'80 GL 1100 Standard Rear Master Cylinder Needed

Hello,

I went to rebuild my rear master cylinder, which sprang a leak and when I unbolted it, the c-ring popped out - along wth the guts. It appears the lip that holds the c-ring in had broken about half the way around. I need a new rear master cylinder to replce this one. The OEM part # is: 43500-463-671, of course no longer available from Honda... Does any one have one, or know where I can get a new one, or at least one that is in good condition. I have the rebuild kit, just need a good home for it.

Thanks!

You will not find a new one. No such thing. And IF you find a good used one you will pay dearly for it.

I may have good one laying around. I try to keep a couple or three on hand. I've gone through five of them. So I'm leery of letting go of a good one. However, having gone through so many I fully understand how hard they are to come by and how frustrating it is to need one and not be able to get one.

Give me the rest of the day to go through my junk and see if I can come up with one for you. I'll post back here this evening to let you know.

It didn't take me as long as I thought it would to go through everything. I have one complete master cylinder that I will not part with. I thought I had two but only the one.

I also have one master cylinder body, no guts, nothing. Just the aluminum body.

And I have the one that is currently installed on my Wing.

Since you have a rebuild kit already, and one to pull the rest of the parts you need from, I think all you really need is the body.

The one I have is in serviceable condition. please understand that it is not perfect, but it WILL work if cleaned and rebuilt. There is a small area of the neck where the circlip goes that is eaten away by corrosion. But there is plenty there to keep a ciclip in place. In fact I used this master cylinder for two years the way it is. I replaced it simply because I came across a better one (which is one my Wing now) not because it failed.

I've seen rebuildable MC's go for $75 - $125 on eBay, and working ones go for $150 -$200.

Obviously just the body isn't worth all that so...how about $50 + shipping?

I almost wonder if you could make up something different maybe with a car master , I looked for two months to find one for my 80

There are alternatives...there are a lot of motorcycle master cylinders that will work, but I don't have a clue how to cross reference it.

I know I can upgrade to a newer version, redrill holes, etc. The trick is to get the alignment right so it will actuate properly. Mount it wrong and it will not work, but can definitely do as a last resort! Thanks.

Brokewinger really took care of me. The part I recieved was cleaned and in very good shape overall. Great guy to deal with. Thanks, Borke!
