I'm lucky I still have a hand right now,the tree came quick and I took my hand off the bar.I got thrown off the bike,I brushed myself off but my front master cylinder is demolished.

The question.
Will a master cylinder from a '99 CR250 work? They are both dot 4,the only difference I see is the brake line bolts to the back rather than the front but it reaches.Any issues? They are both dual piston calipers so I would imagine the master cylinder would work.Anyone?

Not sure it'll work or not,but if you have one sitting around might as well try it. If it doesn't work check e-bay for one.

I put it on last night and I actually like how the master cylinder sits lower on the bars,it puts the lever in a better position as well.I topped off the fluid and bled the line this morning and took it for a spin.It works great.That could've been really expensive if I hadn't had that laying around.
I actually have and entire '99 CR250 laying around,everything but the frame.It had factory connection suspension front and rear that was tuned for my weight.I wish that stuff would bolt up.
