Tutorial SC - New brake caliper mount bgm Vespa PX


Our professional brake caliper mount from bgm PRO Made in Italy: Allows the assembly of the radially mounted BGM PRO 4-piston brake caliper, which enables braking values ​​at motorbike level with fine dosing.

The brake caliper mount is available for Vespa or LML. The difference between the two types lies in the different dimensions of the speedometer drive. The selection of the right adapter therefore depends on the existing/used brake drum (Piaggio or LML).

  • A Vespa PX (1985 model) that was subsequently converted to disc brakes with a Grimeca retrofit kit requires the PX adapter.
  • A Vespa PX (1985 model) that was subsequently converted to disc brakes with an LML fork requires the LML adapter.
  • A Vespa PX Disc (1998 model) requires the adapter type Vespa PX.

Vespa sport shock absorbers

bgm PRO SPORT Shock absorber set | bgm7741BKTS

Based on the competition chassis, but without a separate expansion tank and a fixed damping rate. Ideal for everyday sporting use, even with powerful engines.
Very harmonious basic set-up with an optimal balance between sportiness and suitability for everyday use. Compared to the Competition chassis, it is infinitely adjustable in height. This means that the height of the vehicle can be adjusted on both axles. In this way, the front can be lowered or the rear can be raised without having to change the pre-load, which is so important for the negative spring deflection. The front shock absorber can be continuously adjusted between a height of 240mm and 220mm.

  • stepless adjustment of the spring preload
  • sporty, harmonious damping technology
  • individually height adjustable (20mm)


Vespa tire set

The Complete set of tires -bgm Sport black matt tubeless bgm tire and bgm Vespa aluminum rim | bgm35010SLKB 

BGM Pro Sport tires (3.50-10) fully assembled on aluminum sport rim BGM Pro tubeless (2.10-10)
Ready-to-install tire set consisting of the first-class BGM Pro sports tire with a speed index S (approved up to 180km / h) and a load index of 59 (243kg per tire) as well as the exclusive BGM Pro light alloy wheel *.

The specially coordinated material mix with a high silica compound ensures excellent grip in dry and wet conditions. The extremely stable carcass ensures perfect straight-line stability and excellent line accuracy when cornering quickly. Usually tires are simply pressed into shape from a layer of rubber. The bgm tires are significantly more complex to produce and consist of several layers in order to create the perfect tire that meets the highest requirements and has the highest speed rating on the market.

The solid aluminum rim from BGM PRO made by FA.Italia saves around 600 grams compared to an original PX steel rim. In addition, there is a weight saving of around 370 grams due to the hose that is no longer required. The unsprung mass is thus reduced by almost one kilogram per axle. The responsiveness of the chassis improves noticeably.

With a double so-called "hump" in the rim bed, the tire is always safely guided in the rim. Similar to the latest runflat technology in the automotive sector, the air can slowly escape if a foreign object (nail or similar) is inserted without the tire slipping into the rim well. The vehicle comes to a controlled stop. The rim has recesses between the screw-on points. The cooling of the brake is improved.


Vespa 4 piston brake caliper

Brake caliper and brake carrier bgm Touring | Bgm2506BK & bgm2507LBL

Solid 4 piston Vespa brake caliper with radial attachment.
Two-part CNC milled housing made of high-strength aluminum, anodized.

With 4x25mm pistons, the caliper has 40% more piston area than a conventional two-piston caliper with 30mm pistons. The hydraulic transmission ratio is greatly improved and the braking force (with the same lever force) increased. Another advantage of the 4 piston technology is the symmetrical loading of the pads, which means that they are always fully in contact. A pad change is done quickly and easily with a stud bolt. A big advantage in racing. Central connection of the brake line.
