Have owned RC51's since the first SP1 (still have it for a track bike). Original ROGUE guy as well as Speedzilla. Thought I would say hello.

Just finished rebuilding the SP1:

Welcome to the group!!
Nice looking '04 there (at least the bodywork hints at it).
Love the Ohlins forks.
Have you had clearance problems with radial master cylinders?
I'm pondering installing them and haven't taken any measurements.

Thanks...the bike is an '00 with an SP2 swingarm and Sharkskinz bodywork. I have had no problems at all with the Brembo radial master cylinders.
The bike has many mods. which are to numerous to list.

Better feel and more direct action.
Also, Brembo offers on it's newer line, the ability to change the leverage ratio.
For street use, most suppliers have a higher leverage ratio at the cost of feel.
By using a lower leverage choice, you get better feel at the cost of effort.
Most racers prefer the better feel for what the brakes are doing rather than overall braking effort, especially if you're at the edge of traction.
