What makes a good motorcycle braking system? Obviously, it needs to be able to stop your bike when you need it to, but that’s not the only factor. A quality braking system should be fast and reliable no matter the weather conditions or how much wear and tear your bike has. It should be lightweight (meaning has a low unsprung weight) for more agility and better traction on the bike. A lower cost with more value for money isn’t a bad thing either. If you want the best performance you can get from your bike, we definitely recommend Performance Machine brakes and components.

Your brakes are essentially controlled by a pumping system. Pumping on a brake lever pushes force through an incompressible liquid to calliper pistons, which puts pressure on the brake pads. There are several precise parts involved in making sure your brakes work properly. And if you’ve ever known the sheer terror of your brakes failing, you’ll know how important it is to make sure they keep working as they should.

Are you wondering how Performance Machine fits into the picture? A leading manufacturer of top-of-the-line brake systems and accessories, Performance Machine, are advocates for the freedom, individualism and creativity of the custom bike parts scene.

What are Performance Machine Brakes?

Founded by Perry Sands in 1970, Performance Machine began in a small shop in Paramount, California. The company started making custom motorcycles before moving into custom brake systems and after-market front ends in 1972. A few years later, it began making custom wheels and refining its braking systems.

Since then, Performance Machine has become a leader in the motorcycle industry, creating the innovative Custom Cut wheel finish and developing its own state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, among other triumphs throughout the years. To make sure the standards remained high, Performance Machine kept everything, including design, testing and manufacturing, in-house. In 2021, with more than 50 years of experience under its belt, Performance Machine moved into the off-road market.

Performance Machine doesn’t simply make good brakes; the brand sets standards in the industry for quality and innovation. The team creates custom bike parts that allow you to show off your sense of style while ensuring you’ll turn heads on a busy street. All of this is backed up by a strong design and sense of engineering.

For the past five decades, Performance Machine has been dedicated to taking their customer’s feedback on board and providing the best brakes, brake solutions and brake accessories money can buy. Now you can experience their variety and passion for performance for yourself by buying your Performance Machine brakes from Taverner.
