Well, here it goes.
I've been researching what benefits one would gain from upgrading the OEM Master Brake Cylinder to a Brembo RCS19.
I'll try to summarize what I have been told, and heard from those "that use the 19RCS" and those "who install it."
I like the feel of the pulling the brake lever and "feeling" the progressive increase in braking force as I pull the the lever based on my need.
When swapping to a 19RCS the following comments are a summary of comments I got:
* Great initial bite then.... no feedback after that
* More instant (light switch on/off) bite/brake force - no smooth braking
* Many "racers" have tried the RCS19 and swapped back to the OEM
So, we all know Brembo makes the best when it comes to brakes, but when should one consider the 19RCS upgrade?
I don't want just to mark it on a spec list as "yup, got that one too."
What is the real benefit? Does it actually makes things better or does it increase your risk to tuck the front wheel?
So, hope to hear from all of you that have the RCS19, have tried it and went back to OEM, etc.
When does it make sense to do this upgrade?
Thanks for your responses in advance.
