ANOTHER master cylinder question

Postby ankgrays » Mon Jul 06, 2015 8:51 pm



In today's CONTINUING saga...

I got the rear master cylinder rebuild parts kit from the local shop. A K&L brand. It has everything I need, EXCEPT

the push rod with the washer on it. I had to destroy mine to get the guts out of the MC.

I can't seem to find another one, new or used, except in a complete rear assembly on fleabay.

The rods from a gl 1000 look similar. Does anyone know if they are interchangeable, or if one from another model would work?

Maybe even another brand of bike? Or does anyone know of a source, new or used (preferably in good shape), that I could

beg, borrow, or steal? Maybe even purchase it?

here is your part number 43530-mb9-781. CMS has them in stock. I didn't check any other places. Nice to see it is still available. check this number and be sure it is what you want.

I think I have one you can have if you still need. I can check in the morning if you are interested. I will send it tomorrow-let me know. (no charge)

Well, I checked further into CMS and that listed part was for an '83 GL1100i...I have an '81.

Local Honda shop says that they are 2 different master cylinders and won't work. (Look the same to me)

Sooo...back to the search.

I didn't mean to give you the wrong part number, I just go to the 83 out of habit. More knowledge on the differences on the 1100s. I will start over...
80 thru 82 43530-463-006 or 43530-mb9-006 They show on the parts list two rods, ?? one has a nut one doesn't I don't know. has to be one somewhere.
