Larger master cylinders will move more volume, but create less pressure. It also shortens the movement of the brake pedal.

A smaller MC will increase the pressure, and move less fluid. But require more pedal movement. IMO, a little more pedal movement is good, because they are easier to modulate at the edge.

If you're going to replace the MC, I'd go smaller. Like a 3/4".
