Kodiak Rotor 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.


Over-the-Hub Rotor

Kodiak's slip-on, stainless steel rotor makes it easy to convert an idler axle to a disc brake axle. Simply place the rotor over your hub. It is most often wheel bolt piloted for a loose fit and then held in place by the wheel itself. With a separate rotor and hub, you can easily repair or replace one element of your brake system without having to junk the whole thing.


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 stainless steel 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.

Video Transcript for Kodiak Disc Brake Kit Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Kodiak line of Disc Brake Kits. Now, these kits are available in multiple configurations to fit multiple size axles. They're also available in several different finishes.A disc brake kit like this one from Kodiak is an excellent solution to give us good braking force. Typically, for this kit anyway, you're looking at like a 3500-pound axle. A lot of boat applications, you're hauling a boat sometimes miles and miles and miles, and without brakes on your trailer, you put a lot of unnecessary stress and strain on your truck. A braking kit like this allows us to take the stress, the strain off the braking system on our truck but also gives us a safer ride.In this application we've got a surge coupler at the front of the trailer, so as the truck slows it applies the hydraulic fluid pressure, squeezing our caliper together giving us excellent stopping abilities.

The rotors, calipers, and the ceramic pads are all automotive grade, so they're going to be made to the highest standards being sure we get excellent braking capabilities.Now when we compare a disc brake kit like this to a hydraulic drum-style brake, there are several advantages. Of course, we all know disc brakes tend to work better than drum brakes. They lock up less. We typically don't have the moisture being held inside. Especially in a marine application, that hub fills up with water, that moisture stays inside, causes some corrosion issues.

In this situation, once we bring these out of the water, everything's going to drain away. Air can get to it very readily and dry everything up.Another advantage we're going to get with this particular kit over the other disc brake kits available, the material composition is very corrosion-resistant. Our rotor, caliper, all stainless steel, plus they take that a step further, put a Dacramet finish all the way around. So that's going to work out really well, especially in a marine application like this, but also just on a utility trailer, keeping everything nice, corrosion-free. It's also going to be an excellent, excellent choice if you use it in a saltwater-type application.Something else you'll notice, pretty common on automobile applications, not usually on trailers, is going to be the ventilated rotor here.

So you've got two wear surfaces here and here. Those are going to be separated to allow air to flow freely in there and get everything cooled off to give us premium braking performance every time we hit those brakes.All right. With the bracket installed, we can move onto installing our rotor. That's one of the big benefits I like about this kit. You don't have the whole disc with the hub assembly in it.

So if you ever need to replace the disc, you're just replacing the disc, not your entire hub. This is going to fit right on our idler hub just like that, very common on automobile applications. They call this more like a top hat rotor where it it slides over your lugs, and then your wheel is actually going to hold that in and flush.Next, we'll move on to getting our caliper installed. Now the calipers can go either side. You don't have to have a left and a right. You can see we've got a bleeder screw on both sides. We want, of course, for our hydraulic connection to be facing in. Our slide bolts are going to come in this way just like that, and then these two portions are going to go on the back side of our bracket. So we slide that over, bring it in, and then we'll just push our bolts in, line them up with our holes and get them started. Now those do have loctite on them, so you'll just get them started a little bit, and then we'll use a 13mm socket and snug them on down.Now that we've got those snugged down, we'll use our torque wrench and we're going to torque them down to the specifications listed in the instructions. With our brake assemblies in place, it's time at this point to install our tire back on. Now, we do recommend using a torque wrench and torquing these down properly per the 1/2" stud application. Something we've seen, especially in the automobile industry, if you tighten these lug nuts down too much, you might cause that rotor to warp a little, decreasing your performance. That's going to complete our look at the Kodiak line of Disc Brake Kits.

