ANTILOCK BRAKE SYSTEM APPLICATION TO A MOTORCYCLE FRONT WHEEL

Antilock brake systems suitable for use on a motorcycle were investigated under an experimental safety motorcycle program. Due to program constraints, the only systems investigated were those already perfected by brake system manufacturers. This enabled utilization of the latest state-of-the-art principles to accomplish the desired result in the shortest time. Various types of systems and power sources were investigated. The system chosen for the motorcycle application was a fluid powered system in conjunction with a production hydraulic disc brake. Laboratory and field tests have been conducted with results exceeding expectations.
