Whichever way you look at it the master cylinder will need to be removed. I'd say the o ring on the primary piston is perished and is causing the leak, it can be replaced, but it may be less fiddling around and get a reco unit. Being part of the brake system, also better for your peace of mind.

My m/c was leaking between the m/c and booster interface. As stated the o-rings are most likely finished. You can reco the m/s but i just got the whole thing replaced.

agree with previous posts - i'm getting mine replaced as it's just started to leak, along with 4 new discs and pads - no point doing things bit by bit when it could mean the difference between life and death!!