Just installed, which was very easy; everything fit nicely! My only complaint concerns the bleed nipples, the neck is too short. Having a heck of a time getting an air tight seal with the bleeder hose. Will update after a few dips in the ocean; will see how well they hold up. Semper Fi 637703

This website is very informative and obviously designed and written by people who know their products. All my questions were answered by the click of a button thus allowing me to order parts that fit with no need for returns. The K2R35 kit was all stainless and made well, installed easily and worked perfect with all parts included. The best choice for saltwater use. Extremely pleased with purchase. 278106

by:

DOES NOT INCLUDE MOUNTING BOLTS. The 7/16 galvanized mounting bolts are NOT included. What a way to cheap out on a 700 dollar set of brakes. The brakes are good and come loaded with SS pads, but making me take a separate trip to the hardware store? That really sends the wrong message when you crack the box open on these. 522960

by:

Used 2 sets on a boat trailer and went electric over hydraulic at the same time. Boat is trailering better then ever. Thinking of going with a similar setup on my toy hauler, I'm that happy with the set up. The install was easer then expected, other then needing to run hydraulic lines, it was as easy as a normal brake job on the trailer. 418058

  • Parts Needed to Install All Stainless EOH Disc Brake Components on Trailer with 3,500 Axles
  • For the idler hub axle the easiest way to add stainless disc brakes would be a slip on kit like part # K2R35S which has rotors that would slip right over the current hubs and comes with everything else needed to install. To convert the hubs too of this axle to stainless you'd also need the part # KH84545S. Using the hub # KH84545S with the slip on disc kit part # K2R35S with it would be your best option for your current brake axle too since it's the only way to get everything stainless....

  • Is the Titan Disc Brake Kit # T4843400 Good For a Salt Water Boat Trailer
  • In the Titan disc brake kit, # T4843400, the hubs and calipers are silver cad plated, the actuator is zinc-coated, and the lines are all steel. This is not an ideal set up for a salt water application. The best option would be to go with stainless steel parts. You could start with Kodiak disc brakes, # K2R35S. For 2 axles you would need 2 sets. They fit 14 inch and larger wheels and will fit a hub with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. The rotors are the over the hub style. The actuator...

  • We have everything you need, just not in one kit. For a disk brake kit that will bolt up to your 4 bolt brake flanges and will slip over your 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern you would want the part # K2R35D for a dacromet finish. Or if your trailer will see salt water I would recommend the stainless steel kit part # K2R35S. You will need a quantity of two of these kits for both axles. For a brake line kit you will need the part # DM5425. And then for a surge brake actuator you would...

  • Will Kodiak Disc Brakes Work on a 3,500 lb. Dexter TorFlex Axle
  • Yes, as long as your 3,500 lb. Dexter TorFlex axles have a brake mount flange. A set of Kodiak brakes such as the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit part # K2R35S for idler hubs or part # K2HR35D for without idler hubs, will work well for you. If you do not have a brake mounting flange already installed on your Dexter TorFlex axles, you will want to have a qualified professional welder do so.

  • Best Disc Trailer Brake Kit for Salt Water Use on 3500 Pound Axle
  • The Kodiak disc brake kit # K2R35DS is made up of Dacromet and stainless steel components. Dacromet has a 400 to 600 hour salt spray rating while stainless steel is about as corrosion resistant as you can get. Still when using these items in a salt water environment be sure to hose them off after use with fresh water. For the absolute best in corrosion resistance go with an all stainless kit like # K2R35S.

  • Everything Needed to Install Electric Over Hydraulic Disc Brakes on Trailer with 3,500 lb Axle
  • I can help you pick out the parts you would need and make it as simple as possible, but there isn't a single axle electric over hydraulic kit that includes everything. You would want to start the part # HS381-9067 which comes with the nicest actuator around, a breakaway kit, junction box and the needed wiring. For the brake components you would want the part # K2R35D for a 3,500 lb kit unless the trailer will be seeing saltwater. In that case you would want the # K2R35S instead. For...

