    Hi guys,

    I'm going to be installing the master cylinder maintenance kit on the front master cylinder of my wife's G650GS. I've removed the boot, spring, and plunger. Any ideas how to remove the master cylinder? There appears to be a groove for a thick and wide screwdriver. Just wanted some advice before I do something dumber than normal :)

    Hi guys-
    Leaking front brake master cylinder on my 2013 G650GS ...
    Question is- it's the little rubber boot that goes between the brake lever and into the master cylinder.. it's got a little nick in it-
    I've ordered the 'repair kit' but am unsure if it comes with a replacement rubber boot? If it doesn't-does that mean I have to buy a whole master clyinder ??!
    Any info appreciated!
