Part: Honda SL350 Front Drum Brake Shoes
Why You Need This Part: If you haven't rebuilt the brakes on your Honda SL350 it's about time you do so. The friction lining on those 40-year-old brake pads is probably all but worn through and its best not to ride around on wheels laced to questionable drum brakes. Remember that your front brake holds 80% of the stopping power of the bike, so make sure it's functioning properly. The factory style return springs are also included. While you're cracking into the front brake system you should also take the opportunity to replace your brake cable. Riding around with a frayed or damaged cable can be dangerous. Note that these shoes are for the smaller SL350 K1 and K2 drum brakes (also CB175), not the large drums on the SL350 K0, CB and CL 350.
Installation Tip: Apply a light coat of brake caliper grease (auto parts store) to the shoes pivot points for butter smooth operation. Make sure not to get any grease on the friction surface. If the surface of your drum is rusty, it may need to be sanded or wire brushed.
