Are you looking for wear-resistant components for motorcycles, motor scooters or other scooters? Do you want to replace metal sliding bearings and rolling bearings and therefore benefit from better quality and the potential for improved productivity? igus offers a great selection of lubrication-free and maintenance-free polymer bearings that can meet these requirements precisely and are characterised by high load capacity and a long service life. In many cases, performance can be improved by a factor of up to 10 in comparison to other, metal types of bearing. iglidur plain bearings are deployed in suspension forks, brakes, throttle valves and other places on motorcycles and motor scooters.
Krämer Motorcycles (KMC) were looking for light and maintenance-free bearings for their Supermono racing bike. The solution: iglidur plain bearings, which are used in the link, brake and shift system as well as in the footrests. Additionally, two igubal rod end bearings are used in the foot brake lever. In contrast to metal solutions, igus products are light and, thanks to their dry operation, resistant to dirt and maintenance-free. Furthermore, you can precisely calculate their service life with the igus online tools.
