I haven't rebuilt the V-rod brake or clutch master cylinders, but I have done other bikes.

For those who have done the V-rods; how tight is the tolerance between the piston bore and piston assembly?

From my experience, the piston skirt fills the gap and there is a good amount of space, so reducing the bore by .002 shouldn't be an issue.

Yes, No, maybe so?

Why? I don't want to do chrome or re-powder, but want them to look nice. So, I'm thinking anodizing. However, masking isn't 100% and I'm thinking that having the bore annodized will prevent what little wear will occur. (Other than the lever pivots, I've never worn one out.) Anodizing does create a build up, but it is much.

What do you think?
