Did you know that the first Harley Davidson motorcycles didn’t actually have brakes? Pretty bizarre. Of course, these bikes weren’t going anywhere near as fast as todays bikes, there wasn’t hardly a need for brakes! But nowadays, we think that we can all agree that brakes are no longer just optional. That’s why we’ve put together our assortment of Harley brake shoes.

Most of the brake shoes you see here are organic; organic brake shoes are characterized as offering a soft, smooth, and quiet braking experience. They are easy on brake drums too. These brake shoes are a great choice.

We also have a metallic option available as well! Metallic brake shoes tend to be harder and offer more responsive braking. However, they have their downsides as well. They are louder, less smooth, and harder on brake drums than their organic counterpart. Still, if you are looking for a brake that offers sharp and aggressive braking, this might very well be the brake for you.

Use the Ride Selector at the top of the page to find all of the brake shoes that fit your specific Harley. If you have any other questions on our brake shoe selection, simply click the “Ask A Question” On the product description page. Our friendly staff will get back to you as soon as they can. If you get a product and decide you don’t want it, just check out our no hassle return policy and send that brake shoe right on back. We just want to help however we can here at Dennis Kirk!
