I want to replace the sight glass/inspection lens on the front master cylinder of my 1988 XRV 60, but I can not seem to find a spare or any information about the size of the lens. Does anyone have any good information about this? :happy8:

I am pretty sure the XL600V shares the same master cylinder, but I can not find anything about that model either.

Regards

Erling, Norway

Yes, that seems to be it. I am at work in Scotland right now, so I can not measure it myself, but I got a measurement of 18mm from a fellow 650-owner.

(OP here by the way. I managed to log in to my existing account..)

Our base (I work on a ship) is in Dunoon outside of Scotland, and this is where we are working right now. We also go up to the Hebridees occasionally. Where in Norway?

That’s funny, I work on a ship also! I’ve spent many years working at Ekofisk, but been to many other fields in Norway, and been lucky to visit a few towns and cities.. Would love to ride up to Nordkapp sometime:cheers:

Hehe, that is funny! I work on a live fish transporter, so I've never been out on the oilfields myself. I would like to take that ride too. Me and my cousin flew up there in a Piper Cherokee from the sixties a few years ago. Really great trip. :thumbright:

Just let me know if you ever ride past Ålesund. :happy6:

Go to a watch/clock shop. See if they can fix you up with a crystal for a watch.
I replaced the glass on an oil dip stick that had a temp gauge. Worked like a charm.

I am probably going for one of the ebay-kits. I want to have a closer look at the master cylinder before ordering anything though, so I guess it will have to wait until I am home. I might just plug the banjo and bring it onboard with me next time for a respray and a full rebuild.

A watch crystal would be nice I guess as watches are one of my other nerdy interests. ;)
