I could not find THE definitive answer to this question, even after reading 75 or so posts. Here is the question:

I want to replace the master cylinder and front breaks with Brembo products. Are there "bolt on" replacements that require no fabrication? If so, what are the part numbers I need to order and what are some sources for the parts?

Thanks in advance....

Definitely not THE definite answer, but I looked into this last summer and the problem is that most Brembo calipers are not with the 108mm Japanese bolt spacing that Triumph uses, but the Italo/Euro one.

The lowest spec 108mm Brembo calipers I could find were 700+ euros A PIECE. This is pretty much where I decided to can the whole idea.

Caliper x 2 + Mastercyl + lines + misc spacers and supplies
= 1400 + 250 + 100 + 50
= 1800 eur minimum
= too freaking much for brakes.

Discacciati does cheaper replacement calipers in correct spacing, but I have never used them so cannot say anything about quality.

Edit. Oh, forgot to answer your question: yes, there are direct bolt on replacements. You just need a deep wallet, calipers with correct bolt spacing and suitable caliper spacers. Any Brembo shop should be able to sell you the spacers too. www.carpimoto.com is one if you want to order online.

Edit. Disclaimer: as I have not done the actual replacement, don't come crying back if something with the above specs does not fit after you have bought the stuff...
:-D

1800 euros = $2,343.60.

You could do a complete GSXR front end swap AND have the legs reworked by Thermosman for that price.

I've been scoping out ebay and there's a guy selling a pair for $500, which is an amount I would consider. However, even though he says they'll fit Japanese makes, he doesn't say what the bolt pattern is.

Hummmmm....OK, what about just a bolt-on option for a larger piston master cylinder?

well, that's kind of hard to answer if it made a difference because i never got to feel the stock brakes working properly. it feels great though (now).
lots of "feel" to the brake.

i bought mine from my dealer in SF.

Sorry to bring the thread back from the dead, however I thought you guys might want to know the new 1098 comes stock with 108mm brembo monoblocks. I have no clue wether the width of the rotors would be at all compatable. Also according to all reviews theyre incredible brakes and I plan on picking up a set as soon as I find some, along with a bilet gp master of corse!
