    Not sure if I am going recall or straight for the upgrade but all the info is helpful. The Brembo options arent as expensive as I thought.

    If you don't want the recall master, you can go ahead and do it, then give it to me when you put the Brembo (or whichever) on. ;)

    Make sure you are using a good fluid that won't boil so quickly like the OEM.
    I think most of us are using the Motul 660 which is a High Performance brake fluid with very high dry boiling point of 617F (325C) and wet boiling point of 400F (204C). For all types of hydraulic brake and clutch... just saying...
    Here is the comparison between the 600 and 660 "RBF 660 Factory Line features a dry boiling point of 325C, higher than RBF 600 Factory Line. ... It maintains a higher dry and wet boiling point of 272C and 185C respectively compared to DOT3&4 and DOT 4 brake fluids.

    That's a very good point! I had assumed that was cleared already, but I shouldn't assume anything

    Oh yes, good mention but one of the first things I did when I bought the bike last year. Flush, replace, bleed, repeat. I use Maxima Race, similar specs to Motul but been using the brand for years in MX and scramble.

    Getting MC rebuilt under recall this weekend as Steve said and will decide if I go aftermarket once I have a chance to compare.
