I suspect you are right. I have used aftermarket kits and remember having to use the OE snap ring for that reason. The chinese don't make good spring steel apparently.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Yes. The snap ring I used during the rebuild was brand new from the rebuild kit. And I'm sure the kit was aftermarket.

If you still need another master message me. I have two GL1100s that are just parts. One is an 81 the other 82. Masters for both are the same.

I know it was a aftermarket kit. The 80-81 GL1100 master cylinders are unique to these bikes. The '82 might be included but I don't know. The '83 had the linked brakes and i would guess it is different. Back to the rebuild kit. The Honda rebuild kits have been n/a from Auntie Honda fr at least 10 years, not to say there might be a few OEMs around, but they are scarce.
