Kodiak disc brake diagram

Disc Brakes

More and more people are switching their trailers over to disc brakes, and with good reason. Disc brakes deliver consistent braking - even at highway speeds - unlike drum brakes, which often show a substantial drop in braking torque at higher speeds. In addition, disc brakes offer a substantially shorter stopping distance than drum brakes. Disc brake calipers have only one moving part, rather than the many found in drum brakes. This means that there are fewer parts to maintain, fewer parts to get damaged and fewer parts to have to repair or replace, thus reducing maintenance costs.


Integral Hub-and-Rotor Assemblies

The integral hub-and-rotor is made from cast iron, matching SAE specifications. Cast iron is ideal for high-temperature operations and offers a favorable friction coefficient to ensure adequate stopping power. Kodiak's rotors are vented to effectively dissipate heat, dramatically reducing the incidence of heat-related damage. Furthermore, machined disc brakes minimize the chance of contamination between the hub and rotor, resulting in excellent performance and long life.


Calipers

Kodiak calipers are constructed of stainless steel to prevent flexing and rust. Less flex means more braking torque, resulting in smooth, even braking every time. The corrosion-resistant stainless steel piston is 30 percent larger than standard pistons, ensuring shorter stopping distance and increased torque. In addition, the unique low-drag design of Kodiak's calipers allows the piston to retract farther than in most standard models, giving you a cooler-running brake.


Mounting Brackets

Designed for axles with 4-bolt brake flange configurations, the included mounting brackets are made of heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant dacromet that is embossed to provide additional threading for guide bolts. The added thread strength ensures a tighter, more secure connection between the caliper and bracket. Another unique feature of Kodiak's brackets is the side-support angle, which guarantees that the load is carried by the bracket, rather than the bolts.

Very pleased with the service and quality of product. Placed order on Monday and received on Friday enabling me to complete the installation over the weekend. All components were shipped and installation was very smooth. Time will tell how the Dacromet resists corrosion. I also ordered the rubber break line kit, replacing everything from the master cylinder back (tandem axles). Would have preferred to keep the oil bath hubs vs going back to grease and bearing buddies. This is my 4th trailer and the oil bath hubs were superior. No leaks/seal failure in 5 years of use.

Everything arrived as expected. Worked perfectly on my Champion 190DCR trailer, replacing the factory disc rotors, calipers and pads.

The stainless steel calipers look great. nice finish. Rotors are well made. One suggestion to the manufacture, chamfer the seal pocket, it would make installing the seal much easier.

The Kodiak brake kit was delivered intact. When installing it , i found that you can not install this brake set on a Road King aluminum I bean trailer. the calipers will hit the frame rails. no matter where i put the caliper, unless all the way on the bottom, which isnt good . So i will have to eat this purchase. Installed the tiedown stuff that wont last 2 years in salt water. I wish there was some information about the Kodiak system needing more clearence between the caliper and the frame.I rated it a good for its not the problem of the brake manufacturer, but the trailer manufacturer for spacing the wheels so close to the frame.


Comments
I just spoke to my contact at Kodiak about the clearance issue you have and he informed me that as long as your bleed the brakes with the bleeder valve pointed up you could then install the calipers in the 6:00 position and they would work just fine.

I did sellinstall this brake set on a loadrite trailer and there was plenty of clearence, As stasted before , the road king trailer that i was trying to install this set of brakes on didnt have the clearence needed. The caliper would contact the frame as the suspetion would travel. As with all factory rep replies it allways seems to be the installers fault that it will not work. I bet that rep dosent have 40 years of repair service under his belt. After that coment on the 6 oclock position, yeah it would work but who wants the have the caliper on the bottom? Typical for a factory rep. Add and inch to the axel on each side and things would clear just fine.

I can't say enough good things about the staff at etrailer. They helped me pick out the correct items to install disc brakes on my boat trailer and the technical staff was extremely helpful in helping me better understand how to perform the installation. This was the first time I ever install a new brake system and their help enabled me to easily and successfully complete the installation. A+ for the product quality and for etrailer staff!

