17' SP and Brembo RCS Master

I just installed a Brembo 19x18, which greatly improved the brakes. I ran into one catch however. The master mounting is less than perfect. Due to the factory clip-on having an indention/key/recessed notch for the factory master, the Brembo doesnt seat well. It's basically too wide. I'm asking who else has used the factory clip-on with the Brembo and what they did to seat the master cylinder properly to the bar. The obvious answer is to try and grind the clip on keyed area wider or put aftermarket clip-ons on the bike. The latter I'm not really interested in, for multiple reasons.

Thanks,

I have not. The only solution I can come up with is to either put clip on’s on the bike, which I don’t want to do… Or I can grind off some of the surface on the clamp piece of the master cylinder. I’m not super excited about that either.

Ah, the great "I want to mod my 17' + but I want to keep it stock" debate...

Suck it up and grind that SOB to Kingdom Come... or just install clipons.... Resale value on 17' SPs and SP2s already tanked LOL You aint getting your money back anytime soon anyway

At first I thought the seam was the issue, now I see the bulging inside of the clipons is what you are referring to. I didn't have that issue on my 2013, so there must have been a change. Any chance you can loosen and slide over the throttle, etc a few mm?

I was thinking the same, move the kill switch/starter housing over a couple of mm's

Usually you can move the rest of the stuff over but yeah if that doesn't work it's a pain in the neck. Still, I'd probably just suck it up and do the clip ons rather than grind on the stock stuff.

Of course, changing the clip ons will probably lead to other minor headaches.

Exactly, either way I go is a PITA. I'll probably just grind the inside corner of the Brembo bracket to make it key into the factory clip-on.
