Float in front brake master cylinder

Take a look at http://www.ronayers.com/fiche/200_03...r_cylinder.cfm
Any idea what #5 actually does? I changed my brake fluid the other day and was just wondering. It just looks like it floats there for no reason.

Re: Float in front brake master cylinder

I *think* it's to reduce sloshing (is that a word?) of the brake fluid...

Re: Float in front brake master cylinder

its there to prevent air bubbles forming in the fluid. mountain bikes also have this design for that sole purpose for rugged terrain riding.
