And finally....

Rode 130~ish miles today with the new brakes. The smoke's let out of the pads and the rotors are properly seasoned.

Truthfully, I probably could have stayed with the stock master cylinder. The 11/16" piston makes for a very firm lever with reduced travel (which I like), but it probably wouldn't have been horrible with a 9/16" piston. Though the roads were in lousy shape, I felt much more comfortable braking later into corners than normal.

If one was to do this with their stock master cylinder, it's a reasonably inexpensive proposition that pays HUGE dividends.

The 9/16 master cylinder will work better for you Russ.

I've still got the old one lying around. I may clean it out and see how it feels at some point.

I went with take offs in good shape and I have about 300.00 with two rotors.
