Brake master cylinder differences
 
Ive found I need to rebuild my master cylinder. 2001 Honda Rubicon with the super ATV disc brake kit. Would I be better off fixing the one for the original drums or swapping to a disc brake master cylinder?

It's just a pump,it does the same thing for disk or drum brakes. I would just rebuild it if it's in good enough shape.

It was done maybe a year and a half ago, now really doesn't do much, I can get a rebuild kit for $20 or a new Honda 2005+style master for $50. That's why I was wondering if it would be ok/work better.

I'd order a used 500 Foreman master cylinder from powersportsnation.com. About $20 shipped, no labor required on your part other than installing it.

I'm guessing the banjo bolt is the same?

I ordered a new one off ebay for a friend's Quadsport, $20. It's identical to the one on my '87 Foreman, banjo bolt and all.

Yep. I've used the on a 350 Rancher, a 450 Foreman, and even a 300 Fourtrax.

Ordered a used 07-14 rubicon master cylinder. Noticed it has a bigger and longer lever on it, an additional brake switch, but same reservoir size. If I can tonight, I'll get comparison pics for people interested.

Rubicon has a "start in gear" switch on the right hand brake lever.

I'm aware, there are two on the 07+ I'm looking at, if i can retrofit some 3157 bulbs and sockets to the rear tail lights, ill use the brighter filament for brake lights.
