How does one replace sightglass in GL1500 master cylinder, w/obeing forced to replace entire unit? Apologies if this has been often discussed here before but could not locate anything on it.
And, how close to shattering is a sightglass in this condition? New hampshire secondary roads are atrocuious for potholes, bumps, sothis isn't helping.
Wife/yours truly do occasional long trips, when our health allows. Don't wish to lose front brake if this were to happen miles from home[not to mention paint damage fromDOT 4fluid!]. Any advice: Am all ears, LOL!

Hey Tom
There was a thread on it in the past year, might have been on a 1200. I'm doing this on my phone in NH so I can't search and paste a link from this phone.
I would find a used master. I could call my friend in CA to see if he has one.

HI STU: MANY THANKS for the kind offer! At this point, will first try to find info on replacing sight glass and if that fails, will check w/several local m/c recyclers for good used unit. TTFN. .....papasmurf
