Default Disc Brakes and Engines in India

Hi,

Anyone know any manufacturers of disc brakes in India? I am specifically looking for a manufacturer who would provide an NOC for a few sets of disc brakes for use on bikes.

Also, looking for a used Coment 250 engine.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Manas

Hey Argee,

Trying to do something which will be a one-off build, so need a No Objection Cert from the manufacturer to be able to use the parts.

You know anyone at Rane?

Nope; I don't.
I'm still failing to understand the NOC part; from my understanding, the spec on brakes should be states like so much NM of torque, so much heat withstanding & so on. If your build meets that requirement, why not use the brakes?

Also another point, why NOC that too for brakes? And this NOC to be certified by whom? RTO & brake inspector?

Don't mean to dampen your spirits, but I doubt any brake manufacturer would issue such an NOC. Reason? High liability. Considering the primary purpose of braking systems, what's to say of the company's liability in case of an accident (including damage to a third party)? Additionally, you are obviously building a custom vehicle. This exponentially increases the risk factor.

Does the RTO care about such NOCs anyway?

WRT RTO permissions, look up Rizwan's posts from this thread ("Superlite 1200" - Catheram 7 replica (Worli seaface)). Also stop by this thread.
