    Depends on the price, they aren't known to be very inexpensive for most items

    1. Replacing the OEM brake cylinder would be cheaper and easier. The newer units will work better as well. So unless you are really set on keeping the bike all OEM original, I would opt for replacing instead of rebuilding.

    3. Regarding re-jetting and running with pods. You might not even need to re-jet at all. Have a look at these

    76twin- have you heard of any aftermarket master cylinders in particular? The one posted above doesn’t have any reviews. Not sure if maybe people are using one from 4into1 they love, for example.

    Thanks everyone!

    I have one that is very similar as the one I posted and it works great.

    But if you want reviews...

    Although this one above appears to be made for 1" bar.

    I have the original flat rate Honda manual but sadly I won’t be back home this week to reference it. I’ll try and remember to post when I’m back there for anyone that is truly interested.
