I have a 2017 1000RR and am wandering if I can use my Brembo 19x20 master on my bike. Not to familiar with the Honda calipers, I used this on my 899 Ducati with the M4 calipers.

Thanks very much that will save me buying a lever now, mine was toast.

Only downside of that master cylinder is that Brembo glued the retaining ring in place so it's very difficult to ever rebuild it.

Yeah. It's intentional as they don't want you to rebuild their "budget" master cylinder. Straight from the product catalog...

Is your bike a tokico equipped model? If so, then this is not the ideal size master for the calipers, but if it is anything like the 2016 tokico calipers i am using on a 03 zx6rr, which should be paired with a 17x18/20 master, you most likely want the 19, if you want a firm lever.

Thankyou, I know it's all to do with piston size so instead of being lazy as I have been I will dig in. Thanks again

Which brake lines did ya’ll go with?
I have the Galfer superbike lines on mine. Two lines down from master cylinder wrap around forks and into caliper. The flare connection means you don't have to mess with copper washers every time the calipers come off.
