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 cast iron to prevent flexing. 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 5-bolt brake flange configurations, the included mounting brackets are made of heavy-duty ductile iron 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.

Amazing product, Its few and far between that a kit shows up with all the needed parts and accessories, on top of the fact that when you remove the old drum brakes then add these BEEFY dudes on. Wow what a difference. Built like a rock and performs well past expectation. I will be heading to MT ID and Washington and work these things like a dog in the mountains. I have zero worries after install and ride around town 802847

I put disc brakes on my 38 foot 5th wheel travel trailer due to the poor brake quality of the manufacturer. I now drive on the highway with much greater confidence for our safety. The stopping power of these brakes is incredible. The quality of the brakes are superior. I installed them myself finding the instructions accurate and easy to follow. There was a small part missing out of the brake line kit and the part was overnited to me by E Trailer. I have purchased many items from this company and have found the products to be of top quality and fairly priced. The customer service is outstanding. Thank you. 306365

I just received the product. It arrived in excellent shape. I ordered it on Sunday and it arrived today Wednesday Great. I will be installing the brakes on a 16 foot gooseneck dump trailer that is used every day. I'm tired of working on electric brakes. 184180

  • Converting From Drum to Disc Brakes On a 2020 Grand Design Momentum with 7K Axles
    In order to convert the electric drum brakes on a 2020 Grand Design Momentum to hydraulic disc you can indeed use the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit part # K2HR79 which have oil bath lubrication. That said, you will need a list of other components which I have attached for you. Disc Brakes: part # K2HR79 (1 Per Axle) Inner Bearing: part # 25580 (2 Per Axle) Outer Bearing: part # 02475 (2 Per Axle) Seal: part # 9103309 (2 Per Axle) Brake Actuator and Lines: part # CAR-HBA16-2 (1) part # 9579-01...

  • Best 7k Trailer Hub/Drums for Dexter Axle with 1/2 inch Wheel Studs
    I'd recommend the Kodiak kit part # K2HR79 as this fits a Dexter 7k trailer axle, has 1/2 inch diameter wheel studs, and also is Dacromet coated which means it will fight corrosion better than other options as well.

  • What Type of Brake Fluid to Use with Kodiak Brake Assemblies
    Kodiak recommends DOT 3 brake fluid with their brake kits like the # K2HR79 that you referenced. Most applications can easily flush and be filled with a liter or quart so that's what I would grab at your local auto parts store.

  • Can I Use HR79 Brake Assembly with 02475 OB if Fifth Wheel has 14125A Bearings and a #42 Spindle
    I reached out to my contact at Kodiak and they advised me that the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit 7,000 lbs # K2HR712D takes ½” studs only. When you go to 9/16” studs, the 7k axle kit # K2HR79DS comes with an 8K hub that takes that only takes the # 02475 bearing. Because you cannot fit 9/16” or 5/8” studs in a 7K hub Kodiak switches it to a 8 K hub. The 6K, 7K, and 8K spindle is the same spindle, the only difference is the outer bearing changes.

  • Disc Brake Kit Recommendation for a Dexter 7,000 D-70 Trailer Axle
    I did some checking and your Dexter D-70 axles have the number 42 spindle on them which is what the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR79 that you referenced is designed to fit so it would work well for you. You will need to supply new bearings though. For that you would want the part # 25580 for the inner bearing and part # 02475 for the outer bearing. You should note that this outer bearing will be different from the one you pull out of your current hubs. Everything else will match right...

  • Oil Bath Seals for Kodiak Disc Brake Kit for 7K Axles and 8 on 6-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    Yes, using oil bath hub seals # 10-63 will work with the Kodiak disc brake kit you ordered, # K2HR79E. The kit already has the oil caps so you wouldn't need those. The brake kit does not include the bearings. You would need 2 of # 25580 and 2 of # 02475.

  • How Long to Set Aside for Installing Disc Brake Kit on Trailer
    I'd set aside a day to pull off the install of disc brakes on your trailer like with the # K2HR79. It's not an overly complicated process at all. I attached an install video for this for you to check out to get an idea what you'd be getting into.

  • Recommended Disc Brake Hub Kit To Use With Kodiak XL ProLube Kit
    The Kodiak XL ProLube Kit, part # XLPROLUBE2440KIT is not a fit on the # K2HR712 disc brake kit you mentioned because the hub is not threaded on the # K2HR712. I do have a solution that will work for you. I recommend part # K2HR79. This kit will fit the same size spindle, has threaded hubs which will work with the lube kit, and is rated for the same size wheels as the # K2HR712. The only difference is the size of the wheel bolts. The # K2HR79 has 9/16-inch bolts, where the # K2HR712...

  • Recommended Disc Brake Conversion Kit for 2020 Grand Design Momentum with Triple Axle
    I have a solution for you, but unfortunately the # K2HR79 cannot accept 1/2" wheel studs. In order to convert from electric brakes to disc brakes with an oil bath, that will also allow you to use your current 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern with 1/2" studs you'll want to use the Dexter Disc Brake Kit # K71-694-695-11.

  • Will the Kodiak Electric Brake Kit Fit on the Timberen Axle-Less Systems
    The Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR79 will fit on the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System # TASR7KS01 as both are rated for the same weight capacity of 7,000 lbs. and have the same bearing inner diameters. The bearings and grease seal are not included with the Kodiak Disk Brake Kit, you will need to buy these separately.
