Thanks for all the replies.

Ordered a radial MC from AliExpress for not much. It's a 17mm one.

I'll see what it feels like and if it make a difference, I'll invest in something better quality.

Will do. Picked one that other users this side of the world had used and said was acceptable.

Sceptical myself, but as I said, it is more proof of concept than anything else.
There's lots of second hand options out there from Triumph and Ducati once I've got the spec right.

Same as this... I buy a lot of stuff from China, and I have Chinese shorties on all of my bikes, but like fuck would I trust my life to a brake master cylinder assembled by a 6 year old child.
