Irrespective of if you want a master cylinder or a lever, we'll need to know if you want a Brembo or Nissin one...

Sadly no. But if you are in a fix then almost any 11, 12 or 13mm (or half-inch) diameter master cylinder/lever will probably make the brake work well enough and certainly make it better than a broken one...

Any 11mm mastercylinder will do the job.

What do you class as a "straight swap"?
