Vtr250 Front Brake Master Cylinder

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by chadsposty, Nov 15, 2012.

  1. Gday fellow riders,
    I really need to replace my master cylinder as the base of the mirror stem attaching to it has severely cracked.
    Ive only been riding for 3 months now and have a basic understanding of mechanical stuff but have never tried to bleed brakes as of yet etc. So Im wondering if anyone knows where a good place to buy a preloved master cylinder is and also whether its a hard job or not.
    Got a new one priced today for $250 so am trying to find ways of cutting the damage.

  2. Buy bar end mirror for less than $50, take rest of money to pub.
  3. look harder for a new one cheaper even
    if its ebay.
    then search my brake bleeding thread.

    dont by a second hand , unless you have a second life

  6. HAHA thanks guys...pitty about the blue colour though was hoping for pink! ;)

    I found some side mirror on ebay, a pair for $29 so might order them.....
    Just really unlucky where it cracked coudlve been a bit higher to only have to replace mirros, oh well sh*t happens.
