929 front brake master cylinder, 954 same???

The 929 and 954 have different part numbers and i was wondering if anybody has put the front brake master from a 954 on a 929. I have a guy saying they work but the different part numbers have me to belive differently...but i know part numbers sometimes don't jive also...any ideas??????? Thanks

Re: 929 front brake master cylinder, 954 same???

They are definitely different. The 954 has a bigger piston. You can put a 954 master cylinder on a 929, but I forget if it is an easy swap, or if you need to do other things to it to get it to fit. I was thinking about doing it, since the 954's brakes are noticably better than the 929's, but for me, the improvement, while noticable, isn't huge so I couldn't justify the cost.

Re: 929 front brake master cylinder, 954 same???

I have a 954 front master cylinder on my 929 and it bolts right up. I didn't look at them real close, but they look the same on the outside.

I haven't noticed a big difference in braking yet. I may need to bleed the brakes a little more though.

the 954 does appear to have a different brake lever though, so you will need the master and lever.

Yeah you should be fine with all that, but all of it is not necessary. All you should need is the master cylinder and maybe a 954 brake lever.

Re: 929 front brake master cylinder, 954 same???

The 954 has a "smaller bore". 954=17.5mm ID/929=19.1 ID. The 954 MC will bolt up no problem. The deal is that you end up buying the whole assembly (res/mc/brake switch assembly). Lever is the same between 29/54. Pads are also different for the 954 and they do make a difference. Depending on miles, consider cleaning rotor with a "rotor hone"; Ferodo sells one for $40.

Re: 929 front brake master cylinder, 954 same???

sorry: Brake levers are different between 54/29. The offset is about 1.3mm different. 929 lever will fit. But if you want the exact fit, the 954 lever is not part of the MC assembly.
