What are the cleanest solutions you've seen to get rid of the ugly plastic brake reservoir on the SE models?

I'm aware of the $100+ BC and LSL billet reservoirs. Something about dropping that much for a little aluminum cup is hard for me to digest.

Anyone know if it's possible to put the OEM T100 master cylinder/reservoir/lever on the SE?

Or anyone have experience with these cafe racer little tubes that replace the reservoir and completely hide from site?

Thanks for weighing in.

I didn't find anywhere that said so but the Triumph reservoir T2025066 is a direct replacement and looks awesome. Took some searching and eventually found one on ebay for $45.

Agreed, love the OEM factory one and would even pay the $75 for it new (it's out of stock with Triumph) but the only ones I've seen on ebay for the last couple weeks have been the rear one which I don't really care about. Thanks for confirming part number I'll keep watching ebay for a lucky break :)

Looking at that part number closer on Triumph's website it looks like that's for a few other bikes but not Bonnie, are you sure that's the number?

Update: hmm just looked closer at them and by the photos it actually looks like pretty much all of them would fit. It really just needs to bolt on with the one hole and hook the hose up.. might roll the dice on one of these, what do you think?

The T100 has 1'' bars, SE 7/8'' bars so won't fit without a struggle.

Ah of course, that option is off the table. Thanks for chiming in

The photo I posted is from my bike after the install. Per my sig, it's a 2009 Bonne Mag ("almost" an SE) and per my post, "I didn't find anywhere that said so" but it looked right so I took a shot. There's one on Amazon right now for $80.

Sounds good, thanks for chiming in. I took a stab at one with a different part number but the photo looks exact same for $70. I'm sure with a little modification I'll get it to work. Thanks for the idea!

Got the reservoir today..looks awesome & great quality but I realized that like yours, this one is likely for the other side of the handlebars. The fluid level window faces forward and to the right instead of straight toward the rider. Kind of a bummer as it would be much easier to not notice the fluid getting low or some issue with the brakes, whereas before you could check randomly while riding.

I'll look at it better tomorrow and I may try to bend the bracket it's mounted on so that it faces the rider if it can be done in a clean way without looking haggled.

Either way it's a win though, looks a million times better than that plastic thing!

yeah... agree the BC is a little pricy for the cup, but it does clean up the look

Yeah no doubt, that is quite clean removing the hose and bracket. I wish someone made one that was lower and wider, they all stick up very high
