Jabiru J230D 2017 Brake Fade

Postby Alanopilota » Fri Nov 22, 2019 9:16 pm

Hi, I have a 2017 Jabiru J230D that I have put 120 hrs on from when I bought it new in 2017.

I would like to improve the braking performance ...I gather it’s a well known problem !

Is it possible to get a dual piston Calliper and bigger brake pads ?

What do people do to get around this problem ?

Hiya Alanopilot,

There are improved brake pads available which are made of a softer material and are far more effective. Follow link for details on another form ...
