Anyone done the front radial master cylinder upgrade? Might be keen to try something other than Brembo. regards Warwick

Nissin brand, commonly used on lot of the jap bikes such GSX-R's area are good option.
Usually cheaper than Brembo especially if you get a 2nd hand one and you can parts to overhaul them.
The best improvement with or without a radial m/cyl are a set of EBC HH pads.

Several people here have gone down this route, I was going to until I realised that my hands are now so buggered and insensitive it would be wasted on me. Ten years ago I would of been all over it like a rash. Alas I'm past that point now... Crying or Very sad

Any body had experience with the Braking or Performance Technologies mastery cylinders? I have 2 mates with Panagalies that both have to be bled every couple of weeks so am not so keen on Brembo. Have looked at Nissan but no folding lever models. cheers warwick

WTF? I've got an RCS 19 on my GRiSO and haven't had to bleed it. Actually, I have. I installed the RCS in July 2015. I bled it when I changed the calipers last year.

Sounds like bullshit to me.

In general, hydraulic brakes should only need bleeding when the system has been "opened up" for some reason, or when a leak has either allowed air in or allowed enough brake fluid to drain out that the master cylinder is pumping air. The "need to bleed" indicates a problem with the brakes.
