Myself I prefer Brembo cups and masters, but I'm sure anyone of those cups will work fine.

If I decided to buy any of those from above, would they be universal for clutch and front brake? Because I'm just looking for the reservoir to go for the clutch fluid

Are you looking to use one with the OEM clutch master cylinder?

You need to remember that the OEM cup fits inside the master and is sealed with O-rings. It is not connected via a hose or flex line.

I honestly can't remember how the stock cups are mounted? It would be determined my the bracket angle and the mount on the cup but I would delve a bit further before buying.

Tempting... but if you were ever in need of a stock unit and you were down on your luck, I would pay the shipping and send one down my friend.

I guess that does make sense. Didn't really think about the OEM fitting and the clutch master cylinder. I guess I'll have to buy the OEM cup/cap/brackets 👿

Thanks man. I was about to pick up a set of RCS's from Mike, but decided to get DucJr's triple clicker instead.


OP, sorry about the thread jack.
But I really don't think there is a simple way of changing out the OEM cup without changing the master.
