Default Gsxr master cylinder

Has anyone put a front master cylimder/lever assembly on their Kat? Will it be a direct swap? I like the separate reservoir from the assembly.

It's not really an upgrade, but I understand the "want the look" option. You may find a couple of fighters have done it, but as a general course of action most Kats here would not have. No reason too - IE, not an upgrade.

The only real questions is ... bar size, mounting point for the brake lines. I believe the GSXR uses the same size bars. So if you wanted, shouldn't be a problem to swap the master and reservoir and just buy lines that will match the mounting points for either end.

So... simple fix really, just check those few points.
