Kawi MC on a GSXR - October 2, 2010, 08:49 AM

Has anybody replaced a GSXR master cylinder with a Kawasaki master cylinder to cure the brake fade issue? I heard it may be best to use the Kawi Nissan calipers also.

Check the banjo bolt specs. Suzuki used to use a different size and thread pitch than the other 3 of the big 4 makers. However, I don't know if that's still true. The last Suzuki I owned was a '95 Bandit that I sold a while ago.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

I don't even have enough posts to do a PM yet 8^) ... should be able to soon.

Ya, I've seen guys using the R6 or R1 (brembo light) MCs and sometimes with the yami calipers. Some guys use a 10 mm spacer in between the fork and yami caliber and some don't. That looks like the best way to go, besides brembo MC. I was trying to reuse my GSXR shorty levers and break lines ... so using the Kawi parts seem to be the way to go. Just haven't seen anyone doing it yet.
