Anyone install the Speed Triple rear brake reservoir (A9620036) on the Street Twin? Looks like it may fit...

Why do you feel the need to change the one that's on it?
Not a need, mostly just an aesthetic choice, I'm looking at several options for drilling out part of the side covers, didn't want to see the white one behind there, I've measured it, and it looks like it will fit.

It looks like British Customs just came out with a rear reservoir.


Not a fan of those with no level window.

The fully-transparent ones have a side benefit, as a brake pad wear gauge.

Note the level accurately when the brake pads are new, and when they're due for replacement note where the level has dropped to. Mark it on the reservoir.

If there are no leaks, the missing fluid has just gone to replace the space left in the brake caliper cylinders as the pads wear. This means that at a glance you can tell the degree of wear of the pads just by noting where the level of the fluid sits...:)
