Brembo 19x18 - Additional Parts Needed?

I am looking to get a 19x18 brake lever/master cylinder. Will it work with the same stainless lines that work with my stock brakes? Or do I need additional fittings? New lines? Brake light switch?

Jlove

The angle / position at which the lines connect to a radial VS a traditional are different so its possible you'll need different lines but don't sue me if i'm wrong
you will deffinately need a brake switch to accompany the radial. BTW this is whats nice about the zx6r MC swap as it has a switch that accepts the OEM connector and is the same color as the other control parts.

The banjo bolt fitting on the brembo m/c is of a different thread pitch. You'll need a M10x1.0mm pitch bolt for the brembo.

just installed mine couple weeks back... brad at superbike supply hooked me up ....the ss lines are at an angle like BD said... depending on the angle that you like your brake lever there'll be some fine tuning involved...i have a hydraulic brake light switch on mine which with the help of TreyZx10r(a member here on the site) we plugged right into the stock harness ... i'll explain in detail if you need me to... the color is not that bad... i'll try and get pics up

If you purchase from Dan Kyle, the Brembo will come with a brake light switch/double banjo bolt that won't have to be cut down or need extra washers to make it fit properly.

And even if you don't buy from him, you won't need to change your brake lines. My Galfer SBK lines for the stock '04 setup worked just fine. Heres a photo:

Just got my superbike lines. Bought the brembo 19x18 two weeks ago. Not the most impressed with the setup I got. Brad did give me a good deal (actually ordered though Mary). I made the assumption it was a bolt on affair. Made a bracket for the Reservoir not a big deal. I have the same reservoir, from my extra 954 RR parts. But the thing that sucks is the double banjo bolt is too long. So I will have to cut or find another. Just thought with everyone buying this setup it would be with a little less modification. Anyway if some has an idea what length of a bolt/switch I need hit me up.

Thanks, I took care of it. I cut the switch/banjo bolt. I didn't want to add extra washers, I figured this leaves a greater chance of seeping and it's kind of ghetto to me.
