1999 Mule 2500 Master Cylinder Rebuild

Recommended Posts

My master cylinder is leaking from the rod that goes to brake pedal. I had planed on replacing it with a new one as I had routinely seen them on eBay for $109 but now that I need one the cheapest used cykinder is $134. Does anybody know where I might find a seal kit for the cylinder?  Are all Mule cylinder's 11/16" diameter?

I think a Japanese company called Nissin makes all the brake related products for Kawasaki. You might can contact them.

@Travis Thanks. Yes it is a Nissin master cylinder (MC) with an 11/16" bore. I decided to buy a used MC from an later model Mule. It is diferent than mine in that the push rod is detached from the piston in the MC. On my MC the push rod is one with the piston in the MC which is a bad design as it will tend to cock the piston in its bore during brake application. I am hoping the newer designed MC will fit my 2500 or that I can modify the push rod to work while keeping it detached from the piston. $40 on ebay. I did find some Nissin rebuild kids but these were $40 or more and did not seem to match the components inside my MC. Wish me luck.

Thanks Travis,

Yes, all figured out and back on the trail again. I stumbled accross https://www.powersportsnation.com/ while looking at ebay ads and found a good condition $40 master cylinder from them. It arrived in only two days. I disassembled it, cleaned it, reassembled it  and installed it. Works like new again.

While in there I found my brake pedal return torsion spring was broken so ordered a new one off eBay that arrived today for installation tomorrow.

All good. Thanks for the follow up.   Mike

      The cables are sort of seized up on the emergency brake, they still work but i have to wiggle and pull on em to get them to release, i pulled the drum off but cant see a way to remove the cable. It is kind of dirty inside the drum where it was leaking so i need to run to the parts store and buy some parts cleaner so i can see everything better.
       The shop manual i have  does not cover parking brake cable removal, well.... it does kind of. it says "Remove parking brake cable at both ends" 🙄
       We'll see
       EDIT: ARRR! Looks like my rear axle seal is leaking, there is a small puddle on a machined step below the seal and it smells like Trans oil. felt around the wheel cylinder and it isn't coming from their.....  I guess my weekend is planned for me LOL

      Does anybody know where to get one of these bulbs? 
      It is the one that lights up when the park brake is applied. Same as the one that lights up when the engine is over temperature.
      I have checked several places locally without success.
      Thanks, Mike

      Anyone doing a mod on the parking brake?  It’s very awkward to press if you have long legs . 2019 Hisun sector 750

      I have a 2016 Cub Cadet Challenger 700 that has ~40-50 miles on it,,  and similar hours.     It had the Brake recall completed in summer of 2017 and in summer of 2018 after sitting for a month of non use the brake pedal pressure became soft and would not stop quickly as normal.   I took it to the dealer and they "fixed" it and it worked fine for the past year but again this past weekend I took it out after not using it for 5 weeks and the pedal is soft again and takes forever to stop.  I plan to call me dealer again to see if they will fix again but I am wondering if anyone else has seen this and if anyone knows what it could be.      No visible leaks and machine is not worked hard.  I use it to drive around my property.

      It's been leaking VERY slowly over the past couple years, just  had to add a minute amount of brake fluid every few months. Now i have to i add about 3/4 of a cup every 5 days.
      i took the rear tire off, where it is leaking from, cleaned up the outside of the drum and it looks like the fluid is leaking from where the   "outer" drum meats the inner drum, #41038. guessing its the brake cylinder inside..... any other thoughts. I made sure the brake line is tight too.
