    I replaced my master not long ago but I love the idea of the longest possible life and smoothest operation. If I don't need to replace it right away, what's the shelf life like on a unit, if there is one? And also, could you do the same thing with the slave?

    very interesting. I hope that some vendor will offer a clutch master with re-engineered bore diameter and (lighter) spring!
