbon and DS Dual Sinter performance has continuously been improved in line with the intro-duction of new high tech bikes for road racing. In particular, the Superstock 1000 class with standard braking system made higher demands for brake pad performance simultaneously with the development of engine performance, tire compounds, suspension components and not least electronic riding aids such as traction, wheelie, slide-control, engine-brake, ABS, etc. With these electronic riding aids, lap times dropped step by step, also for hobby and trackday riders.

top-level teams and riders in World Superbike, Moto 2 & 3 GP, World Endurance and TT road racing and for riders in National Championships and Track-day enthusiasts. After several World Champion titles in collaboration with SBS ‘Partners in Racing’ teams, first with DC Dual Carbon and later followed by DS Dual Sinter, SBS launched for 2019 season the DS-2 compound to complement the well-known DS Dual Sinter compound. RS Racing Sinter has been the recommended SBS Trackday brake pad since end of the 90és. Since 2020 RS is fully replaced by new RST Road Sport & Track sintered brake pads, which is now the recommended brake pad for Trackday use.

SBS DC Dual Carbon and DS Dual Sinter have since the turn of the millennium enjoyed great popularity among

SBS EXCLUSIVE RACING TECH FEATURES

As the only manufacturer of racing pads, SBS has since the introduction of DC Dual Carbon in 2001 and DS Dual Sinter in 2007 used NRS technology for both the carbon and the sinter based compounds. 100% NRS SAFE – NUCAP RETENTION SYSTEM NRS Nucap Retension System is an advanced mechanical friction material bonding technology based on a matrix of steel hooks raised from the backing plate steel material. The NRS hooks mold into the friction material creating an indestructible and corrosion safe mechanical bond without any use of adhesives.

DEST – DYNAMIC ENERGY SURFACE TREATMENT

DC Dual Carbon racing brake pads are DEST treated to ensure consistent fade-free performance when leaving from SBS production line. No thermal bedding-in is needed on the bike due to the

DEST process which ensures degassing of the carbon based compound to eliminate a gaseous film being created between disc and pad surface to occur loss of brake power (fade).

Ana Carrasco – World Champion In 2018, Ana Carrasco became the first female World Champion ever in road racing at Kawasaki Provec’s Kawasaki 400 Ninja in the World Supersport 300 class, with SBS 955 DC Dual Carbon. Ana Carrasco has also tested DS-2 Dual Sinter, but prefers SBS DC Dual Carbon’s soft and progressive braking performance to her very smooth riding style, which led Ana to her amazing results in 2018 and again in 2019.

SBS DC Dual Carbon is preferred by many riders due to it’s very smooth initial bite and increasing in-stop performance & feel, to give rider excellent front end feeling with the bike. World Champions with DC Andrew Pitt, Chris Vermeulen, Karl Muggeridge, Sebastien Charpentier & Ana Carrasco. World Superbike/Supersport Championship Double World Champion in World Supersport 600 Sebastien Charpentier from Ten Kate Honda, swore to DC Dual Carbon, but always tried to improve his braking style by testing SBS DS Dual Sinter. He returned though always to DC Dual Carbon since DS Dual Sinter proved too aggressive for him. Sebastien’s results speak for them-selves.

DS-1 DUAL SINTER FEED-BACK FROM SBS “PARTNERS IN RACING”

MotoGP Championship In the smallest capacity class Moto3 World Champion runner up Aron Canet and followed by Romano Fenati the MAX Sterilgarda KTM Moto3 both big fan’s of DS-1´s aggressive initial bite and linear & controllable in-stop brake power – when winning Moto3 races! TT Road Racing DS-1’s powerful and precise initial bite has over the years made DS-1 the most preferred compound among most TT road racing teams and riders at the Isle of Man TT and North West 200 races. The victories and riders of TT road racing speak for themselves: John McGuinness, Ian Hutchinson, Michael Dunlop, Dean Harrison, Peter Hickman, Bruce Anstey, Lee Johnston, Ian Lougher, Conor Cummins and many more.

SBS DS-1 is preferred by many riders due to its sharp initial bite and linear brake feel.

