Sure. The gsxr master cylinder on the liter bike is reported as a weak link by many racers. I upgraded the master cylinder to a brembo 19x18. The options when I did the upgrade were a 19x18, 19x20 and the Brembo 19 mm RCS that can be changed from a 19x18 to a 19x20 by rotating a screw.

If I had it to do over, I'd have the RCS. Not so much for the adjustability, but for the microswitch for the brake. I still ride my bike on the street and I've found that many times when I'm lightly on the brakes, the brake lights don't light up due to the lack of significant pressure on the banjo bolt pressure switch assembly. A few people who have ridden with me on the back roads have had some pucker moments following me into turns where I have slightly lowered my corner entry speed and they failed to notice. They have come in hot and scared themselves badly enough that the talked to me about it afterwards. There have been a steady stream of these available on the Wera forums for $299.00 btw.

I tried several different brake pads. Two different EBC pads gave me higher friction levels than the stock pads, but the wear rate was quite high and the pads were quite expensive. I went to Vesrah RJL pads and loved them. Great, great wear rate and the friction level on cold brakes was just fine for the street. I never got myself in trouble. I ran the RJL's for a ton of track days between June and November, and still hadn't worn the pads out. The RJL's cost about $90 to $100 for the front set. Now I'm running Vesrah SRJL XX pads. These are the really high dollar semi-progressive race pad. I got a helluva deal on them, but I think they are over $300 new. I've not yet decided if they are worth the extra money over the RJL's, I need more track days on them. I ran the XX's at MSRH a couple of weekends ago but the weather was so poor (cold track and then wind) that I never really got up enough speed to be hard on the brakes. Mostly 48's and 49's on Saturday and a fast lap of 50 on Sunday.

I upgrade the lines to stainless on both the front and rear. The front is a real necessity for riding the track to keep good brake feel across a wide range of fluid temperatures. Although many street guys do this upgrade, I think it's unwarranted unless you are crazy on the back roads. By crazy, I mean running up front when the fast guys are all out there. Rear stainless lines are for show. Totally unnecessary for the track or the street unless you are one of the rare cats that can use his back brakes effectively on the track.

Lastly, be sure to change out the brake fluid. From my race car days, I'm a fan of Castrol SRF. Outrageously expensive at $75 a quart, but I trust it implicitly. Motul 600, SuperBlue (Myers is a huge fan of this fluid, and it's the primary race fluid used by many Porsche teams) are also fine and much less expensive.

Myers once spoke very highly of another fluid that was German made but did not even have an English label.he claimed it was better that the Motul600.but also kindda hard to find,i believe many of the road racing euros use it so maybe those shops carry it.i used motorex 5.1 and had real good luck with it.i also swapped the front master on my GSXR for a brembo,however i used what the KTM suoerduke uses and it came with a micrswitch and a place for resevoir.now the bike stops on a dime and the feel is much better.
i also took the shims and cover off of my calipers.....

I think that's the SuperBlue fluid. I get it for free when I buy the racing brake part for the porsches. I just never use it, so I had built up a bit of an inventory.

Javi is running two of them and they are the . His hand brake feels better than when he was running the brembo. I hope to someday run a Magura also. He replaced his stock front brake master fo a Magura too.
