Compound Description and Characteristics
95: Ramping torque curve with relation to temperature, Good release,
and good modulation.
99: Higher Initial bite than 95 (cold bite) ramping torque curve
similar to 95, Good release and modulation.
01: Higher Initial than 99, Flat torque curve (no rise in torque due
to temperature), Better release than 99 and 95 and better modulation due to
the fact that temperature does not affect torque. This is one of the newest generation and the most advanced race compounds in the PFC range. Slightly higher bite and torque for the first 2/3’s of the stop when compared to 93 and 95 compound. At the end of the stop, 01 compound has less torque scatter for improved modulation with excellent release and a flatter torque curve. Very easy on the discs with very low wear. Can be used both on Stainless and iron discs.
Summary: 99 feels stronger initially than 95 but they both get stronger
deeper into the braking zone. 95 comes in gradually (doesn't surprise you
when you jam on the brakes). 01 is really good for riders who like to trail
brake into the turns because the pressure is the only thing that affects the
braking force. The pad does not grip better or worse due to the
temperature. I personally like the 99 compound but most racers love the 95.
Some of the formula extreme and super bike riders here in the US like the 01
compound. Mostly those are the guys that have really good feel and like
that the pads do not fade or grip harder when they get hot.
As for the availability of the 01 compound.
We only have it in the Brembo
GP Monoblock Calliper (7573.01.11.92) and the Honda Nissin Front Calliper(7533.01.08.92) Yamaha (7520.01.08.92)
1. Use a new disc
2. Alternatively clean disc using scotchbrite material and brake cleaner
ensuring all old brake material has been removed.
1. When new pads are fitted do approximately two laps
2. Then let the pads cool
3. Do another two laps with aggressive braking
4. Then let the pads cool
5. This should then have provided sufficient material transfer for affective braking
