    Monster S4R front master cyl seal kit

    As above, if there is anyone who is aware of what is required to conjure something up for this, please advise. I havejust about given up looking. Seems my best option will be to dismantle and try to get the individual selas or as close to...or just buy a new m/cyl...
    Fuckin' ducati's and brembo! Cnuts!

    Yep, done the forums thing, frustratingly couldn't find much in the way of actual part numbers or kits. Apparently the best way to approach it is get ktm parts as brembo and ducati made the descision to not supply kits for their master cyls. Only for the older stuff I think

    We never found a kit when I raced a 749. Throw it out and get a decent one.

    Thanks, but not sure what you mean...throw away the brembo and replace it with... or do you mean that particular unit? Far as I know, all the newish stuff has no backup either, it is all just new units.
    Pisses me off, throwing away perfectly rebuildable gear!
    Anyhow, I bought a new unit for less than $300 so not too bad...that includes the brake lever as well!

    I mean throw out the junk factory one, and get a decent one.
    I went to a standard Gixxer thou one. Most important thing is to get the same size bore and offset.

    Yep, I bought a new one in NZ for $280, unlike Drew, I don't have an issue with it, just that it is weeping. It is 14 yrs old and has sat outside for a bit so not totally surprising. I always thought Brembo stuff was regarded as being pretty good quality wise? Certainly seems to be the choice for a lot of top end machines...

    Brembo, like any manufacturer, make factory fitted parts to spec. In this case, no where near as good as their high end stuff.

    Same as the Ohlins fitted to Ducati from new. Its piss poor on NZ roads or tracks till ya get it rebuilt. And even then it's still lower end.

    Ok, thanks for that Drew, tho to be fair, you probably are asking a bit more of your gear than a plodder like me!

    True, I only ever had a Ducati as a race bike.
