Brembo Master cylinder, dunlop slicks

Figure I try this before buying from misc. websites. Anyone out there looking to sell a Brembo Master? I'd even try another brand, if you feel like you get the same performance out of it. Also, looking for a new set of Dunlop slicks. Not interested in used tires.

Heard accosota mc is pretty good

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a Ride! ~Hunter S. Thompson

Don't want to derail the topic too much, but have you compared accosota to a brembo?

No. Just speaking with a track side vendor and was told it's a really good MC and is plenty capable for the skills of an advanced track day rider

There is a thread on here about this topic. The gist of it is that accosato performs pretty much just as well, but parts are harder to find, so if you ever need a rebuild kit or anything else for it you won't have much luck and usually have to buy another whole unit.

If you find a source for slick's or race tires (less than a year old) than STT please post it up.
I searched and no once came close other than eBay and that dealer said his were less than 10 years old. LMAO

I have a brembo master and and 08 nissin, one finger stoppies if not careful.

I haven't ordered from them yet, but Race Tire Service, DUNLOP RACING TIRES
seems to be a legit source. You bring up a good point though about the age. I'm probably going to call them and ask the age of the tires.

I asked the eBay seller for a date code, any date code. Wouldn't give me one.

Those tires look good, seems odd I can't find another source and they don't have other option's.

I've been running Cup's. Very pleased with them.

Hey race tire services is the main distributor for Dunlop race slicks/DOT. they put the D211 I just got at the racetrack like 2 weekends ago and are extremely helpful with question. Great customer service too!

I've had both Accosato and Brembo 19x20 master cylinders. The Accosato is every bit as good as the Brembo.

You could almost swear they were made by the same people, so much so that the lever pivot is interchangeable. I didn't get to check if the span adjuster cylinder thing was interchangable though. These two items seem to be made from stainless on the Accosato which makes it a bit nicer to look at.

The major difference between the two is that the Accosato is sealed with some kind of epoxy. If you want it rebuilt you need to send it off. I will add that a friend of mine has managed to remove the epoxy on his unit to inspect the rod after an off. He figured he didn't have anything to loose and upon looking he found the rod looked similar to a Brembo one. I bet they are compatible too. I can't say for certain though as the rod didn't get bent and he only needed to order the flip up bit of the lever as the tip got damaged.

Also levers look to be interchangable. As in full levers, not the flip up bits.

You could save a bit of money by getting the Accosato with a flip up lever. That would hopefully take the brunt of an off like it did for my friend. Brembo is better known and has rebuild kits.

Choices, choices.

Accosato with short fold up lever, you can see the epoxy stuff around the rubber boot for the cylinder:





Brembo (with Accosato lever pivot fitted, also fitted a stainless bleed nipple, brembo ones are zinc passivated). Only reason I got the Brembo is because I got a good deal on a brand new unit and it had a long lever:




You can't go wrong with either IMO.
