I have a 15000# triple axle boat trailerI saw that etrailer was running a special on 225ss kodiak calipers and seeing as mine are 16 years old and i put new rotors on last year its time! I called in my order on a weds and they were here mo nday noon ! I was impressed! I saved close to $[xx] and i was sure icould handle it myself ok! Im 75 lol. Took roughly 3 1/2 hours i just tested everything and it was easy and works perfect! Go etrailer

I originally bought these brakes a year ago. Recently I had an issue , I called and spoke with Madeline to explain the situation. She could not have been more helpful and understanding. My replacement parts arrived today and I am back in business. What a pleasant experience , I wish all my employees were as helpful and willing to do what the customer needs as Madeline was. Well done, thank you.

  • Recommended Replacement Stainless Steel Caliper for Kodiak 225 Series with 12 Inch Rotors
    I spoke with my contact at Kodiak and was able to confirm that the Disc Brake Caliper - Stainless Steel # KDBC225S will work perfectly with your existing Kodiak 225 Series with 12 inch rotors. He also stated that you can use your existing bolts without modification but he does recommend using the two new bolts that will come included with the caliper. They should be torqued down to 45 ft-lbs. The stainless steel caliper does include the ceramic brake pads along with an oversize, stainless...

  • Will Kodiak Stainless Steel Brake Calipers Fit a 2011 EZ Loader Trailer EZB17-20 3100
    You could most likely use Kodiak stainless steel calipers. However they have different options depending on the trailer capacity. For 9K to 10K use # KDBC338SS For 7K to 8K use # KDBC250S For 3.5K to 6K use # KDBC225S

  • Can Kodiak Stainless Steel Disc Brake Calipers be Used to Replace Calipers on EZ Loader Boat Trailer
    If you have existing Kodiak calipers on your EZ Loader Trailer, then a stainless steel option like the Kodiak # KDBC225S for 3,500 to 6,000 pound axles will work great as a replacement. The stainless steel construction on this unit is ideal for extended marine use and features a 1,000-hour salt-spray rating. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product that you can also check out.

  • Parts Needed to Upgrade the Dacromet Calipers of # K2HR526D to Stainless Steel Calipers
    All you would need to replace the dacromet calipers of the Disc Brake kit part # K2HR526D that you have on your trailer would be the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper # KDBC225S that you referenced. This is an identical caliper as what you currently have except it is made of stainless steel.

  • Rebuild Kit for Kodiak Stainless Steel Calipers Model 225 on a Boat Trailer
    The rebuild kit you need for your Kodiak stainless steel calipers is part # DBC-225-KIT. It will come with everything you need except the casting.

  • Kodiak Disc Brake 225 Caliper Rebuild Kit
    While there is not a manual or video available for the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper Rebuild Kit # KDBC225KIT I did find an expanded drawing of the parts of Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper # KDBC225S which should help so you can see how the pieces fit. The rebuild kit will require you have a 5/16" Allen wrench or 1/2" hex tool and comes with the following parts, which are numbered on the diagram so you can see exactly where they go on the caliper. - Replacement Stainless Steel Piston # K225PS...

  • Recommended Suspension And Brake Upgrade For 2019 Forest River Sabre 32DPT W/ Tandem 5200lb axles
    I have another suggestion, but I don't think changing the axles wheels will have the added benefit you are looking for. Moving from 5200lb axles to 7000lb or 8000lb and heavier duty leaf springs will actually cause a rougher ride due to springs being stiffer than needed for the weight of your 2019 Forest River Sabre 32dpt. There is also not a kit to complete this change, and it will be pretty involved and costly. Going overkill on suspension usually leads to more negatives than positives,...

  • Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper Replacement Parts
    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...

  • Recommended Spare Parts To Replace UFP Hubs With Rotors And Calipers
    We don't have the UFP Brand, but I can give you some compatible parts. For your trailer hubs with rotor, I recommend the Kodiak 10" Hub-and-Rotor Assembly - 5 on 4-1/2 - Dacromet - 3,500 lbs # KHR10D. You will need grease seal # RG06-050 along with bearing # L68149 and # L44649. For your brakes, I recommend the Kodiak Ceramic Brake Pads w/Stainless Steel Backing Plate - 3,500 lbs to 6,000 lbs # K225CPSS along with the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper - Stainless Steel - 3,500 lbs to 6,000...

