Hello... Been slaving over this new old bike of mine since Christmas and am now putting it all back together....Been reading the forum nonstop, getting knowledge a lot of good tips! Come to find out, the front master piston is frozen in the bore. Tried high pressure air, Wd40, PB Blaster, even an easy out, and a lot o sweat.. No go, she's shot.. So here it sits with no front brakes.. ARGH ! Does anyone out there know a good source which won't steal ya blind, has good used parts or new after-market master cylinders???? Any assist would be greatly appreciated !! :?

OOPs, sorry... It's an '81 GL110I... Also, been doing some more reading... I went to Bike Bandit and saw that new Honda front MCs are still available for the 96 GL1500I... Will this work on my bike? The pics look very similiar.. Has anyone ever tried this?

This guy sells one on ebay.

HERE

Generic and chromed version. Said it works with dual caliper systems. I asked him since GL1000 and early GL1100 have dual calipers, and models after that had a single caliper. Gotta be a difference in the way it works pressure-wise, but who knows....

Why not buy one on eBay? A used one should be okay sincevery few are in such poor condition as the one on your bike and many much older ones are still working well.

Actually, the '82 was the first year of the dual piston caliper. All earlier models had single pistons in each caliper...

I'm re-doing my 81, upgrading to 82 rims and brakes. on average, a MC of that vitage is about $65-85, and who knows if it'll need a kit...
