I ordered new Kodiak 225 caliper to replace the frozen one on my boat trailer, which I use in Puget sound area. The part came as advertised, quick delivery no hassel no problems. I upgraded to a more salt resistant caliper. Use stainless if you can afford it Etrailer service outstanding 206592

I ordered Dakota 225 brake caliper. It worked as it should. The problem is that I had bought two calipers and two rotors 3 years ago from E trailer and installed them. They worked but on seized up (would not release from the rotor) and overheated. I had to place the overide pin in my surge actuator and drive tow the boat and trailer . I would think the caliper would last more than three years with less than 25 trips to the lake. 529597

This is actually the second time I purchased one of these calipers. The first time was about a month back when one froze on me due to water in the brake system. Of course this happened the day before I was going on vacation. While very happy with the quality of the caliper it was the customer service that was most impressive. I called in a panic in the early afternoon to see if I could get the part overnight. The sales consultant went way beyond what he could have done and hand delivered my order to shipping department so it would get out yet that day. My point here is that you can buy good parts anywhere on the web these days but the reason I came back and will keep coming back was the service I got (get) from eTrailer's employees. That extra effort allowed me to leave on time for vacation with my family. Oh and yeah Kodiak makes good stuff. Everything installed well and is working great. Thank you! 411520

I bought these for my '05 Mastercraft (Reliable) trailer. They were a direct replacement for the originals. They came loaded with new pads and will fit either side. All the fittings were already installed and new mounting bolts were included which made installing them quick and easy. Great product at a great price. 633147

by:

The caliper arrived later in the day but I managed to install it and get a guy to help me bleed the lines before he went home. Kodiak brakes are the best. I have noticed pad separation in the last pair of pads I had to replace; but I believe that is from the heat from the stuck caliper. 629278

Ask the Experts about this Kodiak Accessories and Parts

  • What Rotor Sizes Does Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper Fit
    The Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper - Dacromet - 3,500 lbs to 6,000 lbs # KDBC225DAC is only designed to fit 10" or 12" rotors, and it looks like the Tie Down 46304 may be for 9.6" rotors, so the fit may be off due to that. There isn't any type of new mounting bracket available, and the best option we have is for you to get a new hub and rotor assembly, as we don't carry Tie Down parts and this may not be an exact fit otherwise. For that you need to know the weight rating of your axle, your...

  • Replacement Calipers for Kodiak 225 Calipers on 3500-lbs Axles
    Yes. You could use the Titan # 225CAL to replace your Kodiak 225 calipers, but we do have the direct Kodiak replacement calipers available with part # KDBC225DAC

  • Replacement Reliable CL-1000 Calipers for Hydroglide Trailer
    Based on my research, the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper # KDBC225DAC should work perfectly as a replacement for the existing Reliable CL-1000 Calipers on your trailer. This hasn't been officially tested by the manufacturer but based on the specs they appear to be an exact match. They are designed for 3,500 to 6,000 pound rated axles and work on 10 and 12" diameter rotors. I have also attached an image of a customer-submitted review that describes using these to replace original Reliable...

  • Bolts and Bracket for the Tie Down Caliper to Kodiak Caliper
    The caliper bracket you are looking for is the Replacement Mounting Bracket # KCMB12D which is compatible with the 5 bolt mounting flange you have as well as the 225 Kodiak Dacromet calipers you have as well. Then for a bolt kit you'd want the # BRKH12 and you'd be set. This comes with enough bolts to attach to brackets.

  • Recommended Replacement for Reliable CL 1000 Calibers
    I have a solution for you, however, we do not carry a direct replacement for Reliable brake components. I recommend one of the Kodiak disc Brake Kits, like # K2HR526D. This kit includes 2- 12" brake rotors with 6 on 5-1/2 inch wheel bolt pattern and 5 bolt brake flanges for 5,200 to 6,000 lbs axles. This disc brake kit will work with 14-1/2,15, and 16 inch wheels. Checking the wheel bearing numbers will confirm which kit will work with your axle spindles. This kit uses # 25580 for...

  • Bleeding Trailer Brakes After Installing Kodiak 225 Disc Brake Calipers
    When you bleed the brakes on your trailer after installing the Kodiak Calipers # KDBC225DAC, you will want to start with the brake that is furthest away from the actuator. Of the two bleeder valves, you will want to use the bleeder valve that is on the top. If you are manually bleeding the brakes, it is easiest to use a clear jar to collect the brake fluid in so it is easier to see when there are no more bubbles in the fluid. Be sure to open the top bleeder valve when you are bleeding...

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Slip On Rotor, Caliper and Brake Line for Trailer
    Sounds like you have an over-the-hub style of disc brake setup on your trailer. To pick out the correct replacement rotors will require you to measure the diameter of the rotors you currently have and know the bolt pattern of the hubs as well. With that info you can check out the link I attached to see all of the over the hub rotors we offer. To pick out the correct replacement caliper will require you to know the brand of your current brakes so that I can pick you out the correct one....

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Brake Calipers for a Boat Trailer
    To replace the calipers on your boat trailer you will need to know the weight capacity for the axle that is on the boat trailer and the brand of the calipers. A very common brand is the Kodiak calipers, typically they will have 225 stamped on the caliper as well like the # KDBC225DAC. This system would work on axles that range from 3,500 lbs to 6,000 lbs. If you need a different caliper check out the link I attached that will take you to a page that has all of the calipers we offer....

