A Big Brake Kit for the Can-Am Maverick X3 is the modification you never thought about but absolutely need! If you are a Can-Am X3 owner, you already know that the brake pedal is soft and these high horsepower machines do not stop like they should. As a premiere manufacture of UTV products, Agency Power has gone to extreme measures to develop the best 4 wheel big brake kit available for the Can-Am Maverick X3. After extensive testing, we have engineered a brake kit that is a direct bolt-on, provides a proper balanced brake system, and aesthetically looks amazing behind the wheels.
All brake components are manufactured right here in the USA in conjunction with one of the leading performance brake manufactures. This brake system was designed specifically for the Can-Am Maverick X3. With our nearly yearlong testing of different braking concepts and products on the market, we found it absolutely necessary to do a 4 wheel brake kit. With the engine in the rear and how off-road suspension works, typical automotive designs will not produce the improved braking performance the X3 needs. Our calipers are a 2 piece construction that has built in “ears” to mount to the wheel carrier. Removing the need for additional brackets and spacers like other companies may use, gives the Agency Power caliper an extremely rigid advantage. Each caliper half is assembled using 4 10mm cross bolts for maximum stiffness. Other products on the market only use 3/8 inch hardware which is not adequate. This rigidity eliminates caliper flex from hard pedal pressure or the potential of pad knock back. In any motorsport, opposing piston caliper, pad "knock back" can occur from street cars to off-road use. The only way to eliminate this is with a floating caliper design like OEM. However you lose the performance of what a big brake kit can offer.
Internally, the caliper is well designed with custom machined piston sizing that provide an overall surface area comparable to many 6 piston vehicle brakes. Studying the way the vehicle would move under braking allowed us to come up with the proper piston bore for the front and rear calipers. Giving the Can-Am X3 a perfect squat under hard braking allows you to control your vehicle better compared to an unbalanced nose dive. The Agency Power kit has been designed to use the stock master cylinder, stock brake lines, and still provide a much better pedal feel! Another added value of the caliper is the hard anodized aluminum pistons. These are extremely lightweight allowing them to move with ease to help with the clamping force on the rotor. Using both dust and weather seals, the brakes will not have issues from the harsh off-road elements compared to other products that only use pressure seals. With a simple single side bleeder screw, bleeding the brakes does not require you to go from inside to outside on the caliper which saves time. Finally the caliper has an internal cross over to allow brake fluid to go to each side of the caliper and equally put pressure to the pistons. This gives the caliper a clean look and also eliminates the worry about breaking off external cross over pipes found on other systems.
Brake pads for the 4 wheel kit were chosen to provide the optimal performance for the majority of users. With the focus on balance, getting the right friction for the front and rear was important for this setup. The front caliper uses a Hawk HP+ N-Compound while the rear uses a DR1-C ceramic brake pad. Once bed-in properly, the brakes will provide amazing performance without excess squeaking noise. The brake pads are a common shape which allows for ease to access replacement pads. An extremely important part of the big brake kit is the rotors. We utilize a 2 piece cast iron brake rotor just like you would see on high performance car brakes. Cast iron dissipates heat much better than steel like the factory style. Steel will hotspot and throw heat back into the caliper making fluid boil and cause pedal inconsistencies. Cast iron also has a higher coefficient of friction compared to the single thin stamped steel rotor. Each rotor is vented, slotted, and cross drilled. Because the rotors are also directional, while the rotor is spinning, it acts like a pump to cool the brake down. With the rotors larger diameter, this increases torque and leverage of the brake. Since brakes are essentially a heat sink, the better and more accurately we can dissipate heat, the better the brake will perform.
The Agency Power Big Brake Kit is sold as a 4 wheel brake system only. It is designed to be used on 15 inch wheels. We have tested the fitment of the brakes with common wheels such as Method Race Wheels in both a 0mm and 13mm offset as well as Fuel Wheels 38mm offset. The brake kit will not clear the stock 14 inch wheels. It is available in many different color options. Kits include a 1 year manufacture warranty against defects. Replacement and consumable parts are available.
