I'm told you will have less "feel" because a larger piston makes less pressure for a given amount of travel than a smaller one. It definitely will "work".
This article might help. It discusses radial masters, but the principle is the same.

Do i have any worry running superbike goldlines with a single brake set up on an older 98 m750? i am currently running these with a dual front rotor set up.
Just curious, why are you switching from dual rotors back to a single?

Pretty sure a 98 M750 came with a single disc.

The 98 M750 did have 1 disc. Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but didn't he say, " i am currently running these(goldlines) with a dual front rotor set up. " - and now he wants to use this master on a single disc.

Different bike maybe? Anyway....I quit. [laugh]

good questions indeed... i have dual right now but i've thought of going back to a single iron disk with better pads to lighten the front end up. looks cooler too, and i miss the steering response of the lighter weight single front disk. just thought i'd ask around first, i'm a ways off from that project though.

I had a single disc on my 99 M750, and IMHO it really sucked. The bike never felt "balanced" when I got on the binders. Now, I have dual discs and all is well! I couldn't/wouldn't switch back for anything. Give it some thought. [thumbsup]

My buddy Doug raced with a 750 and single disc. I've ridden his 748 engined bike with a single disc. It works great. It does have a single disc master and an iron rotor.

I can't complain about my single disc too, although I did upgrade the pads and put a nice new braketech rotor on it ;D plus, visually, it's kind of nice to only have one rotor on one side so you can actually see the spokes on the wheel (makes cleaning a lot easier too)

I also like the look of the single disc, and have run both. My single front is way more than needs to stop my little monster, even with a fatty like me on it. I'm curious as to what the goldline caliper would do to feel though. I'd like a firmer brake handle with less lever travel.

You can get that by adjusting the bleed properly. If you're not familiar with it have a tech do it.