  • Replacement Brake Calipers for EZ Loader TIAB 27-31
    I contacted EZ Loader and got some information on your trailers. They could narrow down that you have 12 inch rotors, but they could be from two different manufacturers, Kodiak or UFP. If you have Kodiak rotors, then Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper - Dacromet - 3,500 lbs to 6,000 lbs, # KDBC225DAC, are the right replacement calipers. If they are the UFP, then I won't have the calipers you need if we stay with factory parts. If you do not have Kodiak and want to make the switch, I can help...

    The Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper, part # KDBC225DAC, are designed for 3,500 to 6,000 axles and will work with 10 to 12 inch diameter rotors.

  • Solution for Needing Replacement UFP 3,500 lb Axle Calipers
    Best option we have will be an all new hub/rotor setup that comes with matching calipers to replace your DB-35 UFP since we do not carry the UFP brand and other brand calipers won't fit. For a replacement Kodiak Brake Kit, the part # K2HR35D should be the correct assemblies. This kit includes 2 Dacromet-plated, 10 inch hub-and-rotor assemblies, calipers, and mounting brackets. They are designed for 3,500 axles like what you have and will perform the best.

  • Replacement Disc Brake Caliper for Reliable CL-1000
    The specs listed for the # KDBC225DAC Kodiak caliper I found online match up with those of the Reliable CL-1000. Either would be compatible with a 3500 to 6000 lb axle but because it hasn't been officially tested, If I were in your shoes I'd replace both calipers to ensure you're getting the exact same braking on each side for the sake of safety. We don't have a rebuild kit known to be compatible with the Reliable CL-1000 caliper.

  • Replacement Brake Caliper Recommendation for a Boat Trailer
    The correct replacement calipers for your 2003 Mastercraft boat trailer will depend on the current brakes you have installed on your trailer to a certain extent. I attached a page that has all of the brake calipers we offer for you to check out. The easiest way would be to find the same brand as you currently have. We have Kodiak, Dexter, and Titan calipers at the link I attached. If you can't find what you need email me back and I will see if there is a different setup I could recommend...

  • How to Determine Right Hand and Left Hand Brake For Disc Brake Caliper Installation
    Yes, you would look at the trailer from the rear to determine right hand or left hand. The terms right hand and left hand come from right turn and left turn. The right hand brake is on the right side as if you were making a right turn. The Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper, # KDBC225DAC, can be used on either side. Kodiak designed the caliper so that there are multiple bleeder valves allowing you to switch them depending on which side you need the caliper on. .

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Disc Brakes that Won't Activate Although Actuator Moves Fluid
    First step I would try is bleeding the brakes. It sounds like you have an air bubble that needs to just be worked out of the lines and then the brakes should start working again. I attached a help article on bleeding trailer brakes too. First top off the master cylinder with appropriate fluid. Next you will want to pump the fluid from the master cylinder. You can do this by unbolting the plate that holds the lever in place and then use that lever to actuate the master cylinder and...

  • Which Brake Assembly to Start with When Bleeding Trailer Hydraulic Brakes
    Sounds like your question is related to the trailer brake bleeding process where you are supposed to pick the assembly that is the furthest from the actuator to start with. Basically if you have more than one trailer axle you pick the rear-most axle and then start with the assemblies there. Once you've bled either assembly on that axle you then move to the one in front of it. Of the two bleeder valves, you will want to use the bleeder valve that is on the top. That's because air bubbles...

  • What Axle Capacities Does the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper # KDBC225SBE Fit
    The Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper # KDBC225DAC that you referenced is designed to be a replacement for both the 2k and 3.5k capacity disc brake kits. So in this case there would be no difference.

  • Correct Replacement Brake Pads for Dexter 225 Calipers
    The correct brake pads you'll need for the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper part # KDBC225DAC (225) which is made by Dexter is the Kodiak Ceramic Brake Pads part # K225CP. Please note, the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper is offered in a few different finishes so don't be alarmed if yours looks a bit different.

  • Will Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper Work With Trailer Surge Brake System
    The Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper # KDBC225DAC is designed to be used with a surge brake system so yes, it will work with your trailer setup. Just make sure that your axle is rated for 3,500 - 6,00 lbs,that your rotor diameter is 10" or 12", and that the caliper mounting flange bolt holes measure 5-3/4" on center where the caliper will be installed.

    The Kodiak 225 calipers # KDBC225S fit 3,500 lb 10 inch assemblies as well as 12 inch rotors up to 5,200 lbs. The 204 calipers fit 3,500 lb axles with 10 inch assemblies. The 225 calipers are more prominent than the 204 calipers but they are not directly interchangeable. I reached out to my contact at Dexter (who bought out Kodiak) and he said the mounting locations are slightly different and the piston size is different with the 204 model being roughly a 2 inch diameter piston and the...

  • Troubleshooting Surface Rust on Trailer Brake Rotors
    Theoretically if you just have some surface rust on your rotors it would be knocked off after a drive that included a couple solid braking events. If you still notice rust on the rotors after towing the trailer then this could indeed be an indication that there's an issue with the brakes or simply that the rust you found is a bit deeper than surface level. If the rotors are badly rusted then your best option is just to replace them completely. I have attached a link that will take you...

  • Replacement Parts for Wheels and Disc Brakes Getting Too Hot on Boat Trailer
    A stuck caliper will absolutely cause the brakes/hubs to heat up like you described as it's going to be constantly engaged during travel even when you aren't hitting the brakes. This is the most likely cause of the excessive heat so it's definitely where I recommend starting. We do have a large selection of replacement caliper parts available such as the Kodiak # KDBC225DAC, which I have linked below, however I'm unable to track down the exact brand or capacity for the rotors used on...

For this assembly you will need the bearing kit # Bearing Kit # BK3-100. For your grease caps you will need # RG04-060 which come in sets.
