Using a universal brake master cylinder...

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by mattb, Jul 25, 2006.

  1. Hey. Trying to fix up my friend's Suzuki GN250, need a brake master cylinder, and saw these universal ones on Ebay


    Heck of a lot cheaper than a replacement part. But is there something I've failed to account for, or can one usually just buy a universal master cylinder like this and fit it on, no problems?
  2. As long as the universal master cylinder has the same bore size then you are good to go. Measure your existing one to compare.
    The only other problem that could crop up is some of the aftermarket ones do not have provision for a brake light switch. (haven't looked at your link to see what the go is on those)
