    Rear Brake Master Cylinder

    Can anyone help??
    I have just put my 2002 RSV-R into the local garage for a service and to check the rear brake, apparently the seals have gone in my master cylinder but the seals aren't available seperately which means a new master cylinder. This doesn't sound right to me, can anyone give me any more info??
    And is there a mod availble to move the cylinder from the ridiculous location??
    Cheers,
    Billy

    Only to fit it to a set of gilles rear sets. Which cost the price of a small Scottish Island.

    I'm having the same problem as you. Just purchased a new M/C and I will put heat wrap both exhaust sections and will keep you posted as well.

    Griffs rearsets relocate the master cylinder, PM him for a set. The standard master cylinders are usually pretty good and yes the garage is telling you the correct information, no seals I'm afraid.

    You can pick them up on Ebay for around 30, pretty much all Italian bikes use this master cylinder.
