check out what I have done..

the pictures should be self explanatory,, but essentially I used the triple clamp to mount the reservoir
it's low,, great,, But it may be TOO low. What do you all think? would it work?

Think it might flap about a bit Bill. Plus the idea of the reses above is if there is any air it goes above the fluid & not into the cylinder as it will do here ,possibly causing brakes no worky !!!

it won't flap,, it's just right to be nice and tight,, but you are right about how it may be too low and suck air,, but it might not suck air depending on the fluid level in the container (so long as the fluid level stays above the tube in the container) but it may have to depend too much on not cornering too much or hitting any bumps in the corners.

oh ,, my name is BYRON,, BYYRROOON,, not BILL .. geez :)
thanks for the feedback though, because what you said is exactly what I am thinking is the problem. I think I will have to find an alternative

Up there for thinking! I do like the look alot but i'm thinking that it may be a little low. I'm no expert so don't know but can you keep me informed cause I may just copy you if it does work! :)

Those Rizomas are too tall, I’d like to see something a little shorter and right on top of the master cylinder….just like Brutale

PS.

Just saw what Shift-Tech did on his bike......much better alternative in my eyes, too pricy though.

They are gravity fed so they may work for a while but you run the risk of trapping an air bubble. You could raise the reservoir just a few mm and should be ok.

Not a thing, I'm sorry but knowing that people already hate the unadjustable damper and coming across the picture of the Arrow, I figure I'd toss it in there, sorry for drifting the thread toward a different direction.
Cheers!:)

On a side note (another one), I just ordered a DIY carbon cans from your guy, I went for the tri ovals, I hope everything works out!
Cheers!

I went ahead and mounted them in the same location as the stock reservoirs.. the aren't really any taller than the stock ones but they look taller because they are not as wide (a taller aspect ratio:))



Check out my mad skillz makin washers out of pennies :) (heads up so they're lucky)




over all they look pretty good. I wasn't sure I was going to like how tall they were but they look fine once mounted up.

if you could drill the mount hole (it's threaded) all the way through you might be able to, (it's currently threaded but it could be either drilled through smooth or drilled smaller and tapped the rest of the way).
It might not look as good with mine because I used the larger sized fluid container for the brake and the medium for the clutch. the medium might would fit.
I think I might keep my eye open for a nicer washer set up but I kind of like my pennies.
