IN NEED OF 83 REAR MASTER CYLINDER GL1100

Postby goldwing 1200 » Thu Aug 20, 2009 6:25 pm



Hi all,
Sorry if posting in wrong board, but I have stripped the brake line connection out of my rear master cylinder. I need a wole new or used mst cyl, not a kit. If anyone can help I would be grateful. This is the bike I found setting for 5 years. I have tried Ebay and all the vendors but no luck. Only 81 and 82 which are different.

Will a later year fil? Like maybe 1200 or 1500?

Thanks,

GUY

I too have a a '83 1100.. i want to be sure and let you know that rear master cylinder's are real hard to get these days. About the best advice i could give you, would be for you to search on E-Bay for one. Or you could try some of the large motorcycle salvage yards. I dont know about fitting one off of a 1200. But i am sure that a cylinder off of a GL-1000 is the same. either way you choose to go you'll find how rare these master cylider's have become. You might try posting your question at "Steve Saunder's Goldwing Page" Just register there and post. It's the most active Goldwing forum that i know of. And has been a great help with my 1100 issues.

The rear master cylinder from a GL1000 is not the same - it, and the non-83 GL1100's, are much smaller. The 83 rear master cylinder, because it operates the rear caliper AND one of the front calipers, is a much larger bore. The smaller cylinders will not have enough capacity to operate the brakes on an 83 properly.

I suppose it's possible that a 1200 cylinder might work, but I can't really say for sure, not having looked at one. As said here, your best bet is really to browse around eBay, the various bike breaker sites online, and any scrapyards you can find.

If the threads are striped out and you still can't find a good replacement I would try some JB weld or come up with an adapter of some sort, maybe you can retread it, I'd try JB weld first, clean it up good and put it on your threads and tighten it until it stops and no more, let it dry for a day and try it out..maybe it will work maybe not, nothing like a new one...Maybe some teflon tape on the threads..

The 83 gl1100 has a single steel brake line going to the right side of the bike. It goes to a PCV (splitter) that feeds front and rear calipers, Also the rear brake actuator is only about 3 inches long.
The 84 will not work because it has to lines exiting the master brake cylinder and the actuator is much longer. The 81 and 82 willnot sub either because they have rear brake only from foot pedal.
Thanks for looking......
