There is more to it than the master cylinder. If everything is working right you will have decent brakes but the older bikes didn't have enough friction area to have the braking power of the newer ones. You could make improvements with new brake lines and a different master cyl. but it actually would have to be a smaller piston or different fulcrum point for the lever to apply more pressure to the calipers. Calipers with larger pistons and/or larger pads and larger rotors would be great if you could find something that would work.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

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