Aftermarket Master Cylinders in Superstock?

Hi everyone,

First year racing, I'm trying to make sure all my ducks are in a row for Round 1.
2008 R6 with an aftermarket master cylinder, I can't figure out if I'm Superstock 600/750 legal from the wording in the rulebook.

9.1.6(a) states hand and foot controls can be replaced (are master cylinders considered hand/foot controls??).
9.1.6(b) then immediately states that brake reservoirs must remain stock, but doesn't mention master cyls. Is that rule supposed to cover the master as well?
The only specific mention of "master cylinder" is in 9.1.6(r)(vi) which only applies to 9.1.6(r) (pertaining to using aftermarket rotors).

So, from how I'm reading the rulebook it seems like I can use an aftermarket master as long as I have a stock reservoir and stock rotors. Am I interpreting the rules wrong? I don't want to drop $100 on a stock M/C if I don't have to, but then I don't want to be ineligible for 2 of my races if I'm wrong.

I emailed Paul but I'm sure he's busy and I'm running low on time to get ready.

Thanks in advance!
