If I order a new M/C will the known issue resolve itself?
Is there an aftermarket Master Cylinder anyone would recommend as a good replacement upgrade?

$74.49 is not a bad price for peace of mind.
Wonder if the 2007 version is the same, or is it improved, without the known issues.
Will it work on a 2004 or is it a departure in design?

Just want to move forward without worrying about future problems.

According to Ronnies, the '05 and '06 use the same part 42521-04

I think the 07 master is designed for DOT 4 fluid but I am not sure

throttle stop works wonders also.
brakes are a science nowdays. the old 74ch rear drum sucked but changing shoe material helped greatly at reduce drum life. the front sucked a little less but same thing, going to more aggressive pad at same cost, only bad thing is it does add to torque steer on hard braking. my 01 sport with dual fronts works nicely.
but remember one thing, a locked wheel has zero steering.

I go through one rear master cylinder a year so no they are not improved. Keep in mind I am putting 20-25,000 miles a year on my bike most years. I'm also on my 3rd rear caliper after 240,000 miles

2007 they did switch to Dot 4 fluid, not sure what changes other than those to possibly accommodate the different fluid were made

I also have had issues with it. I got a new cylinder and rebuild the old. My problem always happened when I changed the rear tire. I happened on to a you tube vid on rear breaks. I don`t know how to give the link so here is what to look for on you tube. Rear Break Caliper Alignment - fix rear break. It is by Phil Chapman. Before I did this the piston moved but you could see that the pads were not touching the disc correctly. Be careful not to remove the bolt all the way. I used a dumbbell to hold the peddle down. After this I could see the pads hit correctly and had better rear breaks. To bleed the breaks I use a Miny Vac which pulls the fluid out the bleeder. Good luck and if anyone can help with the link to you tube or the Miny Vac chime in.
