brembo advice

alright im doing braided lines and pads but it sounds that the the travel on the 19x18 brembo master is gonna give me a little more (room for error) in case i grab a little too much brake as compared to the higher ratios and is the higher second number indicate less travel. thanks track heads.

Is there a question here?
I upgraded to Woodridge stainless steel brake lines on my YZF when I replaced the pads. Simple install.

people (they) say the 19x18 offers the best feel or feedback, compared
to a 19x20

The lever can be adjusted on the brembo's.

Also if you have not learned by now that you are not to grab a handful of brake then a Brembo will not help you.

I have 19x18 on one bike and 19x20 on another. Better feel more accuracy on the 18, and more travel on the 20. Either way, they will STOP you VERY well.

Careful, once you've had a Brembo master cylinder you'll never want a stocker again. Damn those aftermarket components!

And of course, Turn One Racing stocks and rocks the Brembos on all our own bikes.

I have the folding lever 19x18 on my bike right now, and I love it more than most things in life. Is that wrong?

Wow, I just noticed we're $20 less expensive than the link above. Sweet.

I have a Brembo 19 RCS master cylinder that can switch back and forth between a 19x18 and a 19x20 with a simple 1/4 turn of a cog in the folding brake lever. It also came with a lever actuated brake light switch rather than a banjo pressure switch. These can usually be found for a mere $30 more than a regular brembo master cylinder. Probably the best upgrade that I have ever made.

speaking of #1 mods

not that i would want to shell out the cash LOL! and keeping in mind it would cost half of the price of a new cbr liter , bst rims and hell a set of ceramics would be unreal as far as losing rotational mass. 3500.00 plus bearings is alot of cake. lol. have any of you serious guys seen bsts in road racing?

+1. I run the 19RCS on the track bike. It's awesome. By comparison, the stockers on the CBR and the Gixxer are real mushy.
