I've started doing track days with my 05 rr and since I'm braking harder and later for turns I've noticed after a 20 min session they start to feel squishy. I'm looking to upgrade everything. I need a brembo master cylinder, braided lines (front&rear), possibly rotors (front&rear) and possibly calipers. I want to start dropping my lap times and get started racing but I want to upgrade my brake system before I start pushing harder. I'd also like smoked, clear, or red braided brake lines. Thanks for looking.

Rotors and calipers aren't useful until you're running alien times. What pads do you have now? Pads are the #1 element in braking fade; non-race pads will fade pretty quickly. Someone is selling an Accossato master cylinder in the classifieds for a great price which would be a nice upgrade.

I'm using ebc double sintered h pads or whatever pads are one step down from their race pads

What brake fluid are you running?

I run Motul RBF 600 With Brembo SC Compound, standard everything else including the lines; no brake fade whatsover and we have a 230ph to 70 kph braking on the back straight and only 1m 14-16s lap time so not much time for the brake to cool down.

Change your fluid.. Looks like you're cooking it.



That's about the same kind of braking that we do.



Give the Motul RBF600 a try; they're not that expensive.

Ok I'll give it a try. I'd like to upgrade everything before I change the fluid. So if anyone sees these parts before I do Id appreciate it if you post the link or tell me where it's at. Thanks again guys for the help. I just need to figure out this skipping issue I'm having. Read my other post and see if you guys can help.

A lot of 03-06 riders do the upgrade to the 07+ master cylinder and cutoff switch, it's a nice upgrade for cheap and you get the better fuel cutoff switch which allows for more bar configs.
