    Before:


    I wasn't happy with how all of the components performed to date. So I made one last attempt at getting it all right before I took it to a shop. I spent a lot of time checking the system out and doing a lot of brake bleeding.

    After:


    I'm happy to report I'm satisfied with the results. I can now lock up that big 200 series tire if I want to. I doubt the master cylinder made the difference. I think it might be proper air bleeding. Anyway, it works well now. And I like the look. Sometimes less is more.

    Just bought the rear master, now just wait for it to come in and get it coated black!

    This is going to look mediocre!

    Oh9bolt: Is that the same bore size as the OE? I know going to a smaller bore will help the wooden rear Buell brake syndrome and make it progressive and functional. 2 birds, one stone and all that

    Yeah, but keep us informed, because I like your idea of mediocre.

    I think it is 13mm, I'm not positive. I am mainly looking for better fit with the rizoma rearsets, the stock master brake light switch is up against the subframe. I think I am going to cancel the brake light switch all together now though.

    Haha will do, I need to disassemble get it coated and then get a rebuild kit in it. After all that it will still probably be mediocre like the shine on Neil's polished header.
