The vent ports in the Master Cylinders have burrs and take out the seal over time. Rear MC had a high fail rate on 1st couple bikes and customers were losing there rear brake. One guy narrowly avoided a bad fall. Fixed after a quick hone and clean and new rebuild kit. Since then, on other bikes, he checks them right away. He told me that since you cant easily see the Burrs, he drags a Q-tip across the port inside the cylinder and if anything snags - he hones it. The honed ones feel perfect - nothing snags.
