08-12 Yamaha R6 riders: I have a question for you.

What brand master cylinder is on your bike? Is there a difference between R6V and R6R?

There is the r6v(race) and r6s (street) but they don't make the r6s anymore.

Ooooh cool. Learn something everyday. I've always heard it referred to as the R not a V.

That is what I thought... but I ordered one off Ebay and it came it was a Nissin. I emailed the seller and was like... dude are you sure this is an 08-12 R6R/V. His reply was " This came off an 08 R6V. If it doesn't meet your application return it for a full refund" I just wanted to make sure I wasn't mistaken about what came on that model of bike. Thanks everyone.

I rode my bike to work and I just went out and looked at it. Front is Brembo and the rear is Nissin.. That's strange, mine is a 09 btw.

Yeah that was my understanding. The seller said he would give me a full refund and I got one from HoP/ Tony Ta. Shout out to him for always helping!
