Check and see if you are loosing fluid, if you are then im afraid its a new master cylinder, Brembo will not release the seals and they are no after market ones, Jools

I did the same 12 months ago, it is only a dust seal so does not matter, there is no chance of getting a replacement, I even looked at damaged cylinders on e-bay and at breakers but they still go for £50 !  'cos as said above, brembo do not release spares,  I  the  repair  as  with black  flexi superglue.  The trick is not to put the seal over the push rod, but to fit the seal in the cylinder and then slip the actuator rod through the hole  a bit of rubber or silcone grease helps

You can buy rebuild kits for the cast and forged M/C @ £35 a set but the parts differ for the most part to the oem M/C.
 
It's the oem version that you can't get kits for. The dust boot might be the same but it comes in the kit so you have to get the whole lot usually.

Thats what i thought Spoonz, would of saved me a shed load of $$ if they did fit. Does that mean that Brembo sell the seals for the aftermarket RCS mastercylinders as they are not model specific?? Jools

From what i can see the rebuild kit is the dustseal, piston push rod, main seal.
 
They sell it as a radial m/c kit so it may fit all radial M/C but not sure about oem
