But a rebuild kit. All you need to do now is tear down the cylinder, and replace any worn out parts.Make sure you hone out your cylinder and reassemble it all back together. Place the cylinder back on the bike bolt it down and bleed out all the trapped air from the caliper.

The master cylinder on a Harley is best replaced versus repair. The seams of the cylinder are laser welded in the factory which is impossible to reproduce at home

Basically all you do is just disassemble the whole thing and buy a rebuild kit to replace any worn parts. Then you may need to hone out your cylinder then reassemble it all back together. The just bolt it back on and bleed the system of any air trapped int the caliper.

You're best bet is to purchase the proper rebuild kit for your motorcycle from your local dealer, this kit comes with everything, including instructions. Not enough space here to respond.

reove master cylinder from the bike, make sure you do not get brake fluid on painted surfaces. Then clean all the grime off the master cylinder and take it to your local motorcycle specialist. It is your life let a pro do it.
