Gah, I don't think the xs750 MC will work. The price is right but it mounts completely differently.

I have a Chinese one with oval slots that allow for 40=5-50mm center to center.  GSXR I have are 50mm and so is an early R6. 

Lockheed made a race rear caliper with 55mm spacing but those are really expensive - if you can find one.  I have a new one here somewhere that came with some race bike resto that I did. I have it put aside to replace one on a TZ.

Try RD400 or XS and see what size they are.

You may want to ask for bolthole-spacing, just to be sure, that you guys in the US haven't got a different spacing or something like that.

Now that the holidays are over and spent, I stole a few hours to work on the race bike. A generous fellow on the sr500 Facebook page shipped me a used rear master and I also had new front brake lines and a grip full of crush washers show up in the mail so I decided to give the brakes a go.
And then I pulled my hair out all evening. No matter what I did, I couldn't get the front brakes to bleed. Even after an hour of pumping away at the mity-vac, these brakes won't bleed. As near as I can tell, the front master is fine and not leaking and it gives plenty of power. All the crush washers are new and nothing is leaking so I can tell.
I'm at a loss. I'm just going to have to keep tinkering.

You might need to prime the master a few times. I've had to hold my finger over the outlet and pump until it flows fluid well, then connect it and bleed air out of the joint.

Now that you say that, it reminds me of something. I tried to prime the master and I got excellent pressure at the line, but it wasn't sucking in any fluid. Later, I had this air bubble just before the master and no matter how many times I pumped it, the bubble wouldn't move. Maybe my inlet is clogged? However, I was able to get fluid into the calipers with a mity-vac.

I had this issue on my Honda after cleaning out a clogged with old fluid m/c. I tried everything, even a syringe from the calipers backwards...nothing would give me a bleed even though the m/c felt fine. There was a minute hole in the reservoir chamber/piston tract that allows fluid into the piston chamber, cleaned it out but still nothing!! I fitted a repro m/c from a trusted supplier and bingo first time bleed and all is well.
Still not too sure wtf was up with the original m/c?

I should just buy a rebuild kit or a new mc but I'm not sure what mine is. Stock gsxr? Anyone know what master this is?
