I took a rubbermount 1/2" master cylinder and put it on my 2002 (with the 4-pot fixed caliper). Perfect ratio.

that's just an oversized rotor and adapter, you're still using the same caliper and pads,



I'd recommend doing the Brembro brake upgrade. it's the simplest most effective way to ensure quality two finger braking.















inspiration came from this thread.

I have a 4 piston caliper like harley506d's I got from another member here for free. Looks brand new but needs a rebuild.
