Master Cylinder Replacement

Hey Guys,

Anyone by any chance installed the Brembo RCS15 Mastercylinder?? I so want to buy one, but have no experience with installing mastercylinder, so would like to know what is the challenge for me.

RCS15 is much too big for this bike. I have RCS17 on bike with two rotors. Installation is pretty simple, but I would highly suggest Magura 12mm.

as you love riding, you need to love you bike

It depends where you live. for instance you can get it here: https://www.amazon.com/Magura-210045.../dp/B06ZY8DP8L

but you need to also order Magura Mirror Clamp for HC1 Radial Brake Cylinder/Clutch Cylinder 2701162, for the mirror. Same with Brembo, one has to get such mirror clamp separately.

the magura MC is very well made, and installation is very simple. you just need to pump it a bit to get all the air out.

In which way you have difficulty with getting the first gear? what happens if you press down the gear lever? perhaps the clutch cable is too loose? As for the neutral, I did notice that one has to only very gently press the gear lever up, or else it jumps to the second gear.

Sometimes, I hit the clutch I wont get in 1st, I get into a "-".

Is it physically not going into 1st or is it just the "-" on the display? Might be the gear sensor??

actually, i tried. I still can roll in this mysterious "-th" gear. But does that mean the gear is not mating properly?
