1100 front master cylinders

Postby goldminerusa » Fri Jul 20, 2012 8:21 pm



Does anybody know where i can buy a new NOS or OEM front master cylinder for an `82 1100 ? I`m tired of rebuilding 30 yr. old junk. Nothing on Ebay.

saw an aftermarket on ebay, whole unit with handle/lever and metal reservoir ready to bolt on

just read recently that it has superior action to the original

pretty sure there is also another new M/C option, read about it all on the naked site

I purchased one of those master cylinders. It fit perfect and works like a charm

I hope not, but you might find that the lever action is too soft , with you having the double piston calipers.

'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!

bummer, just came to my attention that the above item comes from china,

this one comes from the states but dunno where made

apologies to the OP, i will have to find the positive remarks i had just read about at the naked site, as to which one was in discussion,

the comments i remember were that ~ less effort on the lever resulted in more force on the calipers, that the OEM setup
