    Correct. Simply swap the master cylinders over, bleed the brakes and your done.

    Brembo RCS 19 master cylinder

    Hot tip when doing the lever before changing remove the wheel and push the pads out slightly with the lever (not too much). Change the lever with cloths around the lines, then push the pads into the caliper which should in effect reverse bleed any air that got in when changing. Full bleed through with any ABS system is a ball ache

    One last question. Do I need to order a new banjo bolt or will the one from the Nissin master cylinder for the Brembo master cylinder?

    You can reuse the OEM banjo bolt.

    Worth ordering new copper crush washers for the banjo bolt. I doubt the new MC will come with any and I wouldn't recommend using the existing washers.

    Fine to reuse old unless they are visually damaged.

    Plus RCS always comes with extra washers.

    Let us know how much if any tax you pay. You can buy rcs from number of UK shops, but no idea about pricing these days.

    Well the master cylinder came through and worked out cheaper than buying from the UK even after import taxes were paid. Just managed to purchase a set of Brembo GP4RX calipers so now have to bleed the front end all over again.
