Do you have the split braking system, or separate front & back brakes?

Dave0430 said, And if yours is still working it is rebuildable.

Yes, this is true. Without a doubt!!


But Dave, I really cant believe that you would say that there is only one size master cylinder for all! You of all people? Don't for gods sake for the first time in your life lead a poor questioning Mofo' astray, there's the 12mm for the split brake and the 14mm for the seperate brake system and no-one quite knows when in '83 they decided to change it.

I know for sure that I have true and real testimony to that, it took a long time and real $$$$ to figure it out.

My whole deal in this thread is, that I probably have an '83 split brake front master cylinder to offer this guy, 'cause I bought enough of them from people on there (ebay) and due their spiel, I bought $#!T I just can't use. But I finally got it right and realized that they really will lie to you!! Or just, over simplify things because they don't know either.

Can't help you with an '80-'82 separate master cylinder system, because i've got the best stuff available on that ol' bike to the left, and I ain't parting with any of it!


Hey just putting this out there too. while I'm at it, are you sure it's a master cylinder your'e after, and not just, "within specs" rotors, now I really can, help you out with those!!

My break system is the linked, the Front MC goes to one front rotor only and the break peddle operates the rear break and other front rotor.
Exactly my point. If Dave is correct, and he always is, you have a maximum 25% chance of this MC working for you.

That's why me & ebay have such a love/hate relationship.

I'm gonna look around and see what I've got, I'll get back if I've got something that'll work for you.

Well I looked and it ain't good news, I found 2 or 3 of 'em but what I've got is is most likely in worse shape than yours is but if you want to try and make a good one out of it, you can have it all for the cost of shipping.
You never did say what was wrong with yours, if it's not leaking and your problem is the lever coming too far back towards the bar then you may be looking at the wrong end of the brake, thin rotors do that, like I said before, that, I can help you out with, put a caliper on it, less than 9.00mm on a vented rotor is the limit and the nearer you are to 10.00mm the better off you are.
If it's just the look of the thing that's bothering you then I found these today on fleabay.

I bought one of those universal sets and if you notice it's not angled so as to be level when on the bars of a wing, if I remember rightly I couldn't actualy fill it all the way due to that. And it too was not designed for a double disc so I never used it, and then when I went to grab it the other day while looking for MC's for you, my finger touched the sight glass and crushed it completely in, just saying!
