WTB: 929/954/RC51 front master cylinder and caliper

Im looking for a smaller MC/caliper so I can move my throttle and brake in. My tharbars are just too wide and uncomfortable sitting in traffic.

I assume when you mean smaller you mean one with a remote reservoir.
The 919 M/C is 14mm
The 929 and 954 are 19mm and RC M/C's are either 17mm or 19mm.
Putting on a 17 or 19 mm M/C would give you a very hard lever and very little feel.
You could change the calipers to the appropriate ones and have a balanced system. The calipers are interchangeable.
In addition the M/C and calipers from a F4i work.
There are a number of threads on this in the search section.

Make sure to post on the fireblades.org site too. Lots of owners of those bikes there.

Speedzilla and rc51forums.com are also great sources for parts

Old CB400s use 14mm but exit out the front. Im getting one for the same reason. New old stock ones here are cheap.

What is it that you want, exactly?
I have an assortment of RC51 brake parts. Do you want M/C's SP1 or SP2, calipers SP1 or SP2? I have a set of radial adapters and calipers for RC51 forks.

It really doesn't matter, just looking for a radial MC and compatible calipers.

I'm running stock forks if that makes any difference.

Never mind I do not have any Radial M/C's.
929, 954, F4i and RC51's do not have Radial M/C's or Radial calipers.
I do not know of a bike with Radial M/C and non radial calipers. You can mix and match.

Sorry Hondad I slept about 30 min last night, idk why I said radial. I meant remote reservoir and compatible calipers. Anything with a not so wide MC and not so expensive price tag.

Just a gentle warning, I don't think you are going to save as much room as you think you are. You might be able to eek out a little more space but I don't think its going to be a lot. I guess every little bit can help though.

The SP2 master I put on mine is 2-3/4" from lever pivot to the hose mounting surface, I don't know what the stock master measures

Well I just realized that I have a Koso gauge waiting to be installed so that should give me more room to move the MC in. Idk why I didn't think of that in the first place.

The question is how much room do you have before you hit the angled portion of the bars and throwing off the levers alignment with the bars?
