Hand brake fluid level window 1986 Aspencade

Post by BroChester »

Fluid level window has become cracked and fluid leaks out. Anyone has a repair hack short of replacing entire brake assembly?

You can use a piece of Lexan to replace the sight glass or you can buy a replacement from Ebay. Your sight glass is most likely 18 mm in diameter.

Enter this in the Ebay search window: MOTORCYCLE Clutch Brake MASTER CYLINDER Sight Glass
Looks like most are from china. But, this one is from a USA Shipper. Ebay Item Number 182117516218

Here is an old post on the sight glass replacement here on GoldWingDocs.
