Hello all, first post, but a lurker no more. Working on a pair of 83's and have parted out over the years a couple more and so have some parts. For those who know, I have two different front master cylinders and they are marked 5/8 and 14 on the bottom Both use the plastic resovor w/two screws. If I remember right one is 83, and the other is Late 82, but not sure which one is which. Any help is welcome and what rebuild parts have you had good luck with. Jerry

well 83 had linked brakes.. as the 82 still had single brake lines for front and back. I would guess the 1/4 is for 82. I have 82 but I have fitted my bike with a gl1200 master cylinder and it has 1/2 stamped on it.

Not really different but you can be little easier on the brakes as it was design to control both front and back. But truth be told, I didnt notice much difference. I got 1200 mc because I got sick of the fluid holder leaking on my paint. With 1200 no plastic, all on piece besides the lid. Works great. All metal!

The smaller of the 2 (14mm) is for the 83 since it only works 1 caliper, the 82 works both front calipers so it needs to be a bit larger (5/8" - 16mm).
