Default Rear Brake Reservoir

I could not find if a thread has already been started, but I don't like the rear brake reservoir. Is there a way to move it or remove it?

No, you can't remove the reservoir.

What is it that you don't like about it?

Oh I just don't like they way they hang under the bike. It would be nice to relocate it to somewhere hidden. I just think that they are ugly.

Calling it ugly seems a bit harsh.

I suppose you could cover it... maybe cut the top off an argyle sock...

I dont like the weight of the rear disc, caliper and pedal,
but one day I might need to use it.

I suggest a Harley and a custom chopper forum may be more to your liking?

you CAN remove it , as long as there is fluid to the top of the little hoes that connects to the reservoir , the brake will still work. the reservoir is just to give you a visual that there's fluid ...they have little cap reservoirs.

i relocated my rear reservoir to the handlebars and now im going to do this....

You can use a piece of clear tygon hose and a cap. HRC has a kit. I use it on my track bike.

The green HRC hose from the kit gets funny after a wile with brake fluid. I replaced it with AGG racing hose. He make a kit you can buy.

Hahah. True. I think I've customized just about every model Harley makes for friends, family, and myself. And the only thing i wanted to change on this bike was the tag bracket. The muffler bugged me, but not enough to spend a ton of money for no significant gain. This bike is great from the showroom floor.

I like the tube and cap idea. I think if I do something like that it will clean up nicely.
I feel like the bike looks more expensive then it is. All except for that one little container. That has bothered me since day one. I don't think I will rerout it to the bars, but that is a cool concept. Thanks everyone!
