    Hey guys,
    so I've been wanting to slim down all the stuff on my bars, and I'm looking to find a smaller front master cylinder. any that I have found have been waaaay over priced. I've thought even tearing one off of a dirtbike, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a place where I could get a simple SMALL master cylinder for a good price?

    It's not that simple. I don't know all of the tech. stuff involved, but it has to do with master cyl. piston size, line size, disc diameter, caliper pistons etc. If you were to use a dirt bike m.c., you might have to have a gorilla to squeeze the lever. I could be wrong.:34:

    Breeze is correct. Unless you do the math, you could be headed down the road of big problems and trouble. On the surface it looks like a simple thing to do but it is not.
