I had my mechanic switch out the old bars for new Daytona's. Well one big problem---the master cylinder is designed for the buckhorns they came off of and subsequently the level is way off. So any suggestions? And if I have to replace all together can I purchase a used Honda CB 750/950/etc master cylinder from ebay to replace? -A

I have the same situation but I never thought the master cylinder needed to be level (except obviously when opening/bleeding) otherwise how would the brakes work when leaning. Am I wrong? My brakes seem to work just fine.

All it needs is to be full of fluid. Turn the handlebars in a way so that it is level and fill it to the top. Put a towel on the tank in case you drip some.
