Default master cylinder replacement lense?

a while back I thought I remember reading where some of you . Had info on a replacement lense for the brake and clutch masters. Please let me know where it is. I have never had any luck searching this sight for info. I have no idea why but I do. I will continue to search until I hear back

Thanks again Gannon

I did this in the past..the watch crystal does work. I also put a properly sized O ring in the bore to also hold the glass along with silicone. I also found you can press out the original site glass if you use a small enough C clamp. So if you want to chrome press it out first.

Thanks for the tips I will pass that on to my friend. I am using Nissen masters.

I got mine from this guy. He was very good to deal with and I'm happy to recommend him. He should have the measurements you need for the Vmax M/C's since he just got them to me.

Also, for searching this site, I always put a search item into Google, and then add "site:vmaxforum.net". So, try typing in "sight glass site:vmaxforum.net"

Good luck!

Ive got the same ones, like'm. I suggest using the same size for both, the stock windows on the max are two different sizes from the brake to the clutch, I poked out both windows and noticed a ring inside the hole on one(can't remember which) and it needs the smaller window but if you remove the ring (pop it out) they will both be the same size. I think its 14mm but don't hold me to that. Make sure to request that when you order. I also used a couple "O" rings to take up the depth of the hole so the window was flush with the outer edge of the master.

They are RTV'd in. Use clear or black with a tooth pick, no pressure on the glass so it doesn't take much.

Well that's just what I did, Once you pull out the old lens you'll notice its deep and both have a metal piece that keeps the fluid from sloshing. I kept those in but for some reason the factory put a small ring in one making the window smaller. The "O" rings (I found at a parts store) just fit inside the hole and take up some slack so the glass isn't sunk back too far. I think it looks better when they're flush with the outer surface.
