R6 Owners, Question -- Not a joke - September 10, 2008, 05:57 PM

To anyone who owns a 2007 R6: What kind of front brake master cylinder comes stock on those? Is it radial? Worth a crap? I found one on ebay for cheap and am thinking of frankenbiking it onto my 04 zx10r along with af-mark SS lines and 07 CBR 1000rr calipers. Thanks!

Its a radial.... not bad for a stocker, but also not Brembo

It's decent but much better can be found on the aftermarket


When I came to, the general back-alley ambience of the suite was so rotten, so incredibly foul. How long had I been lying there? All these signs of violence. What had happened? There was evidence in this room of excessive consumption of almost every type of drug known to civilized man since 1544 AD. What kind of addict would need all these coconut husks and crushed honeydew rinds? Would the presence of junkies account for all these uneaten french fries? These puddles of glazed ketchup on the bureau? Maybe so. But then why all this booze? And these crude pornographic photos smeared with mustard that had dried to a hard yellow crust? These were not the hoofprints of your average God-fearing junky. It was too savage. Too aggressive.

Yes, I'm aware that brembo is the best. If someone wants to give me the brembo 19x20 or $400, I'll gladly put it on. I'm just wondering if the radial MC on the 07 R6 is worth spending, oh I don't know, say $40 shipped on. Seems like it would be ok.

Anyone know if it has a bleeder on it? My current linear Nissin does not, and if anything, I'd be improving things by going (a) radial, and (b) top-side bleadable.

You can get a banjo bolt that has a bleeder in it. I would try that first with SS lines.

The front master cylinder on '06-08' R6 is made by Brembo I believe. I have read that on the R6 forums, I can also confirm that my '06 R6 has the Brembo logo on the front master. I'm not sure if it is a Yamaha design or Brembo but it is manufactured by Brembo for Yamaha although I'm sure it's design varies from the aftermarket Brembo master cylinders.

I know for sure the '06-'07 R6 front master cylinders have a bleeder on them. I would also assume the '08s but I can't say for sure.

I have some goodridge lines now and am expecting to have some calipers off an 07 CBR 1K RR in a few days. (Yep, took the best thing the CBR has to offer. ) So you're saying buy said banjo/bleeder, cut away the one on the line now, and crimp on the new one? Or do I have to buy lines with the bleeder banjo already installed? I've never crimped banjos onto lines before so that's why I'm asking.

Nice, thanks!

EDIT: That link is for brembo MCs. The thread pitch is 1.0. Here's a link for Nissins, 1.25 thread pitch:
