I would go with 7/8 1" the 3/4" is normally used just for the clutch. Probably too small for brakes.

1 inch for both front and back, more consistent feel for ur brakes. make sure ur balance bar is set right also very important... 3/4 cylinder will be like driving a car with power brakes but brake booster isnt working push done hard but nothing.

I would run 1 inch for the front b/c less distance to travel so less pressure needed and then a 7/8 for the rear more distance and more pressure needed to equal out the brake system w/ your bias bar set in the center.

You are misinformed. This is totally untrue.

Actually a smaller mc will give a spongy pedal, an oversize mc will cause a hard pedal with little feel.
