  1. Did anybody install RCS19 brembo on their 748,9xx
  2. I had one on my old 853 track bike, was a good mod.
  3. I had one on my 916SPS bitsa.
    Also had 4 pad Brembo’s, individual lines and HPK discs.

  4. I am just about to fit one to my 998 the second it arrives in the post. I'm hoping it will make a big difference!

  5. I fitted one a few months back.
  6. Don’t see the point of an adjustable master cylinder when Brembo recommend a 19 radial master cylinder for the all of the Ducati 916 family twin front disc. Don’t see the point at all. Andy

  7. Got one on my 853. It's a noticeable improvement.

    Fit some SBS RS pads too and you have as much stopping power as the chassis can cope with, IMHO.

  8. Thanks , was curious if they worked :ducati parts manager wasn't too sure
  9. May I ask, a noticeable improvement over what ? Andy
  10. Ian, did your brake lines fit, banjo bolt in the same position ? Aftermarket banjo bolt needed? Where did you get the bracket for the reservoir
  11. Hi mate. Got new lines made up from Hel as I wanted to use a brake line splitter fitted to the bottom yoke (after seeing andy’s @final_edition ’s set up. Just having 1 line coming off the front master is better IMO as that area’s already a bit crowded. Just used a single banjo bolt as I fitted the banjo brake light pressure switch onto the front calliper. Made the brackets up at work.

    Top photo shows the pressure switch fitted to the master. Moved it to the calliper after

    Cheers, Ian

  12. That's not an RCS but I'm sure it's the same arrangement.

  13. Yes, that’s it. Came off a 998rs IIRC. There’s no provision for a brake light switch.
  14. Thanks Ian

    I was looking at this setup to retain the or lines as I just got giodridge recently

  15. Everything is fitted, only issue I have come across is the Brake side, OÉ kill switch won't fit too, there is what looks like a stop pin on the underside of the bar

    Ducabike do a swith for the rcs but I will need to wire it into the oe plug

    Any ideas?



  16. How much are they charging for that?
    I got one very similar for my 1098 from wrs.com in San Marino for under 90€.

    The master cylinder should be inboard (to the left) of the kill switch normally. Then it would fit (it did on my 916 with RCS master cylinder).
  17. Thanks ricky

    I just threw it there for the picture, there is a pin in the underside of the handle bar, rcs don't have provision like the oe clamp to accept the pin, it's to ensure correct position , I was told you can pull the pin out with a pliers, was holding off till I researched it but ducabike do an rcs clamp with built in button, I taught I might have to get that, bolted it up for bleeding aand to measure master to reservoir argon line, I had to cut to measure
  18. I removed the location pin , no full lock the brake lever hits the Rev cluster ; will have to stay where it is and a Ducabike switch will need to be wired in
  19. I have a set of RCS on my 748; I ran into the same issue and ended up with different clipons to replace the stock ones. I went with Woodcraft ones, so always another option!
