Better Brakes = Increased Safety

How many times have you wished your motorcycle had ABS brakes? Did you buy your bike used or were ABS brakes not a factory option when the bike came out? There is good news, you can add a Traction Control Braking (TCB) system to your metric bike. Now you can have the same sure–footedness of an Anti-lock breaking system without a costly retro-fit, saving you time and money. K and G Cycles has these units ready to ship to your door so a safer ride is just a click away. Check out the video to see how it works.(CLICK HERE)

The Traction Control Braking System is exactly that:

inside TCB II and logo*TRACTION: The tire to ground traction is referred to as coefficients of friction, the TCB System helps increase the amount of wheel slip during aggressive braking maneuvers by using different amounts of traction.
*CONTROL: During aggressive braking maneuvers or “panic stops”, the area of the tire that is actually on the ground is less than the size of a postcard on most motorcycles. This small area or contact patch is where you are getting your traction. The TCB unit allows the tire to rotate during these aggressive maneuvers and the driver experiences more control of the vehicle because utilizes more of the tires surface. Without any form of Anti-Lock or TCB System, the wheel is more likely to lock up, and as a resut, the will generally skid out of control.
*BRAKING: Electronic forms of Anti-Lock braking only work at certain minimum speeds by quickly locking and releasing your brakes, but it needs to be noted that ABS still locks your wheels. When your wheels lock at high speeds or when you are on less than desirable road conditions (wet roads, gravel, etc…) this can lead to loss of control. The TCB unit on the other hand works every time you brake and at any speed to help avoid the wheels from locking. Once installed, the TCB becomes an integral part of the brake system it has been applied to.

The TCB Brake System installs in minutes by replacing the banjo-bolt on the Brake Caliper or Master Cylinder. Unlike any other safety product, it works automatically, every time you brake, and at any speed. It works like a “shock absorber” inside the Brake system to help prevent the wheels from locking-up. Wheel lock-up during  emergency or “panic” stops can send your vehicle out of control!

  • TCB10125 Acts like a shock absorber to allow the brake pads to float and/or drag over the rotors natural high and low spots (we are not talking about warped rotors).
  • automatically increases Rider’s ability to brake in a shorter distance in both regular and panic stops (by as much as 20% in a panic stop at speeds from 35 mph to 55 mph).
  • helps modulate your brake system.
  • helps to avoid premature brake lock-up.
  • improves brake control conditions in most cases.
  • unlike electronic ABS the TCB System helps prevent lock-up before it happens.
  • gives you a feeling of more range in your brake levers so you can brake hard with confidence.
  • delivers maximum affect, when installed on both the front and rear brakes by replacing the “Banjo Bolt”.
  • specifically designed for motorcycles and ATV’s without anti-lock brake systems (ABS).
  • will not allow air into your braking system.

TCB Brake System works on motorcycles and ATV’s when an ABS system is not offered from the factory, and costs a fraction of a retro-fit kit if one is even available. TCB Systems are so confident in their product, it even comes with a  “Lifetime Warranty”.
