What are ppeoples thoughts of this mc for the 125?
I understand that this is designed for the larger twin rotor bikes and a there is a smaller RCS15. These are really pricey here in Aus and with the great exchange ratte can buy cheaper overseas at present. Just can't find the 15 for sale anywhere cheap, always the 19. So wondering if it is likely to bite extremly hard and dangerous or with adjustment ok?

I have a Brembo billet radial m/c, 19x20 on my RS125. Combined with braided lines its all youll need. 2 finger braking at max, its brilliant. Dont go thinking its strict guidelines about what works with what setup, 19x20 is meant for dual i think, but works brilliant for me on the RS

Theyre quite a bit cheaper in the US, try there, thats where i got mine from. though the exchange rate has worsened over the late year or 2

Random,
Thats the thing. Ebay are selling in US are selling for $320 and with a good exchange rate at present that makes about $450 delivered which sounds good. I have an 08 so already have braided line and have ordered wavey rotors. What clutch lever you suggest to match?

Anyone have a suggestion as to a nice simple black clutch lever for the rs. Looking for something to match a Brembo RCS?

Change the clutch mount to one that you can get a Pazzo lever for. Ie, older Triumph Daytona, R1 etc

Use some imagination!

So? How's the brembo 19 working out? I'm installing older Gixxer forks on my RS with a 6 piston binder...I'm not sure if I should use the 19 or 16 size... have a couple of cold months ahead of me to build my race project.

Let me know how the 19 works with the stock binder.


Thanks
Richard

Theyll work fine :) tellin ya, youll be happy

Becyk - Let us have some pics and info when youve done the fork mod. I was considering the GSXR forks for a while but picked up some TiN coated Showas off a 998 cheap and theyve been put on my RS now

Random/becyk, what diameters are these older forks? Are they the same as the stock 40mm units?

This sounds like it might be a great way to get better front suspension without breaking the bank.

There you go. project is nearly finished now. I dont think any forks will be a straight swap, you dont realise clearance issues properly until you come to do it. Theres more to it than the diameter of the forks, trust me.

In my case it needed yokes boring out / sleeving, new front axle, custom spacers and larger ID wheel bearings. Also a brake disc spacer and caliper adaptor. I then had to modify a Ducati mudguard to fit too, due to the narrower track compared to the 998.

Then whatever you fit will prob need respringing too due to bike weight differences. I dont mind though, i like messing with stuff!
