I've notice no noticable change (good or bad) in braking performance as far as I can tell after about 7 desert races and enduros running this setup. Good luck.

I'm pretty certain the 02 brake pedal and hose will bolt up to the 03 master cylinder even though the part numbers are different. It looks like the change in the caliper design had more influence on the hose bend on the caliper end than the master cylinder end.
You can do part number comparisons for different year bikes here:
One more thought. I ground off the mounting tab on the subframe for the old brake reservoir, but I don't recall if this was required to allow for clearance for the newer one piece master cylinder or not. I have since upgraded my subframe to an aluminum unit off a later model YZ, so I can't tell for sure any more.
Here's a couple of pics for you:
99 WR with 03 master cylinder and 04 YZF subframe
99 WR stock master cyinder config (with added brake light switch)
Hope this helps.
