looking for brake upgrades.

I am looking to do a master cylinder upgrade on my 06' F4i and was wondering if the new 07' RR m/c would fit. I was also looking at Brembo but was not sure which one to get. I am hoping that I can just take one off of another sportbike and retrofit. Has anyone done this for an F4i? Thanks.

Have you put staineless lines on the front brakes yet? if not, just try those first, I hear they are INCREDIBLY good.

I'm not an engineer, but there's a fine balance between the surface area of the piston in your master cylinder and the surface area of the piston(s) in your calipers. If I wanted more braking power the first thing I would do is change the pads and clean the rotors.

yeah I am actually looking at doing all of the above , ss lines, galfer front and rear rotors and I just like the look of the remote reservoir and have heard that it makes a big difference in brake feel.

well, when you put the stuff you're going to on there, even without the different master cylinder, you'll notice a HUGE difference.

New SS lines, new synthetic brake fluid and some HH sintered pads will do the trick.

Don't spend a ton of $$$ without following this advice first, New SS lines and the HH pads will provide a ton of stopping power for your combo

Never heard of upgrading the master cylinder. Definitely get the lines and pads though, and then consider the rotors. The line upgrade itself will be HUGE. One of the best bang:buck you can get for your ride.
