Master cylinder identification

Post by BRAD SASALA » Sun Sep 16, 2018 9:29 am



With all the knowledgeable people out there I hope someone can help me. I am rebuilding a 1981 Honda goldwing interstate. I have rebuilt all the calipers and rear master cylinder.
The front master cylinder had been replaced by a Honda dealer to a newer part. The problem I have is I have no idea what year or model bike this master cylinder came off of. All I know is it is a NISSIN master cylinder and it fits a 7/8 handle bar. I believe it is off a Honda since it was a Honda dealership. I want to order a rebuild kit for it but I need a year and model of the bike. I cannot find any numbers on it. I have attached 3 pictures and was hoping a couple of people out there would see the pictures and say that's the master cylinder on my bike ! It would make my life a lot easier.
A year, model, a picture of your master cylinder, anything would help and be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Brad
Hopefully the attachments come through.
First time doing this. :roll:

Since you know a dealer put it on any chance you could go the dealer and ask?

Looks pretty spiffy, why does it need a rebuild? You may have to go by the bore size which should be cast into the case somewhere.
