I've been careful and haven't over tightened anything down for this very reason

If you can hold both the bolts together and mesh the threads and they look pretty uniform, then you should be good. I personally don't see anything wrong with double stacking the crush washers. They should seal off on each other just fine.

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.

I did the washer method; I'm not sure if this looks right. Perhaps Im just paranoid?

Thanks for the advice. I stopped immediately when I found out the fren banjo bolt was not going to take!

I thought the same thing when I did it. Bled the brakes and had no leaks so I took her for a spin and still no leaks.

No problem, would really suck if you were to cross thread your new M/C.

Re: Brembo RCS19 Install Help

I had the same issue with mine. You might want to change your setup based on this post in my thread...

Yes.. been there. Done that.
I ended up just getting the correct sized bolt for it from Galfer.

Interesting, I read to double up under the banjos, not in between. I'll have to see if there's any issues with my setup over time.
