BRAKING vs Accossato Radial master cylinder

Here's my dilemma... I am replacing the oem MC. I have found what I consider a great deal on both an Accossato and a Braking systems unit. Accossato has the reputation so Im confident that it will be an outstanding improvement, but I cant find any reviews of the Braking MC. Both are 19x18 and are forged aluminum.

I use the bike mostly on track, but it is street legal and I do ride it on the street as well.

The Braking unit is $188
It has an integrated reservoir and includes a brake light switch! Both are a huge plus for me because the bike is still street legal, and I no longer have the oem reservoir.

The Accossato unit is $225
It does not include a brake light switch and does not include a reservoir. The accossato reservoir kit is $60
It does however include a free set of front Galfer braided lines, but I already have galfer lines on my bike, so its not a huge plus for me.

Anyone that has experience with Braking MC's your please share!

So what do you guys think I should get?

Re: BRAKING vs Accossato Radial master cylinder

I've only seen Accosato on actual racebikes, so I would go with that over Braking.


But I'd still take Brembo over both, you can find Brembo for the same price as the Accosato.

The best price I found for the Brembo was about $300. And since everything I've heard suggests the Accossato is totally comparable I can't really justify the price difference.

Re: BRAKING vs Accossato Radial master cylinder

pass on the braking. check out PT Tuning Billet radial master. i ran a 19x19 for 3 years on my k3 600 track bike. LOVED it. awesome master. late braking and no issues ever wiht that. i did run SS lines, vesrah rjl pads, and ATE fluid. im actually going to buy another one, as i sold that one wiht my track bike. they even offer a brake light switch.
