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,
