Master Cylinders?!?!?!

Been a while since I've posted, been busy.

So the radial master that I had planned on getting is no longer available. That being said, I need a bit of advice.

Im lookin at a brembo master cylinder and im wondering about the ratio.

according to the brembo site
"A 20 ratio lever will give less travel and be harder, 18 gives more travel & is easier to pull. 16 is the easiest to pull and has the most feel & travel"

This has me wondering which one to get between the 20 and 18. I like to feel the brakes, ie no wooden brakes which makes me kinda weiry of the 20, but i also dont like a mushy lever. I just had Motorcycles Unlimited order me SS lines, good pads and fluid so all that play should be delt with very soon. This bike spends most of its time on the street with an occasional track day errrr night. I may be buyin somethin new soon so this may get turned into a track/girlfriend bike.

That being said, which MC would be the better option for me here?

Also are the brembo's pretty much universal? What I mean is I have a buddy who has a brembo that he used on his CBR and Im wondering if I can just change out the banjo bolt and use it on my GSXR.

get the 18.
A motorcycle is a joy machine. It's a machine of wonders, a metal bird, a motorized prosthetic. It's light and dark and shiny and dirty and warm and cold lapping over each other; it's a conduit of grace, it's a catalyst for bonding the gritty and the holy.
