Re: Brembo 12mm master cylinder with single F08 caliper

I have a Brembo 12mm master cylinder with single F08 caliper and noticed that when I finally managed to fully bleed the system the lever movement / travel once the brake pads have been pumped onto the disc is minimal. Is this normal for this combination? Would a 11 mm master cylinder produce a litt...

Hey Spub,
Thanks for the info on Rusteco. I've got a 1964 CA95 150 Honda on the stand as a winter project now and that might come in real handy.

Hey X,
Some general settings for bolt sizes would be:
6mm bolt 0.8-1kg/m (5.78-7.23 ft lbs)
8mm bolt 1.5-2kg/m (10.8-14.5 ft lbs)
10mm bolt 2-2.5kg/m (14.5-18 ft lbs)
Remember that sprocket bolts don't have to be super tight. They just have to stay tight. (mild thread locker)
Hope this helps,
Dean

Chris, I hope this does not come off as a thread hijack. Since the sludge plugs came up on this thread I would like to know if you could, in fact, get to and clean out the sludge traps effectively through the front cylinder opening? You indicated that they are accessable through the front cylinder o...

Frank, It sounds as if you have the equipmnet and knowledge to have taken the crankshaft apart. And I assume you know all of the tolerances for the crank. A workshhop manual makes it sound as if you can make adjustments after it is pressed together. I have no personal experience with this technique....

Gum, If you go back to the main page and look under the Technical Info section you will find a manual for the 860. It will answer most of what you are requesting. If you remove the square case covers from the 860 the engine itself looks a lot like a 750. Most of what you will find inside of the 860 ...

Can you take a photo of the bracket and a photo looking into the cone?

Martin,
That is very interesting. It even has the part number for a left side Conti.
How about this? What does the bracket look like? That might help narrow this down.

Gum, I just read an article in a British Magazine (Motorcycle Sport and Leisure Nov 2008) about Ian Gowanloch and in the article he says that he went to Italy to source parts for Ducatis. While there he went to a supplier of centerstands, fairing brackets, and front mudguards and bought the lot of w...
