Anyone replaced the ugly Coffin reserviors to the pretty cylindrical ones found on the S2R1000?
I searched this topic 4 or 5 different ways, and came up with nothing.

Help for a brother??? ;D

There are 'goldline' masters avail from many of the sponsors (link on left)
$130ish per if memory serves.
or you can get the extra-swanky radial masters for about double that.

or keep an eye out for used ones crashers or upgraders

Thanks for all of your help!

How difficult is the actual process? I'm pretty mechanically inclined, but I'm new to motorcycle modification side of things.

Yep, to do the work you'll need a few small parts (brass washers) for the banjo fittings. Some brake fluid, bleed kit, and hand tools.

You might need to find a proper brake light switch. Yo ucould also find the clutch side - or just bypass the interlock on that side.

Disconnect the coffins
Remove the coffins
On the with the goldlines
Replace all the brass washers and reconnect the lines
Bleed the lines - if you can set up to do a 'reverse bleed' it'll be a faster job and you'll need less brake fluid since you won't have to pull fresh fluid all the way though the lines.

There's always some on ebay. They can be picked up new from just about any shop as well.

I actually sold my billet Brembo radials and left my coffins, I think they are cleaner looking than having ugly plastic remote reservoirs, even if you get rizomas, I still think the coffins are a cleaner, tidier look. There were fitment issues with the radials (would need custom lines, and would need to custom fabricate mount spacers for my cycle cat bars, instead I sold them and bought my garmin gps ;D)

I don't see any performance advantage of the goldlines over the coffins anyway. It's purely aesthetic, unless you're changing the piston sizes.

I feel the same way.....I think they look much cleaner.
