Ok, I've read some about the front brakes on the 1100 not being the best in the world. I'm guessing that the weak link would be the master cylinder. What I'm thinking about doing is going with a more up to date master cylinder on the bike. I would like to try and use the master cylinder from an ST1300 or the GL1800. Is this possible? I know the newer bikes have linked systems but I was thinking I could still go direct to the front caliper on the 1100 because it is just a hydraulic system that applies fluid pressure wherever the lines are routed correct? I'm ready for any flaming I may get but I dig old school stuff with new school safety.
