Pump Master Cylinder
of the best upgrades is adding this cool master cylinder from Brembo.
It is the same type used on the NSR500 and RC211V Honda works racers.
The feeling and `touch` are fantastic !! Better braking control too !!
conversion is not a bolt on job. One problem is to find a way to mount
the reservoir tank for the brake fluid. I used a custom bracket from TSR
and then a radiator stay from an old Kawasaki that fit perfectly. Other
things to consider are the brake lines which will be around 8cm too short.
So I ordered a new set of Earls stainless lines. Finally the bleeder bolt
into the master cylinder is smaller than the Nissin master and will need
to be replaced too.
bought this Brembo reservoir tank from a local parts shop and cut around
one of the edges for a cleaner look. A billet filler cap was added for
better looks and a new stock Brembo rubber hose was added too.
master cylinder installed with all the goodies. It fits perfect and does
not hit the cowl, meters, screen or stay. One thing is there is no switch
for the brakes, so I added a electronic micro switch under the M/C for
about 45 dollars. It works perfectly and keeps my NSR road legal ( I think
) I would definitely recommend this conversion for all NSR riders who
want to improve their brakes more.
