And he said I can run with out them as long as I keep my eye on the caliper, with more frequent cleaning and such. But if I can get them locally without too much hassle I probably will. My master cylinder was full of crap, rust particles, ect.. I spent quite some time trying to get it clean without blowing old brake fluid all over the garage. Finally gave up and decided to run the master cylinder I've got off a CB400F. It's period, and looks very similar to the Suzi one. Who cares what it is as long as it stops me (and the bike)!
