Hole in rear master cylinder cap?

Post by Happytrails » Sat Sep 28, 2013 4:46 pm

I've been going thru a 1991 Goldwing that I recently purchased just doing general maintenance and checking everything. I noticed that my rear master cylinder cap had black electric tape on top of it. The tape was falling off and I noticed someone had drilled a 1/4" hole thru the cap. Why would someone do this?

Totally stupid thing to do.

I suspect someone had difficulty bleeding brakes and the Einstein read something on the net as an aid.

Replace the cap.

That is what we call hack work.
This is what I do
