    Same here. Along with that stupid brake light pressure button. I would imagine when you change out the brake lever it will not fit in that slot were the button is that activates the brake light when depressed.

    Im probably over anylizing this. Once I find the matching MC for my 04 sporty im just gonna buy it and figure it out from there.

    Forget the front brake switch. As long as the switch for the back works, who cares. I never touch my front brake unless I am on the back already anyway.

    And if anyone cares to know, the knockoffs from this guy will not work for what we need. http://stores.ebay.com/woodymoto

    Brake lights (on my 04 sporty at least) will not work unless that front switch is connected.

    I saw this setup at the Ephrata PA Bike breakfast a few weeks ago, on an old Panhead chop.


    I chickened out on my Triumph. I bought an aftermarket XS650 front brake MC from "Mike' XS" and ran ebony Goodridge lines/fittings (bought the line too damn long...)

    Any of the modern sportbike radial style will work......and..................................... .they usually come with an electric brake switch that is easy to wire to the lamp!! I use one off a zx14 (only because it was the cheapest one on ebay) and the stopping force is crazy! set up is a sportster single front caliper on a XS650.

    I got mine off a sport bike. It's a Nisin, off a GSXR, I think.

    You pull the stock master cylinder and replace it with a piece of plastic tubing. Instructions are earlier in the thread.

    All this tech is about is changing the reservoir. If you already have a hydraulic front brake, and are happy with your current brake handle/control, all you are gonna mess with is the reservoir, nothing else.

    Nicely done, but I think a harder plastic would look a little better as oppossed to seeing it vibrate in front of you, blasting done the road.

    ok so if I wanted to really change out my front brake system then i would need the matching disc brake for the caliper....then the matching master cylinder? because a lot of the sport bikes have dual front brakes i am seeing a lot of "sets" on ebay with those dual brakes.....how are you guys putting together these set ups? i love the idea of having that small master cylinder...
