yeah lets pin it!....just found that the plastic elbow that comes out of my rear brake master cylinder (held in by a circlip of course) and connects to rubber hose from reservoir is not a seperate part !!!
VICTORY PARTS!!!! gotta buy a whole *%#$$$ing master cylinder!
gonna try Aralditing mine after a stick flung up by the front wheel snapped mine (not that I had any rear brakes anyway cos I cant buy a rear caliper seal kit!!!!)
Great bikes but they screw you anally on fkn parts!!! if ya can get em!
Sort of a help anyway!
Told me I had to repair the broken part or fork out Aussie $$$$ for a complete master cylinder!
Yeah VJ. In all fairness it was helpful.
I mixed up araldite and glued the plastic elbow then when it set I got some epoxy radiator and fuel tank repair putty and went over my repair. WAY TOO MUCH!
Then had to file and razor clearance for the circlip and then paint the epoxy putty black and replace the little black circular cover with Silastic form a gasket.
A bit of friggin around but it seems to work :-)
I could tell you more but its in the wrong thread....need to find my rear brake loss saga and post there, I will say tho its looking good and bled up nicely, almost time for a test ride :-)
Araldite is a high strength 2 part epoxy adhesive, must have another name there if youve not heard of it.
So far so good, rear brake working nicely with no leaks, just stopped at Kirra beach pub for rissoles and mash n onion gravy, suns come back out so further testing is in order I reckon :-)
Stay tuned for a full report in my relevant thread.
Bottom line is Victory dont sell rebuild kits for rear calipers and if they did they'd cost a fortune!
Brembo 1 1/16" thats inch and a sixteenth seals fit and are a better seal.
