dual circuit brakes

Post by flat4fanatic » Tue Nov 01, 2005 12:35 pm

Is it a fairly straight swap to chance a split master cylinder for a dual circuit bay one?
Putting a whle new system in the split so though i might as well upgrade if possible.
thanks

It is a doddle. You need an adapter plate, a new mc (obvioulsy) and reservoir, and some brake fluid.
CSP do the adapter, or if you are a bit handy on a lathe I could send you some 'drawings' - it's not difficult...

i thought you could only upgrade to a bay type split cylinder if you were going to disc brakes, as they provide different pressures to front and back.

There are only 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary and those don't.

Yep I ran dual circuit with drums for 2 years till I saved up for the disks, no problems at all, just more confidence in the brakes! PS Ben, great to meet you at BB, had a great cruise down with the BD boys 8O 8)

Instructions are done, but my home internet is down at the moment so I can post them up. If anyone wants an early copy - send me a mail with your return email and I'll send them direct from work

I read a US site the other day saying that the last of the splits in 67 had dual circuit - is that a load of cojones?
