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.;)

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

Hope you got the right lines and fittings. The brembo MC requires different banjo bolt!
Most bikes use banjo bolts with a 1.25mm thread pitch, but Brembo uses 1.0mm thread pitch.
If the MC does not arrive with a banjo bolt, you must order the proper one.

How is your tree lower than stock? This post you just wrote completely contradicts your last post in this thread....

Nobody-Im sure if I dig around I have an extra banjo one in my tool box. I also have some custom lines that will probably work that dont require a double banjo. Ill have to measure those up but they are HEL denim blue with red fittings.

im using my phone to post , not working so good , deleting my last post and start over with more clear post later ,
Thats a pretty lame excuse you give a member some BS and unsafe things to do to their bike claiming you did it on yours then delete that post and re post saying almost exact opposite then blame your phone? Do you even own an RC51, I doubt you even have half the mods you claim and if you do its because you bought it that way or paid someone to do it not because you have done it yourself. Do all of us a huge favor, dont post technical info that you know absolutely nothing about, you are going to cause people to damage their bikes and themselves following your advice.

good to know. those are the galfer SBK lines right? i have the plain galfer lines. No way they will fit. No pivot and too short.

LMFAO- you forced the stock banjo into the brembo master cylinder and fucked it all to hell...LMAO there is NO way the holes line up with that many spacers, you are an IDIOT.

correct banjo

See the photo, one is correct that came from galfer, the other is the standard that comes from galfer unless you tell them you need fitting for brembo or other.

Nobody-This picture is of a spare so if you need one I have one! According to RC51Anthony they are on a 5 week backorder...lol I have 3.

BTW if the bolt was TOO long as you stated and you made it work with washers to ensure the holes lined up correctly, the extra crush washers would be between the first brake line and the master cylinder, not between the two brake lines. Double banjos are designed to line up the holes using 3 crush washers, one between the bolt head and the second line, one between the first and second lines and one between the first line and the body of the master cylinder. So by having all of those extra washers between the first and second line one of your calipers is not getting proper braking pressure. Id be willing to bet your wearing pads out a lot faster on one side than the other as a result too and under extremely hard braking your bike tends to pull to one direction as a result. Such a shame and a waste of a good master cylinder.
