Brembo RCS19 Install Help

I acquired the RCS 19 from Riders Discount and it came lightening quick. The problem I've encountered while installing is the gap that the Brembo provided banjo bolt has. I've attached a picture to help with the explanation process. It seems I cannot tighten down the bolt any more. I have fren turbo brake lines installed. Can anyone suggest a method to fix this? Did I receive the wrong Banjo bolt? Or am I doing this wrong? Thanks!

Re: Brembo RCS19 Install Help

Does the banjo bolt that came with the Fren Tubos not work? If its the same size and thread pitch i would just use the stock one or fren tubo one. And you should only need 3 crush washers, it looks like you have 2 stacked together under the the head of the bolt trying to make up the differance.

Yeah, I tried using the Fren Tubo one and it didn't screw in. I originally used the washer, line, washer, line, washer on the banjo but it didn't work.

(I was helping him do the install)

Re: Brembo RCS19 Install Help

Somethings not right, Looks like your doing it right. Either its the wrong bolt or it not threaded deep enough. You should never have to stack banjo washers.

Yeah, that's what I figured as well.

Re: Brembo RCS19 Install Help

Sherman,
Look at the length of the Fren Turbo bolt vs the Brembo one supplied in the kit. It's too long.



Brad (Riders Discount) PM'd me back and said he will get with the Tech's first thing in the morning.

Re: Brembo RCS19 Install Help

The thread pitch for the aftermarket Brembo M/Cs are 1.0, while OEM is 1.25.

That's odd that your Fren Tubos aren't installing properly. Normally this happens with Galfer and Goodridge lines because their banjos are thinner, in which case you'd have to use their banjo bolt (with proper thread pitch) in order for it to fit properly.

I have Fren Tubo Type 4s on my 09 R1 with a 19RCS and it fit properly, but I have a Ti banjo bolt. Can't remember if the Ti banjo bolt had the same specs as the Brembo bajo bolt though.

After doing some research on the R1 Forum, some members on their doubled up on crush washers. On my 09 R6, I doubled up on washers with the Galfer brake lines. Current set up is: Bajo bolt, two crush washers, left brake line, one crush washer, right brake line, two crush washers, 19RCS M/C. I haven't had any issues with it so far. Wish my bikes were here with me, otherwise I'd post some pics. Mind you went and bought new crush washers prior to install.

Edit: Here's one thread from the R1 Forum - http://www.r1-forum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=296084 You can even file down a few threads on the Brembo banjo bolt if need be.

Re: Brembo RCS19 Install Help

If you are stuck on using the Fren Tubo bolt then I would recommend cutting some off the end of the threaded side. But now after looking at it, the thread patterns don't look the same. I hope you didn't fudge the threads inside the brembo...
