Thanks Mark!
I am at just under $300 for the conversion counting the NOS factory brake lever that I just ordered on eBay. All the parts except for TDR's beautiful adapters are used eBay procured. The blue lever that is on there now is worn at the pivot point and not my cup of tea... I am looking at an NOS cap for the master cylinder as well as the chrome one looks out of place to me on a bike with no chrome except the grab rail.
I recommend this conversion to anyone with an RZ. Everything is pretty much bolt on other than the brake switch. I just cut the plug off the harness and stuck it in my stock master cylinder and put the correct ends for the R1 switch on the wires...I can't believe the difference in braking....

Use an FZ8 master cylinder if you want to keep your mirror, The R1 doesn't have a hole to mount the mirror. The FZ8 uses the same calipers, Brakes are superb..



Tacky- what's the bore size on that FZ8 master cylinder?

I believe it's a 16mm bore.

Not sure but if the bolt spread on the caliper bolts is 42mm it should fit.

LC and early RZ should be same. I haven't read if these are for the early or late RZ forks.

I did this conversion back in September and kept meaning to post about it. I can't recommend this upgrade enough, what a dramatic difference. :smt007 Per a suggestion further back in this thread, I went with the FZ8 master, calipers, and hoses. It all bolted right up except for the union in the brake line where it splits from 1 line to 2. The angle of the fittings means it won't bolt directly in place where the RZ unit hooked up. I modified a simple L bracket from a hardware store. See pic. My solution doesn't look great, but then again, neither does the rest of my bike.

One word of caution if you're re-using the master mounted mirrors -- some of the FZ8 master cylinders have the threads for the mirror, and some do not. I can't tell if the threads are just capped off on some of them, or not drilled/threaded at all. So pay attention when purchasing and make sure the item your purchasing is the one pictured. I ended up using an H7 (I think?) headlight-type plug for the brake light wiring. Not a perfect fit, and not watertight, but it worked for me.

And as far as Tony's adaptor plates go -- top notch quality and perfect fit. Thanks again to Tony for making these adapters available, and to all who have posted on this conversion and shared their knowledge.
