    Default Master Cylinder options (Panhead)

    Looking for suggestions please...
    Iím converting my Panhead from rear drum mechanical brake to a disc PM brake.

    I donít like the look of the master cylinder up at my foot control. Any ideas of how to hide a small one somewhere else on the frame?

    Iíll attach a pic of my bike so you can see where my pipes are.

    Use the stock mechanical front linkage and crossover.
    Mount a master cylinder on the left side.
    Inside the primary maybe?
    Use the stock tool box mounts?
    Hide it inside a tool box ?

    use one with a remote reservoir, easy to hide... a universal one or like this one that fits a zx6:

    this one has a rocker actuation...could get creative with that one:

    That sounds interesting! Have you ever seen anything like that? I scoured the Internet for images and ideas and haven’t come up with much

    It's kinda hard to see but here is one like the top one mounted inside the frame rail with the reservoir bolted to the back of the primary on my 50 Scout. It is operated by a cross shaft.


    It hides pretty gooder.

    Very cool, thanks. It’s a little hard to see how the linkage works though. I guess that’s where I’m stuck

    You could mount it to the tranny using a plate off the kicker cover or a plate to the frame.I found some pics online from this thread on JJ

    Iím definitely going with your suggestion. My friend has a Jesse James build that used it up at the foot controls and I want to copy it. (I attached a pic) Any idea what brand Cylinder is the best quality? Thanks again!

    As good as I could get without putting it up on the lift. Had a honda master on it for a few years when it went bad I picked this Chinesey copy off Fleabay and it seems fine.

    The linkage went through 3 or revisions because I was over thinking it.
    Measuring the full travel of the master cylinder and the brake lever, I found them to be pretty much the same so I wound up just using 1 to 1 ratio. I made a T piece and the brake cable and master attach to the ends of the top and the bottom of the T is the pivot.

    I wanted clean bars so I chose this lever setup...

    I'm in Central FL. I got a used crotch rocket master cylinder w/reservoir from http://www.fallencycles.com for about $15 and then a rebuild kit (just to be safe)... way cheaper than new. Works great for my application.

    I think the idea of using a mc with remote reservoir is to hide it...I think you can make yours better than that 'JJ' version...you already have a rod that attaches to the brake pedal...add a mc like this at the other end of your brake rod, tuck away the remote reservoir, done...better than that bought 'JJ'.
