Well, as anticipated, the brakes have turned into a complete headache. I pulled off the master cylinder and it was full of shit... just gritty nasty black stuff. So I went ahead and dismantled it. Anytime the word "mallet" is used as a recommended way to disassemble something i get a bit concerned. I did, however, get the cylinder out to inspect it, I cleaned it with brake cleaner and steel wool (avoiding the rubber and scarring it) and then once complete I went for the reinstall.
I'm not sure what "special tool" 9 is, but I didn't have it. So while pushing it in i completely mangled the stop washer which I have highlighted in the picture below
So with that now broken I went ahead and ordered a complete rebuild kit for the front and rear brakes and stainless steel brake lines. I also threw in a windshield on the order... I mean honestly who is going to be pulled over by a police bike with no windshield! My master plan is still coming together!
Parts arrive tomorrow and should everything check out will be road worthy over the weekend!