World Champions with DS-1 Troy Corser, James Toseland, 5-time WSSP Champion Kenan Sofuoglu, Andrew Pitt, Carlos Checa, Michael van der Mark, Jeffrei Buis, Adrian Huertas & Dominique Aegerter. World Superbike/Supersport Championship At Kenan Sofuoglu’s first titles in World Supersport, powerful initial bite was everything in relation to his riding style. Later, Kenan was involved in the development and testing of the DS-2 as his riding and braking style changed with the change from Honda to Kawasaki. In the smaller capacity classes, Scott Deroue former teammate with Ana Carrasco in the MotoGP class Moto3 was very close in the battle for the World Supersport 300 title in 2018 and 2019. Scott is the type of rider who changes for new brake pads before a race, to achieve the absolute sharpest initial bite in the first laps of the race. Scott Deroue obviously prefers the SBS DS-1 to his Kawasaki.

DS-2 DUAL SINTER FEED-BACK FROM SBS “PARTNERS IN RACING”

MotoGP Championship Moto2 team Intact Dynavolt´s previous top rider Tom Lüthi has been an important factor and test rider in the development of the DS-2. Top priority for him has been controllable braking performance from initial bite in start of braking to end of braking deep inside the corner. Tom use DS-2 Dual Sinter at the very top of the Moto2 championship on his Triumph 765 powered Kalex Moto2 racer. World Endurance Championship Throughout the test period and the debut season, DS-2 has also received great popularity among World Endurance teams, with BMW’s Factory Team finishing on the podium at the 2020 season’s first 24-hour race at Bol dÓr with the BMW S1000RR and ended 2021 season as vice champions with the all new BMW M1000RR always with SBS DS- 2 Dual Sinter.

SBS DS-2 is the latest Racing compound from SBS introduced for the 2019 season, where it is preferred by many riders braking very late and strong and do not want the initial bite to be too aggressive and at the same time need a good feel and strong build-up of braking power during the stop. World Champions with DS-2 Kenan Sofuoglu became World Supersport Champion twice with DS-2 during the final development and tests of the compound and most recently young Manuel González became World Supersport 300 Champion, now a regular top-contender in World Supersport 600, with DS-2 in it´s debut year with his ParkinGO Kawasaki 400 Ninja. World Superbike/Supersport Championship World Champion Manuel González started the 2019 winter test season with DS-1, but couldn’t really get familiar with the initial bite which did interfer with his bike set-up too much for his riding style. He also wanted more braking power and feel while braking deep into the turns. After testing the DS-2 on his Ninja 400, brake performance was exactly as it should be according to “Manu” - his 2019 championship speaks for itself!

DYNAMIC RACING CONCEPT UNIQUE COMBINATION - DUAL SINTER DS-1 & DS-2

DS-1 & DS-2 = DRC As a result of intensive test work, SBS is now the only manufacturer of racing brake pads that offer a dynamic concept where DS-1 and DS-2 can be used individually with different performance or in combination DS-1 / DS-2 on left/ right brake disc with the purpose of fine-tuning brake performance according to the rider’s individual brake preference.

In connection with the test work for the 2018 racing season, the idea for the SBS DRC Dynamic Racing Concept came up. Now with 2 available Dual Sinter compounds with different performance, but with similar wear and temperature characteristics, it became possible to fine-tune and adapt the brake characteristics to the individual rider by combining the DS-1 and DS-2 compounds on the same motorcycle. Testing in IDM German Superbike Example of racing tests with IDM German Superbike Champion Ilya Mikhalchik, who from his time racing in the Superstock 600 was really pleased with the SBS DC Dual Carbon and its “smoothe” initial bite and progressive brake feel. When switching to a heavier, and much faster Superstock 1000 with standard braking system, Ilya did not feel he had sufficient braking power with DC Dual Carbon. It was therefore obvious to switch the Superstock 1000er directly to the DS Dual Sinter DS-2 which has the same characteristics as the DC Dual Carbon, but at a higher level. Ilya was immediately happy with the DS-2 and was able to recognize the feel of DC Dual Carbon, but after many laps and further optimization on suspension and engine / electronics, Ilya mentioned that he was now missing a bit more “bite” at the start of braking, which in the race language is called “initial bite”. To obtain the desired initial bite, the Dual Sinter DS-1, which has very powerful initial bite, was tested. After a few laps, Ilya came in and announced that “it is too powerful, it affects the fork and bike set-up too much”, then DS-1 in the right brake caliber was replaced with DS-2 and Ilya was sent out to try the combination with DS-1 on the left brake disc and DS-2 on the right brake disc. Only when the session was over did Ilya come in with the comment “this is exactly how I want the brakes to work”, a combination of DS-1 and DS-2 and thus a fine-tuning of brake performance by combining performance charac- teristics of the two DS Dual Sinter compounds. This is how SBS DRC Dynamic Racing concept was born.

