As most of our bikes irrespective of donor engine share braking, i'm interested to hear if any of you have found a rear master cylinder with integral reservoir?

The YB5's reservoir is an absolute pain to remove, but it has to be done to remove the battery tray, which has to be removed to get to the airbox!!

I found this neat idea, it is from a Honda CRF dirt bike, so the piston probably wont be sufficient for the road bike, but as a concept i like it, the pic is from the company who make the red anodised extender...

Brembo make a rear MC where both the inlet & outlet are threaded. It would be easy to make an reservoir adapter for these units. Another fix is to just run a bit of transparent tube from the MC inlet & use it as the reservoir. This is a common mod on race bikes & is very effective

Hi

For a rear caliper, not sure the m/c bore will be much different

All the best
