Aftermarket front brake - Brembo 19 RCS

Hi All, My original front brake was feeling a bit manky, like the seals in the master cylinder were expanding ?. Most riders would not notice or care, but I have a thing about front brakes. So, I broke down and brought a Brembo 19 RCS kit :D https://www.jwmotoparts.com.au/store/p674/Brembo_19_RCS_br...

Re: Splitting the cases !

They use valve levers. A bit like rockers.

Re: Splitting the cases !

Such a crap design replacing buckets every 50000 miles :(. I suppose that is why the design never got carried to the LC8 V2 ?

Re: How to rebuild clutch Master cylinder

Just serviced/revamped clutch system. New Oberon slave, and new 163 piston + seal kit. Fitting nylon washer and circlip in master cyl I found to be a very difficult job. I ended up removing master cylinder so that barrel was facing upward.

Re: Exhaust Heat Shields

Yeah, I got mine black powder coated to hide the after market cans (cops, defects etc). I didn't replace the insulation. Didn't need to. The straight thru cans don't get that hot.

Re: Fuel reserve light issues

From my photos of servicing my pump twice, this is the closest pic of the sensor.

The sensor has very delayed reaction. It takes some time for it to react. So, keep that in mind.

Re: Anyone knows of an aftermarket fuel cap?

Thanks crapchicken (if you're still around ?). As per your advice, I got the Rally Products fuel cap assembly.

The postage turned into a bit of a cluster f***, but that's another story. In the end, I got the product and it's fitted, so happy. No more smelling like a WWI aviator :lol:

Re: Pulsating front brake/on off throttle

Hi Rakamora I first would be checking for seized front brake caliper pistons. What's the pad wear like ? Fitting a straight thru can and remapping makes a big difference. Removing the emission features and following Kevxtx's mod #10 or mod #20 configurations makes the bike run how it's supposed to. ...

Re: TPS Adjustment for dummies (Me)

Another thing I think that could cause it. Back fires can blow off the throttle bodies (this is very very rare - it happened after I did a rebuild and sprayed too much WD40 in the clambers). The end result is air leaking into the intake causing high revs. Check that the throttle bodies are seated on...

Re: TPS Adjustment for dummies (Me)

I'm not sure what it could be, but I would be looking at the TPS sensor itself or the electronic idle adjuster (the servo at the front of the throttle body). I measured the resistance using a multimeter. I unplugged the TPS sensor. Determined the ground conductor, then connected the multimeter to th...

Re: TPS Adjustment for dummies (Me)

Hi Fin. I might not be able to help you, because I completely removed my 2nd butterflies on my throttle body 2 years ago :lol: (sorry, I thought you wanted the primary TPS voltages). However before I removed the 2nd flies, I measured TPS resistance settings so I could put them back (if I ever get de...

Re: TPS Adjustment for dummies (Me)

Hi Fin Silly question, but have you ever done a 15 minute reset ? (do the reset when engine is cold) Let me get back to you with my TPS parameters. On my bike, the throttle body vacuum sensors were out by about 10hPa due to sensor tolerance. I measured the error by connecting the sensors to a single...

Re: Clutch Slave

My Oberon arrived just as I was typing. I'm also trying to source the Magura 163 10.5mm master rebuild kit. The only dealer I can find is in Australia and won't have any in stock for another month.

So practical and convenient with the panniers. As one of my friends said: It looks like a sensible bike, but it's not :D
