The braking power however is second to none. The combination of the caliper with its massive four pistons and the large diameter brake disc (220 mm) gives a second to none braking power.
The Antidive system adds this and as the name suggests the diving of the front end on braking is an issue of the past.
All CNC parts are machined from billet in Germany. The total quality of the item leaves nothing to be desired.
The brake unit comes pre-assembled to make you the final assembly easier. It is pre-assembled only, because most of the drum brakes will be painted to be matched to the colour or colour scheme of your Lambretta. The original speedo drive is used with this kit. All needed small parts are included. The oil seals and bearings are of European origin (like FAG or SKF for instance).
The threads of the drum are reinforced.

If you fit Antidive disc brakes to disc brake forklinks these are a straight fit. On all drum link fork links the pivot on the RHS needs to be cutted away. Otherwise the Antidive system will not work.
The Antidive leg should sit at an angle of 90° to the fork.
With some aftermarket rims (especially tubeless ones) there won’t be space between the wheel rim and the caliper. Here you normally can take material off the brake caliper for enough clearance. The tyre size shouldn’t be larger than 3.50-10.
