    Brake master cylinder question

    Have standard tandem brake master cylinder and i plan to convert my braking system to non-ABS.
    My question is which port(pipe) provides more volume(pressure) to brake calipers - rear(closest to servo) or front.
    AFAIK ABS use one pipe for FR and RL wheels while other is for RR and FL - but not 100% sure. And that's my concern - if ABS distributes pressure to FR-RL(main pipe) and RR-FL(second pipe) will it make any difference connecting wrongly(one for rear wheels, other for fronts)??

    Unless it's a stepped bore master cylinder, the pressure/volume will be the same from either port.
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."