  • Replacement Parts for 2006 Marine Master Tandem Trailer
    I did some research on your 2006 Marine Master Tandem Axle Trailer and found some of the UFP part lists. Dexter owns that company as well as the Kodiak line, so the parts are extremely similar with different part numbers that should work very well as replacements. I recommend the Kodiak Ceramic Brake Pads - 3,500 lbs to 6,000 lbs # K225CP along with the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper - Stainless Steel - 3,500 lbs to 6,000 lbs # KDBC225S. Then for your bearings and seals, I recommend...

  • What Size Fittings Does Kodiak 225 Caliper Take
    Sounds like you are trying to install the wrong brake line to the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper # KDBC225S that you mentioned. The fitting size needs to be 3/16 inch like what comes with the # 18TA-BLKIT. Since I don't know what brake lines you have now it's hard for me to verify that you have the right thing.

  • Can Dot 5 Brake Fluid Be Used with Rebuilt Kodiak 225 Brake Calipers?
    The Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper 3,500 lbs to 6,000 lbs # KDBC225S and similar finishes will require the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper Rebuild Kit for 3,500 lb to 6,000 lb Trailer Brakes # KDBC225KIT which will give you all the seals, bolts, bushings, and piston needed. Once rebuilt the system can use Dot 5 brake fluid but only after removing all previous fluid and flushing the system. Dot 5 is not compatible with Dot 3 or 4 so a complete flush or new parts are required. I also recommend...

  • How to Convert a Kodiak Over-the-Hub Brake Kit to a Stainless Kit for a 3,500 lb Axle
    For a stainless steel caliper to match what you currently have you would want the part # KDBC225S. For the stainless rotor with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern, part # KR10S. For the stainless mounting bracket part # KCMB10RS. All of these components have the same dimensions as your current setup so they would clear your 13 inch rim.

  • Replacement Parts Available for Kodiak Disc Brake Kit K2R35D
    Yes, replacement parts are available for Kodiak disc brake kit # K2R35D. For calipers you can use # KDBC225DAC for dacromet or # KDBC225S for stainless steel. Both come in quantities of 1 and are for 3,500 to 6,000 pound axle Kodiak disc brake kits. For brake pads you can use # K225CP for Kodiak disc brake kits for 3,500 to 6,000 pound axles. There is also a rebuild kit, # KDBC225KIT. For a rotor (this kit has rotors that fit over idler hubs) you can use # KR10D for dacromet...

  • Will a Kodiak 250 Disc Brake Caliper Fit in Place of a Kodiak 225 Caliper
    You should not have any problem fitting the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper, # KDBC250S, in place of the # KDBC225S. The major difference is the piston size (1/4 larger on the 250). The 225 is designed for 3,500 to 6,000 pound axles whereas the 250 is designed for 7,000 to 8,000 pound axles. If the actuator you are using is not rated high enough then it could have problem pushing the piston to apply the brakes.

  • Recommended Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper Re-Build Kit
    We offer two caliper re-build kits for Kodiak disc brake systems. You will select yours based on axle rating. You can see both on the linked page, kit # KDBC225KIT that you referenced which is for brakes on 3500- to 6000-lb axles, such as # KDBC225S, and the other part # KDBC250KIT which is for brakes on axles rated at 7K- or 8K-lbs, such as # KDBC250S.

  • Parts Needed to Add a Third Brake Axle to a Trailer
    To tee into your current brake setup you would need the part # T0778500. This would need to get added to the main brake feed line of your trailer. From there you would want to use a single axle trailer brake line kit like the part # DM5402. Basically everything from this kit would get used minus the long brake line. Basically the tee that you add in will go to the new brake assemblies and then using a flex line like part # BH-3MFS-1 back to the original axle lines. For stainless rotors...
