​The Importance of the Master Cylinder Push Rod

When it comes to KTM, Husqvarna, and GAS GAS motorcycles, one of the most important components is the lever master cylinder push rod. Although it may seem like a small part, the lever master push rod plays a crucial role in ensuring your motorcycle’s front brake performance and overall safety.

What is a Master Cylinder Push Rod?

Before we dive deeper into the importance of a lever master cylinder push rod, let’s first discuss what it is. A lever master push rod is a component that links your motorcycle’s brake lever to the master cylinder. This connection is what enables you to apply pressure to the brake system, allowing your motorcycle to slow down or come to a stop. It’s essentially what helps bring your motorcycle to a safe halt when using your brake lever.

When to Replace your Master Cylinder Push Rod?

The lever master cylinder push rod is a part on your motorcycle that typically does not see too much wear and tear, so it rarely needs to be replaced from that. The main issue with this part is that it can easily break off and get lost in the event of a crash. Sometimes when you break your lever on your bike in a crash, the master cylinder push rod can snap off. Since the part is small, it can easily get lost. Although it seems like such a tiny part would not be that big of a deal on your motorcycle, your brake will not function properly when you pull in the lever without it.

Choosing the Right Lever Master Cylinder Push Rod

When it comes to choosing a replacement lever master cylinder push rod, it’s important to make sure you’re getting the right part for your specific motorcycle. This is not a universal part, and you will need a certain type depending on what model of dirt bike you have. Not all push rods are created equal, which means you should always stick with parts that are designed for your specific make and model. Additionally, make sure to choose high-quality components to ensure that your new push rod will be durable and perform well. This little part has to be precisely manufactured in order to ensure optimal performance. For that reason, you want to make sure you are getting it from a reliable source that has precise machining.
