Brembo m/c

Well I pulled the trigger on a new Brembo brake m/c...so I'm wondering from anyone using an aftermarket m/c, any difficulty on fitment? Clearance problems?, or just plain horror stories.

Any advice or tricks for install? or just straight up easy? I'm hoping for the latter.

Brembo RCS19 with Brembo reservoir, bracket and shorty folding lever if you have fit this setup tell me your experiences with it.

Thanks

Post up some pics as you go. I have no experience with these but when you hear Brembo, you know the quality is there.

Hope you got the right lines and fittings. The brembo MC requires different banjo bolt!

Don't know yet if they are the right lines but I did get the right double banjo.

the lines issue is just the fittings on the end as the orientation of the brembo MC bolt hold for the banjo is different than stock which causes problems.

yeah, i have heard of guys getting the galfers to work which are the same fitting orientation as stock, but its supposed to be difficult. Spiegler lines are the way to go for this Master, also i've heard of guys adding 1.5" to the line (having custom line made). i still need to do this too.

galfer fittings on the end are adjustable meaning you can pivot them but if you call them and tell them you are using the brembo or accossatto master cylinder they will put the right fittings on before sending them to you. Thats what I did, but because I am using ohlins forks i needed slightly longer lines so had to get them re done.

I do not recommend using the banjo if it is too long. Using extra crush washers is not advised. Also you have to realize the port in the banjo bolt has a hole in it that has to line up right with the brake line. Yes standard length lines work but put ur bike on a front stand then with the brake line in place step on the rim and fully extend the forks. You will find that it stresses the line which is not good for your lines. Make sure you do it correctly and safely not half assed as its ur ass that will suffer when it fails
