Front master cylinder needed

Post by Mad_Taffy_500 on Wed 14 Feb 2018, 7:13 pm

Hey guys 

I need help I'm looking for a brembo front master cylinder
As a screw snap flush on mine when I went to remove the cap to change my fluid 

So does anyone have one for sale or know if there is another bike that fits as there's not much on eBay 

Thanks

Have you tried drilling the old screw out,would not matter if you had to use a bigger diameter screw.Might be worth a try.

A Nissin cylinder would do just as well, and are much more common. Up to 1/2" bore is OK.

Brembo is a weird one as they use a 13mm bore if I remember correctly as the nissin ones use 1/2" (12mm). If you're really stuck then get one with a 1/2" bore and sell it on.

Sorry to drag up this thread 

But I still need to sort this as it appears that even though I drilled and tapped the hole it seems to have failed and fluid has been leaking when out when I've had the steering lock on

Check the level of the fluid, but also check the diaphragm against the plastic retainer. Mine didn't seat correctly and it also leaked when the steering lock was on.