TIPS & TRICKS SERVICE & MAINTENANCE

SBS Race Service receive many questions on how to service the brake system on race bikes.

Bobbins/shims/washers/clips in the floating system of the brake discs should be kept clean from brake dust. Use pressurized air eventually brake cleaner product to prevent brake dust and particles to build up and preventing movement of the connecting parts between outer brake disc rotor and inner mounting-hub. Brake fluid should be interchanged regularly. To avoid fluid related problems like spongy and inconsistent brake lever, flush fresh fluid after every race event. At hard braking circuits, flush fresh fluid after each day.

To achieve perfect braking performance, point 1 is that the braking system must be 100% free of air. Spend the necessary and preferably a little extra time on a serious bleeding of calipers, brake hoses, banjo-bolts & couplings, brake press sensors and master cylinder. Also very important to keep all parts, especially the brake caliper parts clean. Use a water/soap solution and a soft brush to keep caliper brake pad slots and pistons clean and tidy from brake pad dust and deposit. Do not use aggressive pressurized brake cleaner products for cleaning brake system internals and seals. After cleaning & drying, add with a soft brush a thin layer of brake grease (ie ATE) to the piston walls and push pistons in/out until all are moving smoothly in/out in the caliper seals. Brake disc surface should be kept free of too much brake pad material deposit. In case of buildup of deposit particles, surface can be cleaned with a special diamond file as shown in photo.

Always check brake fluid level and the thickness of brake pads before going out on track for a new session.

Diamond file for cleaning brake disc surface.

BEDDING-IN PROCEDURE

Bedding-in of brake pads and discs is very important to obtain the best and correct performance, without damaging or destroying any of the parts. In short, it is about achieving 100% mechanical contact between the brake disc and the brake pad without adding too much thermal and mechanical load to the brake components. This is best done by riding 2-4 slow laps on the track with the sole purpose of braking as easily as possible, as many times as possible without generating heat in the braking system. Even professional riders are often seen braking-in the brake pads in pit lane while entering the track, by repeatedly pulling the brake lever with high pressure all the way out on the track. By doing so, there is a great risk of destroying the brake pads, as some areas

of the brake pads will glaze-up and become hard and damaged. This is NOT the way to perform a good bedding- in. For SBS Racing brake pads, it is important to follow the described bedding-in procedures for each individual compound. RST, DS-1 and DS-2 are quite simple to bed-in if given the above mentioned 2-4 slow and easy laps. The same applies to DC, but if discs are new or previous used pads are from another compound or type of brand, attention must be given to establish a so-called DC Transfer film on the discs, see bedding-in details for DC Dual Carbon at page 8.

FRONT WHEEL DRAG

When the motorcycle and brake system is cooling, it is often seen on hard brake circuits that the front wheel starts to drag more and more. When completely cooled to ambient temperature it is sometimes seen that the front wheel can be difficult to spin. Before the bike goes out on the track again, it is recommended to “zero” the brake system by pressing the brake pads and thus the pistons back, by moving the floating discs and pads in/out – until the wheel is turning completely free. Then pump the brake lever until there is again contact between the brake pads and disc, and the brake lever feels firm/hard.

A known issue with the use of sintered brake pads for racing is that the front wheel/discs drag in the calibers. This problem is generated by the sinter material’s good heat transfer properties, which ensures that the heat generated between the brake disc and the brake pad is transferred directly through the friction material to the steel backing plate, after which the heat is distributed to the caliper pistons, brake fluid and the caliber body. Although brake calipers for race use are one-piece monoblocs the caliper body will expand and flex during use at high temperatures and mechanical load from brake pressure. When the bike is raced on the track and the braking system is hot and constantly exposed to various brake pressures, movement and vibrations from the bike and suspension, there is usually no front wheel/discs drag – this can be inspected quickly when the bike returns to the pit lane by lifting the front wheel of the ground and check that the wheel spins freely.

