Brembo Issues Recall on Brake Pads for Reduced Braking
Manufacturing issues highlighted that could compromise quality
Brembo brakes have become the go-to for performance brake parts—any four and two-wheel vehicle with spirited aspirations will most likely receive a set of shiny Brembos with flashy calipers. Owners of motorcycles fitted with Brembos will have to get their mechanics hat on or pay a visit to their favorite garage to have the pads checked though, since Brembo has issued a recall on one of their series.
Brake pad supplier Federal Mogul Italia has advised Brembo that a batch of their pads' quality might have been compromised because of a technical problem that occurred during the manufacturing process.
The brakes from batch #672 could provide less efficient braking, which in turn could put the rider's safety at risk. To avoid any tragedies, Brembo has decided to recall the entire batch.
Brakes from batch #672 are concerned.

Owners of bikes fitted with Brembo-branded brake kits should check the pads for batch number 672. If the brake is indeed identified as being part of the faulty batch, or if the number cannot be read, Brembo invites you to contact one of their distributors to receive the replacement parts.
