One point to keep in mind is that you would be changing the bore diameter of 
the m/c by going to the 200 unit. 25mm vs your original 22mm. This may effect 
your pedal effort/feel. Are you running single or dual front piston front 
calipers? Perhaps it's a good time to upgrade to dual piston G60 fronts with 
the m/c upgrade? That would duplicate the OEM setup on the 200 and keep the 
designed-in feel proportionate.

Just a thought,