Always a good procedure to “zero” the brake system before going out on track for a new session.

WARPED BRAKE PADS

On circuits (ie GP circuit RedBull Ring) with many subsequent sectors of long hard braking’s from high speed, seeing high temperature and mechanical load to the brake pads. Mechanical stress and tension can occur between the steel backing plate and the friction material which can cause a deformation of the brake pad. Extensive testing within GP and World Superbike of special samples with thicker backing plates or backing plates with special strength properties, special hardening or annealing of backing plate steel has not improved the properties to obtain the perfect and ideal overall mechanical stability of the brake pad.

Experience from 24-hour World Endurance on hard braking LeMans, has shown that thinner steel backplates with more friction material are more resistant to internal mechanical stress and thus backplate deflection. SBS R&D is working intensively on the ideal solution especially for our DS Dual Sinter brake pads to be used for these extreme hard braking circuits and long-distance races.

For normal use of SBS Racing brake pads, it is recommended for all references to change for new brake pads when approximately 2.0 mm of the friction material remains. On circuits with heavy mechanical and thermal load on the brake system and brake pads, it may be an advantage to replace the brake pads earlier to reduce the above described bad habits such as front wheel drag and warped backing plates. On extreme hard braking circuits, we have with great success tested the following minimum thicknesses for brake pads in Racing & High-Performance brake systems:

GP MOTO2 / RED BULL RING / BREMBO: SBS 845 th = 9.6 mm new, change at 7.0 mm, min friction material th = 3.0 mm

WORLD SBK & BSB / IMOLA & DONINGTON / BREMBO: SBS 889 th = 9.5 mm new, change at 7.5 mm, min friction material th = 2.5 mm

BRAKE SYSTEM TEMPERATURES

To be able to identify brake problems or issues experienced from brake performance, it can be a good idea to know in which pressure and temperature range the brake system works on the various circuits. Data logging is used in many championships, in which logging of brake pressure front and rear is becoming standard. Temperature measurement of brake discs, brake pads and calipers with IR or thermocouple sensors, as well as position and travel of brake lever with potentiometer sensor is possible, but not as commonly used as logging of pressure due to class technical rules limiting the number of channels. Many teams use so-called temperature sensitive paint on the outer diameter of the brake discs to indicate in which temperature range the brake pads and brake discs work.

To indicate the temperature range of the brake caliper and brake fluid, self-adhesive temperature stickers can be used on the brake calipers. The most used sticker range is: 88- 127 o C and 132-171 o C. At LeMans and BoldÓr 24 Hours, SBS Racing Service has used 204-260 o C for OEM standard calipers while testing new compounds in Superstock category.

Thermal paint kit is available with the following temperature rate:

GREEN > change to WHITE at 430 o C ORANGE > change to YELLOW at 560 o C RED > change to WHITE at 610 o C

BRAKE PAD SHIMS & SPECIAL PISTONS

In connection with above described font wheel drag issues generated by heat transfer from the brake disc and brake pads, it is possible to reduce the heat that causes brake caliper flex and thus inconsistent brake lever, by using so- called brake pad shims or specially designed brake pistons. Brake pad shims in stainless steel are available and supplied with some OEM standard brake pads. These shims can be used to advantage on the SBS racing brake pads. For race use, brake pad shims are offered by several manufacturers for most types of standard brake calipers in different designs with the main purpose to reduce contact

area and allow a slight air-stream between pistons/steel backing plate and thereby reduce heat transfer into brake caliper and brake fluid.

There are also specially made pistons for standard OEM calipers for race use. Standard OEM calipers with ie aluminum pistons can be advantageously equipped with pistons in stainless steel or titanium to reduce heat transfer. Also available are piston kits with optimized cooling achieved by special design of cooling holes or a so-called “castellated” contact surface again to reduce the contact area between piston and the brake pad.

BRAKE CALIPER AIR DUCTS

Another or additional solution for reducing temperature in the brake caliper and brake fluid is to use so-called brake caliper air ducts, which have gradually become standard with many World Superbike teams. Again, there are many different designs to optimize airflow into the brake caliper around the brake pads.

Brake caliper air ducts are manufactured for the most used standard sportbikes for racing. Most used material is carbon to keep unsprung weight to an absolute minimum.
