I'd try and buy something thats a known brand like Wilwood or Girling itself. I'm not sure how durable the cheaper versions would be to be honest!

This should work well with the Honda slave, uncommon to actually change the slave on the gearbox itself, usually people change the master cylinder itself.

Ok I shall keep looking about until I find a better manufacturer, I might buy a new slave as it looks a bit rough so I can get another Honda one, then at least I shouldnít have any issues with old parts, thanks everyone

Were there different master cylinders available from Honda?

I keep seeing post after post here about people wanting a better clutch pedal because it feels too heavy or on/off - is everyone going soft or something? :P
I'm running a honda master cylinder and honda slave and have no issues with the setup (both standard CRX parts). Feels like a modern car (with a slightly heavier setup) or even my standard SPI mini doesnt seem that much different. I even drive the vtec mini car without shoes on and I'm only a 50kg person - it's not like I have a lot of weight to fight it with!

No, mine's from a CRX and it no way feels like a modern clutch. Don't know the answer really, but guess the .625 Girling might be it

From memory, using the Girling master wasn't terrible it felt like a mini clutch to me. It certainly wasn't a super light modern car clutch though, if thats what you're looking for.

I quite like the slightly heavier clutch, the modern euro boxes are two light, no feel to them, so the mini will feel like a mini too with the clutch peddle having some feel to it, cheers

I used the original master cyl on mine and not only was it very heavy but it also over threw the release bearing, pushing the friction plate back onto the flywheel. I fitted a girling cyl but I’m sure it was a .5, not a .625
