    magura master cylinder thingy

    Post by crm250dude on Wed Apr 29, 2015 7:35 pm

    went out on my own again this afternoon in my back yard and stacked it - thats 2 out of 2 now Suspect

    this time i broke the back brake lever on my handlebars (rekluse clutch thingy)

    its a magura lever and its the master cylinder bracket bit thats broke

    can i use any generic master cylinder lever set up - any suggestions of a cheap one ?

    all i can find on ebay are around £100 and from USA + £30 post

    Dude - I have the LHBB system on mine but not the over ride clutch lever.  I use an AJP clutch lever with master cylinder on it s the rear brake set up

    i think this might be it - but i cant see the underside - its not the lever that broke - its the bit the lever mounts too

    Would a mountain bike lever and master cylinder push enough volume of fluid to move the brake cylinder/s far enough?, wouldnt think so.
