    Anyone know what bike the Nissin front brake that Fuji and Bou run comes off of?

    I would think LowPSI might be familiar with that setup?

    He definitely runs a nissin master cylinder. I haven't gotten a look at the caliper, but if it's Braktec I'll eat my hat.

    Fujinami runs a Nissin master cylinder, Bou runs a Brembo. Not sure on the part numbers of either.

    Yep. And Pep Banyeres would know what they're running better than just about anyone.

    I have seen the hose at both H & D and JBanyeres depending on timing. Both for the AJP and Braktec.

    Not sure if it helps, but Venhill can build what you might need pretty reasonable.

    There is a new one on ebay UK right now that comes with the fitting for the cable. From Hansen Racing. I lost the link.

    Thanks, It will take me a few days after I get the M/C just to go through my cables to see what I have. I am not in a hurry since I gave up on the Broken Tek 8 months ago. My AJP is working fine, but after riding my sons TRS which is better then riding the Gold edition I know a better brake is in my future.

    Nissin MC conversion is a popular fix, for crap Brembo front brakes on KTM bikes.

    Wonder what the piston diameters are on the 395,00 € Brembo, and the 250,00 € Nissin? Anything bigger than 9.5mm can make for a firmer lever and less power (depends also on pivot-to-pin distances and where the finger falls on the lever). At those prices it's no wonder the BrakTec is OE.

    Really? :hmmmmm Who is doing this? Does Cody Webb know about this mod?

    KTM is actually well known for having the gold standard front brake on just about any comparison test that you read and I've never had a bit of trouble with any of mine. I suppose that anything can be improved and I'm sure that some guys tinker with about anything though.
    There are some that I have heard about that couldn't bleed their brake, but they are hopeless souls.
