    Default HELP:Master cylinder swap for 220 ?

    My brakes r not spongy. But still i got the brakes bled and the brake fluid changed but the problem persists. What i wanted to say is that in general the brakes on the 220s are hard to operate and offer less feel compared to the RTRs and the R15s. In 220 what i hv experienced is that i hv to use more force to pull the brake lever in whereas in the RTR i dont need that much force. My problem is that i hv very short fingers and the tip of my finger somehow manage to reach the brake lever which means that i cannot apply enough force to pull in the lever properly using the tip of my fingers. Whereas on the RTR i didnt face this problem. Basically i want to make the brake lever function like that in RTR where i hv to use less force to pull in the lever. Here iam not talking about the bite from the disc but the amount of force that needs to be applied to pull in the brake lever.

    My queries are:
    1)I would like to know if i put the master cylinder and front brake lever of the RTR on my 220 will the problem be solved .
    2) Do i need to change the caliper unit with that of the RTR as well
    3)Can the calliper unit of the RTR be bolted to the 220s shockers directly without any modification.

    Instead go for a shorter lever. you can find it in any local parts stores.

    the notches on the inside of the clutch levers on pulsar 180/200/220 are totally different. The functionality of the lever DOESNOT solely depend on the lever.

    I think he's talking about the brake lever and not the clutch lever
