Hello, I'm just wondering if anyone can recommend any 0.5" bore master cylinders to me? I'm looking for something as small as possible total length wise (around 5" or less). I'm currently interested in these ones ( https://www.wilwood.com/MasterCylinders/MasterCylinderProd?itemno=260-5516 - https://www.wilwood.com/MasterCylinders/MasterCylinderProd?itemno=260-5516) but my main worry is that it might be too small and might not be able to release enough volume of brake fluid into the calipers (I'm using Wilwood PS-1 calipers for both front wheels). I'm also worried about how robust the pushrod mechanism is. Does anyone have any experience using these cylinders? I've also contacted Polaris for information about their various 0.5" cylinders but I haven't heard back from them yet. Thanks for any help.

if you know what calipers you are using, you can calculate how much fluid you need to move in order to actuate it. from there, you can decide for yourself if these cylinders will fit your application or not. 
my best tip in this competitions is when in doubt, use maths.
