The picture you linked to is the reservoir for the 2010 and older .
This is the 2010 and older

this is the 2011 and up


When I mounted the 2011 + to my 06 I had to make a custom bracket.

Looks like the dealer sold you the wrong unit. The swap should have been straight across.

Thanks, id say we should trade but I destroyed my old bracket making a new one. I guess as long as its mounted somewhat level its all good, although the angled hose connector would work better on my bike

Probably shouldn't be too creative with your brakes though...

I made my bracket out of a 6mm wrench , bent it with a torch , powdercoated it and stuck it on . Should be no problems .

as promised.

Sorry I don't know how to set orientation on attachments as they view the right way up on my PC.

Also you need to reverse the connection for the speed as the mirror plug bolt is too fat to fit into the thinner section which I now have fitted to the bottom of my resevoir.
