Someone might find this article interesting and maybe even useful some day. Of course, if some internal part need to be replaced, good luck tying to locate the part. Manufacturers seem to prefer selling the entire brake master cylinder assembly instead of the individual parts so that they can be repaired: http://www.motorcycle.com/how-to/mo-wrenching-brake-master-cylinder-rebuild

Here is a brake pad and rotor replacement informational article. This one written by Galfer, so it might be a little slanted, but I assume that they know what they are talking about. However, the last half of the article talks about brake discs, how to clean them and how to break-in new pads, which I found interesting.

Two weeks ago, completed the Tail of Dragon US 129 at Deals Gap and I admit, I was driving very carefully and over abused the rear bake (I know some of you will tell me that it was a very back technique, but since the road was still wet from morning rain, I just did not want to get into the wood, on top of that, my former dirt bike reflexes always kick-in in those situations…), Anyway, got back home, and wanted to check my rear brake pads.
