SECONDARY MASTER CYLINDER

Post by FlyBoy2121 »



I Guys

Yesterday I changed my front brake GoldWing 2003.

I do not understand the idea of ​​a Torx bolt, which take the secondary master on the front caliper.

What is the joke that Honda made​​, put a Torx bolt.

I have not seen yet another Torx bolt on my bike.

I have also wondered why it is not an allen head like the rest of the bolts.

It was probably an afterthought by some engineer, originally, because it is what he had at hand. Then, in future versions, the other folks thought there was a purpose for it, and so it stayed.
