What do I need to know when mixing and matching master cylinders to my brake calipers?
I've got non-radial brakes on a set of GSXR 750 forks. The matching master cylinder here is questionable... I've heard that an R1 master cylinder bolts right up, but what do I need to know to determine what will fit for myself?
This can be of help: https://www.wristtwisters.com/forums/...der-48345.html
All it requires is the caliper piston diameters and as precise as possible measurements from whatever master cylinder (M/C) you want, or guidance on how to select one with the right bore and mechanical leverage ratios. Of course it can also be used to select a suitable axial M/C.
I used this procedure to determine that a M/C from a CBR1000 would be a suitable replacement for the stock 919 M/C, taking into account the feel I was shooting for.
If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.
