Also purchased a brembo front master cylinder and compared to what I had it’s made a huge difference again.

Evening Benny, Out of interest, what does the 2007 Fireblade rear brake master cylinder give you that the standard Firestorm master cylinder didn't? as it appears they have the same bore size of 14mm,

Purely the fact that I can add the reservoir bottle to the master cylinder, looks neater in my personal opinion

Grrrrrrr , nice sunny afternoon so I thought I’d go for a little ride and enjoy the old girl 4 miles setting off and the speedo dies lift the seat to see if anything has come loose and I can smell burning, bloody regulator rectifier has packed up 😡😡.
