Did you see that on Ebay? I bought something similar online, unit came from China in six days flat, $90 shipped. Its identical to the one on my buddies `07 750 shadow. It did plug`n`play on my `82. Another member had the same experience if i remember correctly.

Thanks for sharing your experience!
I sow it on a e-bay,$43 dolars for a 1100 gl,$37 cb 750, lwould say that is a good deel if it is going to do its job. Name of the company is"US Seller", and appears to be located in a California.
Have you had any problems with the replacement part?

Regards!!!

The bore on the master cylinder has to be the same size as the original one on the bike or it will not work. I bought one your talking about and the bore was to small. I think it was 14mm and the bore has to be 16mm. The seller even told me it would work but it does not. Look at the bottom of master cylinder for a number cast into it. This should tell you the size. I eventually just bought the parts to rebuild the original front master cylinder for about the same price, including new resivuor (the plastic fluid holder and cap). This issue drove me nuts. I thought I wasn't getting the brakes bled good enough because the smaller cyclinder wouldn't build up enough pressure. As soon I rebuilt the old one, pressure built up right away. Buy the one with the same size bore or rebuild.
