    Radial Front Brake MC upgrade 07 R Factory....Doooo IT!!!!!

    First huge shoutout to Bloodnutt for all of his help and patience with my stupid questions...

    Just installed a radial front brake MC off a 2009 RSV and the results were excellent. Much better feel and progression with two fingers and hardly any pressure. Just about a complete plug and play. Only thing I had to do was make a mounting bracket for the reservoir the brake light plug is identical. Did a quick reverse bleed and presto kick ass front brakes!!

    It would be a lot stupider not to ask questions, after all that is what this forum is for.

    It took about an hour from start to finish. Hardest part was making the bracket for the reservoir, the rest was just remove and replace.

    I did this on my 01 Mille and I can't say the brake was any more powerful the the ability to modulate near the limit of traction was immensely improved.
