Front Brake seized - will not return fluid to reservoir

Should I take apart the master cylinder to clean out the return hole or can this be done by a dental pick through the reservoir?

My piston comes out but doesn't return with clamp or hand unless I open up the bleed screw. I can see some debris in the small return hole up top when I replaced the reservoir with an OEM replacement.

Try and clear it any way you can without damaging the hole too much.If you have access to compressor try that as well.There comes a point with some MCs they are not worth servicing but the good news is there's some pretty good after market ones around at decent prices that we can use.

Several member's on CC's site have bought from here and are very very happy with them.Nice to have a new MC methinks rather than a dodgy 30 year old one,.Just a thought :)


PS
Sometimes they auction them and one member got one for 40 bucks!
