Brembo Racing billet brake master vs RCS master

I just bumped on to this master



which is listed at discount of € 2084 (from originally € 2315)

http://www.ebay.it/itm/POMPA-FRENO-A...05f48b1&_uhb=1

It has a 19mm diameter piston at 18mm pivot distance.

The RSC master has a 19mm piston with an adjustable pivot distance of 18mm to 20mm and costs € 255 to € 300 usually.

Why is that huge price gap between those two, I wonder...

I can see that the expensive one is made out of billet one piece aluminum block but how much difference can this add to the master's functionality?

im sure some of the price is because its the exact one used on the MotoGP bikes, the build quality on my RCS's are very nice and i cant imagine these would be "that much" better. maybe the machining is better, but im sure you would need another 15-20k in front end parts to really tell the difference

Definitely tighter tolerances, the RCS is a forged unit. The billets will stand up to crashes a whole better as well, I see titanium bits in that unit too. I have a very very nice billet clutch master, acquired from my good friend rgm he hardly ever posts here and only once I awhile on Speedzilla.

I just picked up all his carbon body work, 1.5 sets of complete Sato exhaust and a whack of nice little goodies as well...spare Sato rearset stuff and so on.

Good read buddy...what position do you like your RCS at? I personally like the 19x18 and never really switch it. I'm tempted to sell the RCS or trade it plus cash to someone tthat has a billet brake master 19x18. I would love to try a 19x16...

Since I don't track my RC, I prefer the 20mm offset better than the 18mm.
The brakes are more manageable since I don't have to brake hard while riding around public roads.
Plus I avoid a front wheel locking due to shinned asphalt which is a common thing around here.

Really I find the 20 to sudden...I love the progressive feel the 18 gives. Sure there is a bit more lever travel but its very linear.

In my case it all boils down to that moment when a car's front bumper suddenly pops out a road ahead of you and your finder twitches against the level for half a sec....

I found out that in the 20mm position, that's more manageable to me and to my way of riding.......

But I totally agree with you on the theory
