      Not looking at jazzing up a shitting looking brake reservoir but replacing it to blend into the bike more. Seen on some bwns they have a flat kind that blend into the bar and look as it's part of the bike and not random tub added on.

            See, look tyson, i helped.

            BTW, the thing about a reservoir is that it has to sit above the master cylinder. Which means you can't really have on integrated into the bar unless you fuck around moving the M/C, which will probably mean you'll have to make the lever sit lower.

                Spose that's doable- but is there any aftermarket kits that do that? Seems like a lot of expense for little gain.

                  the busa one is way up under the tail and is very hard to access

                  this bolts straight in to the master US$60

                          Unless the reservoir is pressurized.
                          Would have to be bled and pressurized above the master cylider obviously.
                          As you say, lots of effort for minimal gain.

                          Those Beringer brakes look like an awesome bit of kit.

                              As for your reservior, why not just leave it the way it is? Just about every bike has one and as other members have said; there's not really a huge amount you can do about it. Either cover it, move it or leave it For the cost, I'd just as sooner leave it.
