Hey well im in the process of fixing my bike from a minor incident at 50 mph 2 weeks ago on a road.
Well i saw this yz 450 have a cbr 1000rr front brake master. Has any one done it here and what did they need to make it work.

Im making my bike into a supermoto. Im making a custom dash for my vapor an my other buttons and i just think it would be a cool setup to have a cbr brake master.I might try to use the caliper to.

It's very hard to get a 4 piston caliper to clear the spokes on a super moto . I don't really see and issue with using a cbr master other then it's a bit huge . I would suggest a brembo style master , one can be had for cheap on e-bay .

I'm fairly sure all the stock banjo bolt and washers fit

I'll bet it will be very touchy . being that it puts out enough volume to work two calipers . I'll bet it will pull in kind of hard. it's most likely somewhere around a 20 mm bore. just as a guess.

My wr is a supermoto . it just does not have the monster brake yet. I have not needed more then just a 320 front rotor yet. :thumbsup: so I've do a little research.
