How difficult would it be to...

put 954 or 929 front master brake cylinders on my F2? I've heard it can be done but do not know what that entails. Could it be done with ease? I want to, in general, to improve my brakes.

What do you guys think?

Do you have the Stainless Steal braided lines yet? Those make a major improvement over the stock lines. I'd start there, it's fast and easy.

I agree. That and some HH pads. Unless you replace your entire front end with the 929, it would probably be difficult to match up the caliper bolts, disc size, etc.

You might have to have a bracket(s) fabricated to mount them...but you should be able to...have you looked at aftermarket for a system for your bike?

With the new lines and some nice syn brake fluid, and new HH pads... you'll be surprised how much better they perform. With no real parts change over.

Hm...maybe I'll try this first, as it seems to be the safer way around. Now where's that repair manual....

Any tips or things I should be extra careful about when changing these?

Don't let brake fluid touch anything you don't want ruined...It will destroy paint and bodywork

Do a search for Brakes, and SS lines... there are two threads in particular that have very good tips in them.. If I have time I'll look for 'em later, but this work computer is S L O W
