    It’s back off to Rick @ Smedspeed tomorrow so let’s hope third time really is the charm.

    Domed contour on the visible side is an excellent addition :thumbsup:

    Would be good to verify size of master cylinder needed so I can begin the hunt. Was going to match my brake master cyl with a Brembo so need to be sure I get it right the first time. Lol.

    I’m using the clutch perch from a YZF-750 that has a 14mm piston.

    That was always there ever since we first made it, it’s actually the same profile as the original press in tin cap. I thought that would be a nice touch.

    Thx. I’ll have to see if the Brembo master cylinder is available in that size. Feels like you’re getting close to the finish line on this project!

    Edit: Brembo’s smallest radial master cylinder seems to be a 14mm so that should be easy to obtain.

    I think 14mm is a fairly common size, I’d be interested to hear how deviations in master cylinder piston size effect clutch pull feel.

    I really bloody hope so mate, I’ve enjoyed this project immensely but I’m at the point now where I want to be able to call it a success and move onto the next thing!

    4BFBA40D-91D3-40B5-90A6-6F0679CCA460.png This is what I am planning to use. Quite expensive but I told myself this would be the last mod I did on the bike. Lol.

    hahaha, that's more expensive than my entire bike so far!
