I use an earlier version of that m/c on my supercharged Bird works well with the very heavy clutch springs I have fitted.

This baffles me slightly
Hoping it would bring the friction zone closer to the bar since it's adjustable.
so is the OE Bird lever so I'm not sure you are going to gain anything by changing the m/c.
Don't forget that Brembo use a different thread pitch to Honda on the banjo bolts so if you don't have one you will need one.

I have a ligament in my hand that hurts pretty bad when I'm doing a lot of shifting. If the Brembo would pull easier or bring the friction zone just a little closer to the bar it would be worth mounting to me. Does it not have a wider range of adjustment than the stock one?

Ah that is a different matter then.
Can't say about the range of adjustment on yours since my model is slightly different (but the range is probably larger than OE on mine)

I also have a 'problem' with my left hand (thumb didn't work for 18 months following accident) I tend to do clutchless upshifts from 2nd upwards, saves too many hand issues.

Silverbird, i use a Brembo RSC 16 clutch master on mine along with an Oberon slave cylinder. This does make the clutch a lot lighter. Also plenty of adjustment on the Brembo. Only downside of them is the cost 290GBP!

What about the two wires that go to the stock master? That's so you can't start it in gear correct?

Got it mounted HEL makes a great fitting line. Feels about 15% lighter but moved the friction point seems like an 1/2" closer so I'm happy. I have the option to run 18 or 20 whatever that means, Do your have that adjustment?

Also, do I need to put a wire to jump those two wires or can I leave it?

Yes you'll need to or the starting circuit won't be complete and the bike won't turn over.
Just remember my previous comment:)
