Mastiff Posted June 15, 2011 Share Posted June 15, 2011 I spoke to Yamaha Scandinavia in my desperation to fix the front brake of my son's DX, and it turns out that the lid/cap of the master cylinder and the master cylinder assembly is not available any more from Yamaha. But the guy at the main parts department (which is in Sweden for Norway and Sweden) said that I could use the RD 125 LC master cylinder on the bike if I could get it to fit with brake line and stuff. The difference in brake fluid pressure was not enough to create any problems. And there are tons of LC master cylinders on eBay, so that I can get any time. But has anybody ever done that switch, or does anybody have both bikes so they can tell me if the banjo bolt, brake line and other stuff would fit? And is it possible to have a custom brake line made anywhere, if that turns out to be the problem? Oh, and he also said that the price of the LC assembly directly from Yamaha would be around £300 if I wanted that! So that wouldn't be happening any time soon... Especially with all the NOS parts on eBay. Edit: This seems to be of academic interest now, I have heard back from a fellow forum member who has a cylinder that I can use. But still it would be interesting to know if this is possible, since a later wipeout could damage the cylinder again! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
