front brake resevoir

I need to replace my front brake reservoir.
The mounting tab is partially broken.
I'd probably be fine with an OEM, but I want to get some recommendations from you guys.
What reservoir are you using now, what would you recommend for me?
No gold or carbon fiber.
I don't have those colors anywhere else on my bike, (except the calipers) just don't want to look like PepBoys bling.

Can you hold off?...I'm going to send MB a trick little reservoir bracket and Brembo res cups to him to copy.

If you can get by with some other set up we can hook you up sir. Going to get copies for myself, Duckie, Stig. I'm sure MB will be down and you are more than welcome sir.



This is the only pic I have of the setup mounted...this is on Stig's bike.

Looking at just over a month by MB time frame. You just have to source the Brembo res cups which should be straight forward.

Ummm ya...although I never said it you were already on it.

What comes around goes around sir...as long as we don't put to much pressure on MB. He says turn around about a month so expect more like 2 as we all know life gets in the way and the unexpected always cones up.

Just let me know when you want the coin for shipping it all there and my two fluid reservoirs. I can not wait to get my clutch and brakes back together with Accossato masters and give em a try.

Thanks for the offer Nobody -- But I see a OEM cup is only $20 from HondaEastToledo. Probably go that route, or one of the black billet reservoirs I see on Ebay.
Has anyone tried the billet cups I'm talking about?

No worries sir...the offer will always be open as I will no doubt be getting some spares made up as well, worse case I'm sure MB will keep the program and would be able to crank out brackets when needed. Hopefully...

I have never really liked the billet front res cups but I know I will consider one of these in the near future...but the price is just a little steep for what you get.

But if Madbuyer was so inclined to make one cheaper I would DEFINITELY buy one right now!...


This mounts to your stock Nissin rear brake master, cleans the area up nice.

Ok guys just an update...the res cups and bracket are on the down to Madbuyer...we are talking materials, so if any of the folks involved (Duckie, Stig, chaos and JD) have any input let me and MB know.

Oh and if anyone has any ideas about the clutch side chime in.

I'm really rather surprised how sturdy the nylon one is that I'm sending down...

What I am worried about is messing up the finish of where these mount to the forks. UMWH or a like plastic with a bit thicker clamp would work.

Aluminum or titanium would be okay but that's where it get dicey with screwing up the fork finish.

Anyway, please do send some feedback and if anything we make a batch of plastic ones and then do a life test.
