    Tygon tubing/rear brake res. delete

    I searched the forum and couldn't find anything... Has anybody done this? My rear brake reservoir is mounted by ziptie to a bolt where the rear pass. pegs used to go...

    My only concern is that there may be heat from the rear cylinder (or exhaust) that would cause damage to the tube?

    Something like this:

    Order a cheap remote reseviour and make your own bracket out of aluminum.
    Thatís what I did.
    If you want Iíll make you one but itíll cost you $50

    The bracket is held in by the same fasteners that hold the master cylinder to the frame. Bracket is actually sandwiched between the two.

    I’m joking about the $50
    But if you’re interested in making one I can send you more pics.
    PM me if you’re wanting more pics.

    Looks better than a whacky tube.
    IMHO

    That bike doesn't look like a Buell? Looks like a Honda?

    I used a Brembo master cylinder with an Integrated Reservoir

    This looks awesome. Too bad I don't have heel guards on my bike, but I still think it's sleek. Have any more pics?

    Itís a rizzoma or possibly a knock off that I found on amazon for $20. Itís CNCíed aluminum and has the rizzoma logo on it.
    But who knows, either way it works for me.

    No heel guards?
    Please post a pic, Iím curious to see what that looks like.

    Previous owner removed heel guards, installed adjustable Rizoma rear sets. I'm also not sure of what MC is being used (w/ the spring).

    Actually, here is a close up of the setup

    That is the stock master, the spring comes with the Rizoma rearsets and is added on to the master.
