Sight Glass
The sight glass on both the brake and clutch master cylinder are soft and cracking on my Aspencade. I've heard they can be replaced with watch crystals. Has anyone ever attemped this or replaced them some other way? Their not leaking, just think it looks bad, am I too picky? Tongue

I would be worried about creating a leak and then not be usable afterwards.

If Id'a known it would last this long I would've taken better care of it !!!

Might be worth getting a used master and try rebuilding the windows. A couple possibilities that come to mind would be to make new ones out of plexiglass or have a glass shop cut you a couple round single weight pieces of glass. I'd bet that you could put them in with epoxy or silicon seal, both of those are pretty chemically inert.