  • Brake Line Kit to be Used with Kodiak Disc Brake Kit K2R35S
  • The Kodiak disc brake kit part # K2R35S is designed for one axle. So it fits the left and right of a single axle. If you had a tandem axle you would need to buy two sets of this. I like flexible brake line as it's easier to work with. So for a single axle trailer you would want the part # 18SI-BLKIT. If you have a tandem axle trailer you instead would want the part # 20TA-BLKIT.

  • Recommend Kodiak Disc Brake Kit To Fit Trailer With 13 Inch Wheels
  • The reason why the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit - 10 Inch Rotor, part # K2R35S, will not fit 13 inch wheels is because part # K2R35S uses a slip on rotor, so the assembly is slightly bigger making the caliper sit out further. You would need a hub and rotor assembly disc brake kit. The caliper and rotors you would need for your trailer with 13 inch wheels is the Kodiak Disc Brake Assembly, part # K2HR35DS. You would need to order a quantity of 2 of part # K2HR35DS, as it is sold for one side....

  • Can Stainless Steel Brake Assemblies Attach to Galvanized Steel Mounting Flange
  • In general if you are in a situation with atmospheric conditions of moderate to mild humidity, contact between a galvanized steel surface and a stainless steel is unlikely to cause substantial incremental corrosion. Only under extreme humidity would this be an issue. I wouldn't worry about it if I were you. We've yet to hear about an issue from any of our customers either.

  • Availability of Rust-Proof Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies for Use in Sea Water
  • Generally electric trailer brakes are not ideal for use in or near water. Boat trailers generally use either drum or disk hydraulic braking systems to avoid mixing water and electricity, which generally do not like each other. The best brakes for salt water environments are stainless steel disc brakes, such as # K2R35S from Kodiak. It would not be a good idea to mix brake components from different manufacturers since these parts would not have been tested together.

  • Is there a Left and Right Side for the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2R35S
  • For Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2R35S it does not matter which side you mount the components. Both of the rotors and the calipers can be mounted on either side. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you.

  • Electric/Hydraulic Disc Brake System for Tandem Axle Boat Trailer Exposed to Saltwater
  • The hub/rotors included in the # T4843700 are Dacromet coated. Dacromet has a 400-600 hour salt spray rating, which means it can withstand 400-600 hours of exposure before signs of corrosion begin to appear. Although stainless offers better corrosion resistance, the Titan kit would last you for awhile, especially if you do a good job of hosing the trailer off after exposure to salt water. The Titan # T4843700 is compatible with 3500 lb axles, and uses a L68149 inner and L44649 outer...

  • How to Determine Correct Replacement Disc Brakes for EZ Loader Boat Trailer for Salt Water
  • I can let you know how to determine what disc brakes you need although we do not have any type of database with parts based on year, make and model of trailer and I was unable to find any reference to a model TRSX240. To get the right replacement disc brake assemblies you need to know the weight capacity of your trailer's axles, the number of bolts in your brake mounting flange (like in the accompanying photo) and your bolt pattern for the rotors to slip over.

  • Which Caliper Should You Start with When Bleeding Brakes
  • When bleeding the brakes, you will indeed want to start with the caliper farthest from the actuator and then bleed the other assemblies that share the same hydraulic circuit. After those have been bled, simply start again on the other side of the trailer with the furthest brake from the actuator. This is to ensure that no air bubbles get trapped up along the trailer lines. I did also check with both Kodiak and Titan and both also recommend starting with the calipers furthest away from...

  • Compatibility of Disc Brake Kits for Idler Hubs on Boat Trailer
  • The Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2R35S is designed for 3500-lb-rated axles that have idler hubs and allows converting them from idler to disc brake operation. The bolt pattern determines whether they will fit on your idler hubs; and they will fit a #84 spindle like # R20484. This system would brake too aggressively if installed on a 2100-lb GAWR axle. Brakes should always be selected based on the axle weight rating; this is true for disc or drum brakes. Typically a 2100-lb axle will...
