Brembo is using 10mm x1.00 pitch

You should get a set of those with the pressure switch embeded for both masters off ebay.
Very tidy and fail proof installation they are.

id like to use the same switch provided by brembo originally as the RCS has a space provided specifically for that type switch.

was just trying to see if anyone that rides track had one they werent using, will most likely source the banjo bolts online

I got that but since Brembo is making it's parts for track use only, I wouldn't trust their switch for long lasting endurance against the nature's elements for long. Especially moisture.

Didn't mean to patronize you and I'm sorry if I did.

no not at all Makis

im just a sucker for OEM brembo, my buddy has the RCS19/16 setup on his street duty hypermotard since 2010 or so and its been working fine I just figured if there is already a place to put the Brembo switch on the RCS, whats the point of using another style when its the same price either way.

I ordered a complete set of Stainless brake lines from CoreMoto and i got the banjos that are for the OEM Honda masters. Im assuming that these will not fit the Brembos the same.

Ive already ordered the LadyBird Res/Stay setup from Simon, should look very nice

When I installed my RCS masters on both sides I had a custom brake line kit made for me.
OEM braided brake line for the clutch since I had the OEM master installed.
However, since I had a 2008 CBR1000RR brake master installed, I ordered a CBR1KRR braided pair of brake lines on the front.
I didn't think they could be used on the RCS at first but when I installed the Brembo, turned out the fitted right on.
But if I had the front brake lines made for the RC's OEM master, they would definitely NOT fit to the RCS, that's for sure.

There are switch kits available, such as the one I fitted to the Accossato BMC to be used on my motard project. It comes with a longer stainless steel pivot bolt and other bits & pieces. It's needlessly expensive though.



Makis is right - the easiest and neatest way to have a switch is via a pressure one that also doubles as a banjo bolt (1.00 thread size, not 1.25 IIRC - check your M/C before ordering).
It's also the cheapest way to do it. Reliable too.

Maybe something like this, if you will use two lines each going from the BMC.

well im using the banjo bolt switch type on the rear brake, that seems to be alright. I just dont want that feature/space to go to waste on the 19RCS, since there is already a solution from brembo for the same price.

thought i might find someone who was using these on the track and didnt need the brake switch

Really - For the same price? Can you point me at it please...
I don't have a switch on my SP for the clutch. So it won't start unless I have it in neutral, side stand down, etc.

I had the same problem with the clutch's RCS master so I ordered a banjo bolt switch for it.
When I got it, I tried o install it but it was longer than the master hole's depth so it wouldn't seal the line's banjo. LMAO...

I didn't follow up on it and using the bike as you describe for now.....I will solve this glitch once I get the time though..
