I’ve got a 1978 GL1000. I bought a rear master cylinder kit for this year, but when I took the master cylinder apart the piston is different. The old one has a rubber “boot” on the piston but the one on the rebuild kit does not. I’ve noticed that the 75-77 rebuild kits do have it. Am I mistaken that the rebuild kit I have isn’t right, and maybe an older master cylinder was installed/swapped onto my bike?

Hi and welcome! I have a 78, but the rear master is one of the VERY few items I have never touched. It just works - but I am scrupulous about maintaining clear, clean fluids.

Refer to this page. Your master should look like this:

Most kits that I have bought had the piston rod boot separate in the kit. Lube it all up good with brake fluid and it will stretch on. Tight, but it will go. If the boot with the hole that fits the piston rod isn't in the kit, contact the vendor.

Also, every exploded view I see shows a check valve that goes in before the spring but I don’t see it in mine nor is there one in the rebuild kit, but the older kit has one. Is it the case that every exploded view for the GL1000 shows the 75-77 master cylinder or are they the exact same but the rebuild kits have that difference?
