Brake pad dimensions
Does anybody know where I can find out the dimensions of the friction material on different manufactures brake pads?
The only specs I seem to be able to find is the pad backing plate dimensions, which is obviously needed to know if it will fit in a caliper. But I can't find the face dimensions for any manufacturer.
The reason I ask is because last year I put some mtec rear discs on my Brera and EBC red shift pads. The brake discs were dimpled and grooved with a black coating. However the EBC pad doesn't appear to contact the entire face of the disk. This has left an approx 1cm wide section on the inside edge (by the hub) which hasn't had the black coating rubbed off as the pad isn't in contact with the disc.
It looks unsightly and I would image impacts on performance if the whole face isn't being contacted.
Before I start buying new pads online, I'd like to know if they will contact the whole face, which is difficult without being able to get the dimensions.
Apologies for being long winded. I'll try and post up a picture later to hopefully clarify things.
