Nissin Resevoirs on 910R

Does anyone else think it is odd to have Nissin Resevoirs on the 910 R, even though it has Brembo brakes. Doesn't that have sort of a "we had these so we used them" feel? Just curious if I am the only nut job who is bothered by that..

Doesn't bother me a bit. I believe it's a Nissin master cylinder actuating Brembo calipers in front. Only the brake rotors, pads and front calipers are Brembo. The rear is all Nissin. The brakes are fabulous in operation, that's what counts.

I know that you are right. I just thought it was odd, that's all. No worries, that's for sure. Stops on a dime!

I have to say that the Nissins on the 910S stopped pretty good as well.

I think it is only about the style of the reservoir.The Nissin is more stylish ....just change the covers so you dont see Nissin anymore

hehe..if it bothers you, you can put the stock Bembo round ones on. They are not very expensive.

Besides, lots of replacement aftermarket billet covers out there.

i strongly disagree with that. I think on the 910S, the brakes are the biggest weakness.

Biggest weakness? They're a bit wooden when brand-new, and the radials on the 910R are better for sure, but the S-model's warm up in time.

The standard Brutale brakes may have an acquired "wooden" feel to them, but they sure do the job as well as anything else. Brutes can do great stoppies.
