    Where to buy a Hayes disk brake master cylinder?

    Due to my own personal stupidity I managed to strip the threaded plastic hole in the master cylinder of my rear Hayes disk. The plug screw seems to not be leaking for now, but it turns and doesnt ever really get tight fitting. Where can I get individual parts for this? I would even be happy having to buy the whole lever assembly but all I can find on any of the on-line stores is the whole setup from lever back to disk. Granted that is not really to expensive any more, but if I could pay $50 instead of $100 I would be happy.
    thanks

    I'm not really familiar with the design, but couldn't you just retap the hole, or use a heli-coil to fix it?

    Heli-coil would NOT be good in this instance. Plus it's a small screw!

    ANY, and I'm talking almost ANY decent shop should be able to get individual parts from Hayes for you. Almost all the wholesale houses that the shops order from can get you small parts from Hayes.

    If you want to go online, I've found that Cambria Bicycle Outfitters has a pretty extensive small parts for Hayes selection.http://www.cambriabike.com/brakes/ha...e_adapters.htm

    That site looks good, now to figure out if one of the cartridge kits is what I need.

    Go to your bike shop and ask for a catalog from Hawley or some of the others.

    They have full blown schematics with all the individual part nos.
