Hi,
Having just read the August edition of PB mag (I know its late, but thats when we get it here), there was a mention of how they are turning a K5 into a race bike.

For their Rear brake master cylinder, a Honda CRF450 item is used. Their reason was that is, there isn't a resevior and all the fluid is self-contained.

So would it work on the Factory?

Thats impossible to work on RSVs couse that kind of rear brake master cylinder work in vertical position when the stock rear brake master cylinder is located horizontally as shown

Are we talking for a self-contained brake fluid rear MC and not RSV's stock?????
CRF/KXF/RMZ and many more dirt bikes use that typeof rear M/C

IF so

How can this specific type of rear M/C work horizontally(original RSV location)???

Not to mention brake fluid re-filling....and......bleeding procedure

I misinterpretted what you were saying there 17". Now if he can find a way to mount the self contained m/c on the Satos, that would be a neat fix.

But then again, I put the Satos on and fixed/properly bled the system and the rear brake worked fine.
