The K&N and tank slapper stickers must be at least a couple grams in weight? Lol

Rear brake m/c options

Ok I have wanted to improve my rear brake for quite a while and spent alot of time on the net looking for answers,I was trying to find out what master cylinder would give me more bite to match my Brembo P2/34 caliper!I replaced my rear rotor with a Mikeymoto light weight option that obviously drops weight but does rob braking power,now anyone can chime in here if my knowledge that I've tried to gain is incorrect with my m/c piston size to gain better initial bite is wrong!I believe the oem m/c piston size is 14 on the Nissin,finding a aftermarket m/c with 50mm mounting holes is hard in itself but I think I've found some options!Brembo PS12 is one and Nissin also has a 12 diameter m/c also!12 being the piston size and both have mounting M8 that suits the gen4.
Brembo PS12-$125aus
Nissin 12-$145aus
Please chime in with advice if you have knowledge with caliper m/c ratios

A smaller piston will give you more travel in the pedal I think. I had the exact same brembo m/c on my K7 and with the small brembo caliper I had almost no rear brake at all. With the stock master I can barely lock the rear wheel,and that's with a PVM rear rotor which has maybe double the surface area of the MMR rotor.

MMR rear rotors are only for applications where the rear brake is hardly used,and with his carbon rear rotors I would never touch the rear brake lol

Thanks Balogiannis!I just reread a msg from Brembo and you are correct!smaller piston longer lever stroke!increase piston size shorter stroke!so if I want more initial bite I go above 14!if I 15-16 do you think it might help?or go for a full floater rear rotor like LDH is running (I think a Braketech)that is lighter than oem and much better surface area than MM

Titanium bleeders

Received my M10 front titanium bleed bolts and ordered the rear,next step is a titanium pad retaining pin,it's getting pretty hard now to find oem bolts and nuts to change.Ive ordered M5 ti self tapping screws that hold the top of the airfilter box in place and there's over 12 to replace at the very least!Im also considering changing the 8xM8 manifold nuts to there titanium equivalent but I'm sure someone mentioned once there disturbed leaks follow,anyway enough of my anal b.s.

Header pipe M8 nuts

Replacing the oem M8 header pipe nuts to ti,I'm waiting for Carbon fiber front fairing nose piece,the under cowl and rear pieces that sits on either side under the solo cowl from Motocomposites!I ordered them around 5 weeks ago and I've been told they have been waiting for the front under cowl from the factory,the other pieces are finished and it's due any day and will be shipped out asap!I removed the oem fairing pieces already so with the both fairing sides off the header pipe nuts are not to bad to access so a decided to kill 2 birds with 1 stone and fit them tomorrow.

On my bike, I removed the exhaust studs, and replaced the stud and nut with a bolt. Bit of a pain getting the pipe back on, but worth the hassle.

Do not walk behind me, for I may not be leading.
Do not walk in front of me, for I may not follow.
Do not walk alongside me, for the path may be narrow.
Just piss off and leave me alone.

A little more ti

I found some ti M6 disc bolts that replaces the lower fairing mount bolts,the handlebar bolts that secure it to the top triple clamp and the 2 bolts that secure the battery tray to the rear supports!I needed to adjust 4 of them as the thread was a little long
