If you can get your hands on the right screw driver (JIS, not Philips) you might not have to drill anything...

A m/cylinder from a Suzuki GS500 or Kawasaki Ninja 500 will work and it looks very similar. Just make sure it's from a naked bike and not a faired bike, the latter may not have a mirror mount.

Also make sure it is a 1/2" bore master cylinder, some (with double discs) will be 14mm. The stock Triumph part is 11mm bore.
