Ducabike Radial master cylinders question

Has anyone heard or read any reviews on the Ducabike radial brake and clutch master cylinders? It says the brake is 19x19mm and clutch is 16x14mm. Does this mean they will work with a 1299 Panigale? Or will anything else need to be changed? And if these do work with a stock panigale and I decided to upgrade to better brembo calipers which would be the the ones I could go up to and not go any further?

If sheís abs, like mine, EVERYTHING will be a problem. Iím doing Brembo GP billet pumps with Beringer calipers all around a Beringer rear master, so I caught your post literally the night Iím gathering the endless data. The master you need to see the bottom of them, but itís probably ok for the swap, depending on fitting angle needed. Also you need a brake switch, I didnít see any mention of them accepting one, doesnít mean they donít. You can also run a banjo pressure switch. The big problem, is the reservoir. They fit my mmís of clearance stock, on the arm off the Brembo. Take that away, itís Amazingly difficult to place them (it in your case) correctly. Calipers if the fittings are in the top corner with an angle youíre ok, if not itís a pain. All this is tough because nobody has measurements or has done much with the abs apparently.

All this said if you need measurements from the abs pump out I should be able to do some math and help you.

Not recommended on 1199/1299 Panigale with the Brembo M50 calipers, it's too big of a piston diameter and will leave you with a lack of feel. The M50's are designed to work with a 16-17mm master cylinder, which is why the RCS17 is the most common "upgrade" master for them. You can swap the calipers to a different Brembo, the older M4 Monoblocks off the 1198 for example, or go "old school" to the 4-pad calipers from the even older Superbikes, which are still my favorite OEM caliper. Or if you want to upgrade, go to a set of Brembo GP4-RX calipers or other Brembo (or other brand) racing caliper.

I have M50's on my H2 and 1290 Super Duke and added the RCS19 and it works great. Going to add one to my 1299SA. the only sticky part will be the reservoir for it. the way they mount vs. the stock master cylinder is way diff. the RCS19 does have the micro switch for the barke light.

Yeah the RCS reservoir brackets will definitely not work just no room for clearance with bodywork/stay. . I make a carbon bracket kit strictly for the RCS masters on Panigale.
