Question Stock 675R Brembo Master Cylinder vs aftermarket Brembo RCS

Hello everybody,


I was on hiatus after I sold my last Daytona, but I'm back. Just purchased a 2016 675R.


I have a Brembo RCS on my track bike that I'm wondering if I should keep it and put it on the 675R (It's going to be my new track bike).


Is this a worthy upgrade? Basically, how good is the stock Brembo master?


I do not know myself because there is air in the lines of the new bike and they are very very soft right now so I definitely have to at least bleed them. So I don't want to go through the bleeding process to decide that I just should've replaced the master.


Appreciate anybody that has any insight.

Is it an RCS19? Yes, worth swapping over. The stock Brembo is better than most OEM stuff but the RCS is better.

Yes it is. And I originally had this on my first Daytona so I know fitament shouldn't be an issue.

Thanks for the feedback!

I am not a fan of the rcs 19 feels too soft and mushy. I prefer the stock brembo master. That being said my favourite would be the GP brembo master followed by the billet master brembo. I am going to try a galespeed 19x18 on my r1m this year see how that feels.

I run the GP mk2 19x18 on my race bike and found it much better than the stock master. Better feel, more responsive.

On my 2013 675R I always felt the stock was mushy and a little numb, no matter how many times I flushed and bled it. I was getting ready to bypass the ABS but thought I'd try the RCS19 RCS Corsa Corta and was so happy I did, even with it still plumbed for the ABS. Super fine brake control, my absolute favorite brakes of any setup and I really like the shape of the lever. I was able to keep the ABS and have the power and feel that I wanted. I eventually put the RCS17 on my Street Triple and got the same results (though that one was better to start with).

Please post your thoughts on the galespeed 19x18. I was just thinking about that master. I'm curious to know your thoughts.

Thanks

Several of my racing Buddies are using the Galespeed and rate them highly. They are better value for money too. At a glance you can see the quality manufacturing of the Galespeed, it is forged not cast as is the Brembo. Here in Australia they come in at the same price. You have to pay a lot more to get the forged Brembo Master Cyclinder.

I gotta say the build quality is pretty nice on the galespeed. I probably won’t test it for another month tho but will update with my thoughts.
