Does anyone know if/where you can get a kit to rebuild a Brembo master cylinder? A track crash f'd mine up to where the lever won't return to normal position on it's own.

Thanks!

Thanks man looks like it's the same kit yoyodyne sells for a couple bucks cheaper! So here's the deal, I bought a used 19x20 from a guy this winter and never had a chance to test it until yesterday. When I pull the lever in it stops the wheel but then does not return to open unless you push the lever forward. Will this push rod replacement kit solve my issue?

Did the lever move nice and free before you bled the brakes?..the pin that holds the lever on might be a little sticky or to tight..

Those of you with the high tech RCS masters, be aware that Brembo does not offer rebuild kits, you have to send it back to italy for a whopping 190.00 , big thread about it on tye WERA board not long ago.

:+1: Ya i read that on wera as well thats why i bought the 19X18 plus it was a good deal especially with the micoswitch for the brake light i'm not a big fan of the banjo pressure type switches i have one on the rear and it's been working fine so far though..

No it was sticky before I bleed the system but now that reminds me, I just had the lever powder coated so there might be excess powder coating I need to remove

Good call...I'm thinking the powder coating on the lever is to thick for sure ..try and shave the coating off with a razor blade where the lever mounts in the master..that most likely solve your sticking lever problem...

I shaved the powder coat tonight and it didn't affect anything? There is definitely something up with the piston
damn that sucks bro...looks like your going to have to take it apart and see whats causing the piston to stick..with the lever off will the piston stick when you push it in?..maybe the return spring in the master is collapsed?..it will be at the bottom behind the piston
