I am in a quandary, both levers /master cylinders need replacing. Do I replace with originals or go for something else. Who's done what? I've read some talk on radials, but I believe that involves replacing hoses as well? Any comments, ideas gratefully received.

Hey Paggers, I did exactly that and posted it in GRiSO Ex Libris section link here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Let me know if you have any questions (eg you will probably need new brake cable but not clutch) but I think I covered all the options and challenges in the write up. Been a great upgrade and although more expensive than replacement standard ones, well worth it IMHO

Thanks for that Paul, definitely food for thought there.

Well I decided to go for Hel radials in the end. With the adaptor piece, I didn't need to replace any pipes.
I got reservoirs from ebay, and with a little bit of jiggery pokery managed to fit them directly to the master cylinders. I don't like the look of reservoirs up in mid air.
With the bar end mirrors I think it all looks OK.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to get the rear/seat fairing in the right colour, so I'm going to have to spray it, so does anyone know where you can get the 'GRiSO' decals from?

Right, the seat. Looking at options, re-cover, re-upholster, new seat, etc. Have any of you good folks had any experience with Tourtecs re-upholstering of seats?
