Hi everyone. I've searched at length on this subject and want to make sure I've got the right ideas about upgrading my 06's brakes. I doubt there's a single answer but feedback would be appreciated.
Like many others, my lever ran out of room by the time it started really started to scrub speed. I swapped out to Galfer lines, and their 1375 pads. It's a bit better now, I don't run out of room anymore but the first half of the lever's stroke is wasted travel before it actually grabs. BTW - I bled the hell out of them and also tried the piston-pushing technique to get where I am. It's bearable, but not satisfactory yet.
I've been swayed toward the idea of a new master cylinder as my next step.
--Looking at Brembo's, I found a reasonable price on the M/C's but it's an extra ~100 bucks or so to rig up the brake light switch. The cost of the brake switch makes me wonder if I shouldn't just try for the RCS model, even though it's bleeding edge and probably not available yet. It's def overkill for my slow ass
I'm worried about my Galfer lines not fitting, and know that I'd have to at least replace the hose between the reservoir and the M/C. Buying new lines again would suck and would ruin the deal.
--I thought I heard of some people crossgrading to a different OEM master cylinder, and swear I saw pics on this board...but can't find details on that anymore. Am I just thinking about the ZX6/ZX14 calipers?
I guess my main questions are, is the M/C the wrong way to go? If I go Brembo, will my lines still fit with their custom Banjo bolt? Isn't there an OEM option that has better performance?
