Brembo GP Billet 16x18 MC

Anyone have any experience with these? I'm looking to upgrade the master cylinder since I'm doing the brake side. I have one available to me that was taken off a 916 track bike but the owner said he didn't care for it. He's saying that it makes the clutch REALLY fast. As in, you could fully disengage the clutch with just a half inch of lever travel. Not enough modulation. I'm wondering if this is something I can get used to or is this a fast way to end up on my head?

I'm thinking fast clutch + triple digit torque + RapidBike LC, might equal a less than optimal experience.

That you still have to feather the clutch. Hence my concern.

I think you just answered your own question.

They are great for racing but becoming obsolete with the quick shift up and down IMO.

Guess I just saved myself some money then. I'll focus on the brake side. Thanks.
