Hmm........ might not have the capacity to open a clutch fully, my Viento uses a .75 bore master cylinder you can see it in my profile.

It's what DAX did on their ZZR1100-powered rush.

That's what I used, only because it was free with my donor ZZR1100

Due to the small bore, using a bike rear brake master should give a nice clutch pedal feel (but light) to a bike clutch. Seen it recommended sevaral times. As long as it gives enough stroke at the slave you should be fine. The mounting would be the only issue.

Hi as adithorp said the smaller the bore of the cylinder the easier it is to press,
sorry I did'nt realise that you were using a bike engine in your car, in that case the throw of the clutch would be less so a bike master cylinder should be ok.
