Default Matching Hydraulic Clutch Master Cylinder.

Hello forum members.

I'm swapping a Bandit 1200 (B12) engine into my '88 600 chassis. Since the B12 has a hydraulic clutch master, I'd like to utilize it. However, the Bandit master is more horizontal than angled. It looks a little odd and it doesn't fit the clip-on quite right.

Does anyone know what other model of Suzuki motorcycle has a hydraulic clutch master that better matches the angled brake master of the Katana?

Rather then grab any late-model sport bike master, I'd like to find something that matches the Katana brake master, if possible.

Thank you all for your time.

Thanks for the reply. I'll take a look around and see if there are any left in existence.

I have a few more options and that makes me feel better.
93-97 GSXR-1100 and first generation 99-06 Hayabusa clutch master are very close.
These should be far easier to find then the 1100 Katana clutch master.
They all look fairly similar and match the 88 600 brake master pretty closely.

Are you going by looks or by bore size?

Both actually. They kind of look alike and the three clutch masters that I listed all have 14mm bore diameter.
