The front brake master cylinder on my 1979 honda gl1000 is mushy and needs replaced. I have bought a new product for this model vs rebuilding. What is the easiest way to switch and if bleeding is necessary is a step by step process for novices?

i replaced mine on my 87 and just bled everything. I believe when you remove the banjo, air will enter, might be wrong, but i went ahead and just bled to remove air. im not an expert but i'm sure a pro on this topic will help.

Any time you open the brake system, it needs to be bled afterward. You could probably save some money just rebuilding what you already have, versus purchasing a replacement.
