Well, ive rebuilt my master cylinder.
Fixed the snap ring groove.
Bled it 9 ways to Sunday!
And still cant build solid pressure.

Gonna look at the master assembly one more time.

I got the carbs working good finally.

Did the oil change , new filter and added some sea foam to run in it for a bit, and its shifting way better.

It smokes a little on start up bit o think that's cause of the thinned oil with the cleaner .

gonna change the, oil and filter again this weekend. I'm getting closer each time. Just gotta get the rear brakes solid, not sure whats the deal

the brief smoking on startup is normal, as long as it goes away.

I would leave the Seafoam in for at 100 miles before you change out the oil and filter.

While rebuilding the master cylinder did you make sure the return hole was open? It is a microscopic hole you have to remove the rubber grommet where the hose from the reservoir connects and look in the bottom of what looks like a blind hole to see. Best way to be sure it's clear is to look inside the master cylinder while you shine a light into the hole, there should be 2 holes with light coming through, 1 large & 1 small.
