I'm looking to update my front brake reservoir and also my clutch one too.

Without embarrassing myself. Would a clutch M/C and reservoir from a YZF750 work on my exup? Are they all a standard fitment?

I've already bought the front brake M/C from an R6, but it didn't come with a reservoir. I'm on the hunt for one of those, and I'm hoping to go for the smaller reservoir. if I can find one that will do the job. nod

They should all the handlebar and brake lines but. Check the bore size of the master cylinder (its normally cast on the underside of the main body) it will be either imperial or metric.
I have been using a 19mm bore brembo master cylinder with blue spot calipers from an 03 R6 and that's a significant improvement in power and feel.
Don't go smaller than standard as you run the risk of not having enough braking force when you really need it. The bore size makes a big difference as the pressure is dependent on the area of the bore and this is squared the radius of the bore times pi.

The YZF750 clutch lever assembly fits and works fine on the EXUP, the only issue is where and how to mount the reservoir, when I fitted mine, I drilled and tapped a M6 hole in the front face of the top yoke and mounted it there, it works fine but itís a bit fiddly positioning it to clear the fairing bracket and also for a clear view of the clocks.

Earlier this year I fitted a mount assembly that allows a variety of positions.

Any brake master from a bike that uses the blue or gold spot calipers will work on the EXUP, there are quite a few smaller reservoirs available on eBay, you just have to trawl through it a bit to find what you like.

Iíll take a photo of mine tomorrow and point you in the right direction if you like any of what I have fitted 👍

Hereís a few images of mine, Iím not sure if theyíll help much but here you go.











I havenít fitted one of these, but I may do as they look quite small and nicely finished ?

Sorry Iím slow in replying but at the moment Iím spinning more plates than a circus act. 😁 Thanks for your replyís lads and yes those photos are very helpful Chris. Iím going to have to drill & tap two holes in my top yoke so I can mount the two brackets on. The mounts you have on yours Chris look a good choice and Iíve seen them on flea bay. Iíve got all winter to get all the bits ready to do the conversion next March.

Iím going to an auto jumble at Rufforth near York Dec 4th. They have everything you could wish for and itís a good day out.

Thanks again for your replyís.
