Some people just go to one rotor without changing anything, but it is my understanding that you should also switch to the F650GS master cylinder, which is designed for a single rotor. Something to do with the hydraulics and pressure applied to have the brakes function and respond properly.

The stock MC will still work, it will just displace too much fluid for a single caliper. Practically you are getting shorter lever travel at the expense of more pressure required, giving a more wooden feel.

I would run 2 lines from a junction to get rid of that weird set-up that BMW thought up. In fact, I think I will do that in the near future. Now proceed with your conversion
