Done and done. Bled out in 10 minutes. Test ride complete. Stops just like the Phoenix with 2 fingers from 95 MPH..
The fit and finish on the TDR adapters is superb....Thanks TDR!!! Bolted right on and was able to use my existing braided lines. The difference is night and day. As Mark Haase said careful application is necessary. I will try the R1 master cylinder when it arrives but it certainly is rideable and way better than stock as is....

Use an FZ8 master cylinder if you want to keep your mirror, The R1 doesn't have a hole to mount the mirror. The FZ8 uses the same calipers, Brakes are superb..

R1 master cylinder installed and bled. I decided to use the existing master cylinder mount bracket for the reservoir in the absence of any other brackets.... I used a long allen head bolts and spaced the reservoir out a touch with m6 washers so it doesn't rub against
anything. I had a nice new piece of John Deere diesel injector hose that I installed after I decided the mounting for the reservoir and the original hose was too short...
It took about 10 minutes to bleed out. All thats left to do is rewire the pressure switch end to adapt it to the R1 switch and it will be test ride time. I will also be ordering a stock lever replacement for the blue lever that came on the mastercylinder so they match...I found it interesting that it came with a double banjo bolt so apparently the R1 didnt have a splitter and ran two lines side by side out of the master cylinder. I was able to bolt the braided line installed on the RZ with a little manuvering...

Test ride complete... I am amazed at the brakes....
I wired up the brake light switch and after a short argument and a bit of dry lube said switch is functioning perfectly.

Done and done.