Recently I decided to put new hub/rotors and SS caliper on my trailer that has double torsion axels. I knew that the old ones were Kodiak 10" hubs and calipers. Found etrailer online and compared prices and shipping charges. Found them to the best. Online system was easy to use and placed the order. A few days later I received the parts. I had ordered a hub/rotor combination but one set was accidently shipped as a rotor only. It was an honest mistake since the park numbers were almost identical. Called them up and sent some photos and a few days later I had the new kit and I sent the other ones back with the USP shipping label that they sent me. Nice people and easy to work with. I will order my next trailer parts from them as well!

I am having issue's with this product. When I mounting the first one I could not get the caliper mounted and later found out the mounting plate had a bolt hole that was not threaded from the factory. I talked to Caleb and in less than 2 days I had a replacement in my hand. Caleb spent a great deal of time making sure I got it and fast. Caleb helped me a lot with my install. The other issue I am currently dealing with is the outside brake pad is rubbing the face of the rotor on both of the left side axles. I am going to call Kodiak today for suggestions. I will be buying all my stuff from Etrailer because IF you do have a issue one phone call to them and they will take care of it. THANK YOU Caleb

This product worked great. I'm so glad there is a kit that has all this together. The hoses are much higher quality than what I took off the trailer. I wish there had been an option to pay a little more to get stainless clamps as I launch in salt water 90% of the time. I will buy this kit again when the time comes.

I've never changed brakes before and this was way easier than I thought it would be (the hardest part was getting the old rusted calipers off the trailer). I did end up needing to order new grease seals. I can't imagine why I would reuse old grease seals on new hubs, so I'd recommend that you order these with the package (and recommend that eTailer include them, or at least suggest that you should order them).

These are a great upgrade from the rusty, frozen tie down brakes my trailer came with. The instructions are good and the product was fairly easy to install.

  • Boat Trailer with Disc Brakes on Front Axle Slamming Back and Forth when Stopping
    It sounds like your boat trailer simply does not have quite enough stopping power when you are applying the brakes from your tow vehicle. This will certainly result in the back and forth slamming/jerking you are experiencing. I do recommend adding disc brakes to the rear axle of your trailer. Doing this should greatly reduce these symptoms. In order to choose the right disc brake assembly for your trailer, you will need to know the axle capacity, wheel bolt pattern and the part numbers...

  • Comparing the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR35DS with a Tie Down G5 Disc Brake Kit
    Do you currently have a disc brake kit? If it was that badly damaged within a year then you either got a bad set of brakes, something was installed incorrectly, or you have an issue on your trailer that needs to be fixed. The Kodiak kit # K2HR35DS comes with a 3-year warranty so if it was a product defect I would cash-in on that warranty. Since we don't carry the Tie Down G5 disc brake kit it is a little difficult to compare them side-by-side, but one of the major things that I noticed...

  • Replacing Tie Down Disk Brakes with Kodiak Disk Brakes for a Tie Down 3,500 lb Spindle
    The spindles you have on your trailer are the same dimensionally as the standard 84 spindle so we have disc brake kits that will fit the spindles/axles. I confirmed this by checking with Tie Down. The Kodiak disc brake kit part # K2HR35DS that you referenced would fit perfectly as it is designed for the same spindle dimensions as what you have.

  • Disc Brake Kit Recommendation for 1998 Mastercraft Single Axle Trailer Model SS 19
    Your bearing numbers mean you have a standard 3,500 lb trailer axle so for a disc brake kit you'd want the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR35DS for just the hub/rotors, mounting brackets, and calipers. Or if you wanted a kit that included a surge actuator and brake lines plus what was mentioned earlier you'd want the part # T4843300.

I recommend the Kodiak disc brake kit # K2HR35DS because it will have stainless steel calipers and 2 corrosion resistant dacromet plated hub and rotor assemblies.

  • Easy Way to Determine if Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR35DS Fits Trailer
    Does your trailer have 3,500 lb axles on it? If so, then yes the # K2HR35DS would fit and work well. One quick way to determine this is to measure the diameter of the axles. If that dimension is 2-3/8 inches then you do have a 3,500 lb axle and the # K2HR35DS is a confirmed fit. If you have a different dimension axle email me back and I'll see what we have that would fit.

    If you have 13 inch wheels on your trailer, then the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K1HR35S unfortunately, can not be used with 13 inch wheels.
