    Brake Reservoir

    Ok So I bled my XJ650 brakes 9 months ago after somoen else fixed them. Not a problem. But I did notice that after I put everythig back together after a while a small amount of fiuld would seep around the edges. Well I recently had my oil chnaged and low and I think they cheked the level and so now There seems to be some seepage.

    I put a new gasket in and new screws.

    I was thinking maybe its just what was sitting on the edge of the resiviour when I sealed it. Any one else have this experience?

    Thanks
    Rev Rob

    Re-dry it a few times and make sure it's not seepage. Could it be over full?

    I think it was just the excess on the lip of the resiviour. I assume if it was over full the excess would come out that whole on the one side of the cover?

    The hole is for the rubber gasket that displaces low fluid and seals the reservoir to expand and contract I believe.
