    Default Next up, a tiny rear brake fluid reservoir.

    It's not that I'm obsessed with reservoirs ( http://www.chopcult.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1285 ) but the stock rear Nissin was bulky and ugly.

    Fast forward 2 years and I was looking over the Hypermotard I had recently purchased. The Brembo brake and clutch reservoirs were small and the brackets were a really nice alloy. To make matters even better they were bent in such a way that would probably fit perfect on my bike. I sold the Ducati mid summer but my buddy Cam switched out his reservoirs and saved them for me. After cleaning, flushing and soaking the reservoir for a few days I cut and bent the bracket a bit. I'll probably change out the tubing this winter.

    Nissin VS Brembo






    Done

    there's a science behind master cylinder size. use the google machine and you'll find stuff like http://xlforum.net/vbportal/forums/a...p/t-44210.html
