I was running without a front brake on a springer chopper that I built. Partly because I wanted the clean look, but also because the stock MC from Harley was too big and bulky for the Z Bars I was using (Zombie Performance). After a few close calls in traffic, I started hunting for a front master cylinder that was compact but also sleek looking. I finally decided on this one and purchased the matching clutch housing as well. I was not disappointed. The build quality is fantastic. It's just a tad smaller than the stock (length wise from banjo to lever end) but it is way sleeker and looks great on my bars. It bled effortlessly and the action on it is super smooth... all within a sub $200 package.
