The 2012 DL1000 master cylinder I ordered off eBay arrived. That's the last year that model came with a 5/8" cylinder bore. Perfectly brand new condition for $38.40 w/ free shipping. It came with a bent lever (that was expected), but it's the same lever as my '17 so I re-installed my original one. The contacts on the attached brake light switch looked farther apart, so I swapped it for my original one.
Installation was a breeze and it firmed up the lever perfectly. No regrets choosing this route over a radial 19mm. Everything (mirror, hand guard, brake light switch, etc.) bolted back on just like original.
Very pleased. I was starting to notice that my original 14mm master cylinder was a little soft on hard braking with the new calipers. A problem no more.
