...its exactly the same as my old R6 2001-2...

isnt it in fact the same engine or am i wrong?

I thought the "old" and last r6 engine with carburettor was reused as engine in the fz6's with a fuel injectors update and others cams?!

Not a lot of shaft thread engaged in the nut, almost like the sprocket boss is too thick. Agree with Bob, never re-use tabbed lock washers or split pins.

Yes sorry, like you say. Pulling on the lever would increase the pressure because there is a resistive load.

I should have put it differently. You could use a static load (contstant presure, say to a piston) but theis would then require another mesuring device and would actually be useless in this situation because it wouldn't give the feel of a motorcycle break

Rambeling again, I'll be quite now :P

Ideally you need a load to resist against, no just a resiviour (like this is)

By presure is a constant, I assume you mean under load. EG say it is the system is at 100 PSI then you pulling on the lever should not increase the presure, it should apply a movment load until there is no more give. Unfortunetly in this siuation that wouldn't be a practical solutuion as it would require a lot of space.

We use the same pricipal in Lifts, systems sit at say 10 bar and starting the pump doesnt actually put any more pressue on the cylinder it just moves oil into the cylinder and such moves the lift car on the rod.
That's not how brake works (can't say for lifts but I trust you).

Lever not pulled, pressure in the main part of the circuit is small (in the reservoir it's just the atm pressure).
Only when you pull it the pressure builds up. The initial part where you actually displace the piston/pad is not very interesting (but you ned some extra pressure for this too, to overcome friction). Once the pad touches the disc, this is where you build up pressure.

Thank you Peter, for everything.  Totally understandable.

Sincerely all the best m8.

Fortunately, I still get to whip yer ass on other sims CAWS supports! ;)

When we brake on a motorcycle, actually every wehicule with liquid brake on disc, we first push the fluid with the lever to move the "fork cylinder" (sorry, i don't have the exact technic word) so it press the pad to the disc. But the disc constantly turn (till you stop  ;D) and by his movement keeps pushing the pad back so you maintain that force through the pressure you have on the lever. On this system, the pressure is made, the little tiny circuit is filled up, you test with the lever, you have pressure. But if during a lap, you keep pressing, pressing, nothing move, the pressure keeps being directly applied only to the round metallic cap that press on the silicium plate (that catch the pressure by deformation if i understood what i have been reading about it).
So in the Allan system, i think but i might be totally wrong - i just give an idea that i have in my mind - that the pressure will keep going up to a certain level and something is going to leak or break after a lot or maybe not a lot of actionning. As far as i know water is not compressible, what about this DOT fluid ?

Replace the locking washer.. its exactly the same as my old R6 2001-2.. my washer was rusty, broke off and the nut worked its way loose, flicked up and smashed my crankcase... oil everywhere as i was going around a roundabout. game over.  :'(
ill do so tomorrow. thanks for the tip mate.

as soon as the new part arives, the drive sprocket is under inverstigation... ;)
but i think it will now be secure for now, at least for the winterdays.

Pressure is always constant, issue is not having a slave so you hydraulic 'gain' is massive. Ideally you need the smallest diameter master or ideally a dummy slave cylinder.
Uh ?
