The add above has been running in Roadracing World and Motorcycle Technology. Here is the story behind it.

WERA racing has allowed racers to replace brake master cylinders with similar units. For example: A non radial master cylinder can be replaced with another non radial master cylinder of the same bore size, or a Radial master cylinder with the same size (bore and stroke) radial master cylinder. This has been interpreted as allowing the Brembo Radial brake master cylinders to be used in place of the original Suzuki radial brake master cylinder.

The brake master cylinders were protested by racers NOT using brembo, as the brembo equipped bikes have noticeably better brakes. ( It was assumed that the Brembo mater cylinders have a larger bore and stroke)

I have a feeling that Walter might not like those too much, even for the 'unlimited' classes.

Walter is fine with them if your bike comes with a radial master stock. Provided you get as close to stock bore and stroke as you can.

CMRA, like Gabe said, is fine with them under those guidelines. This is not a new thing for WERA, they've had that rule in place for at least a couple of years.

I think Yoyodyneti is just using it to market and is doing a blitz right now.

You can search the WERA bbs and find all kinds of threads on this over the past couple years.

Too many to list

Even in CMRA it has to be the same B&S as OEM.
