There are a million posts on this topic. My advice is to get yourself a Brembo master cylinder at around $240 USD.

LOL I donít know who told you that but if someone told you that a "DID" chain will cause surging then he is an idiot. If you chain has a tight spot it might cause a surge feeling but I doubt you would notice it but you would hear a slapping unless you chain is way to tight then it could bind up. DID is a good chain there are better out there though but did is not bad.

When you bleed your brakes take the left side caliper off, put a piece of metal between the pads and bleed it holding it up so that the air does not get trapped in the section of line that curves over the fender.

O btw
