It is more cost effective to rebuild the master cylinder then to replace.And it being that your bike is only 6 years old i doubt if it needs repl...

Re: any avid shooters here? (guns)

You have to hear them with proper pipes, the stock exhaust strangles them.
The last trophy I heard sounded like a diesel truck.

IMO half helmets are useless pieces of crap. I wouldn't feed my dog out of one. 3/4 helmets are only slightly better/safer. It will do nothing for your face grinding down the road at highway speeds. But hey, at least you might not be brain dead so you can feel the excruciating pain of your freshly s...
