Clutch Fluid Reservoir Update

My OEM Clutch Fluid Reservoir is leaking and I wonder if anyone has tried any after market reservoirs. My problem is that I have a steel braided line, so most rubber line units won't work.

If your RC51 doesn't bring you to your knees, you are not a righteous man...lol.

Buy an Aftermarket clutch master. or upgrade to a ZX14 clutch master. You'll be better off.

What does your braided line have to do with a leaking reservoir, or getting a new master?




I'm always right.

That's what I'm wondering.
Wouldn't a clutch master rebuild kit do the trick? It did for me a few years ago.

The reservoir is cracked on the bottom. All the one's I found on Ebay use tubes, so my braided lines wouldn't work with those. Anyway, I found a OEM in Hong Kong for $22.00.
