Re: Brembo RCS19 Install Help
If the Fren Tubo banjo bolt went to your OEM M/C, don't try to use it. The thread pitches are different as I mentioned already.
The reason the Brembo banjo bolt seems too long is because the banjo fittings on your Fren Tubos are narrower than OEM/other makes. Your options are to source a proper fitting banjo bolt with 1.0 thread pitch, file/cut/shave off a few threads on the Brembo banjo bolt, or double up on the crush washers.
I'm running the last option on my R6 now, but not sure how long I'm going to keep it like that. Might shave some threads next brake fluid change... or leave it if it's still holding up.
