Where did you relocate the rear brake reservoir? I've been trying to map that out in my head all week and haven't come up with a solid solution yet!
well i eliminated the resevior all together and just ran a tube up under the right side of the plastic. The tube itself holds enough fluid to supply the master cylinder. i added a breathable cap to the top of the tube and routed it to were i could check it regularly.

good idea:)

looks good,from the wear mark on the rear tire you like the corners.

took an hour or so but i just eliminated a bunch of the junk that was hanging off the back. and yeah ill probably get a wider tire as soon as this one wear down, it would look alot better :)

I'd love some pictures of your brake reservoir solution! I'm going to be welding up an exhaust for my little thumper sometime after the first service and I plan to use a rather unconventional location for the exhaust bracket... I'm also deleting the passenger pegs like you did.

Just a peice of hose ran up the right side. it sits in between the gap. The blue peice is a small breathable cap. Gets the job done

My mechanic said he might be able to fit a 160 on the back if I remove the plastic. I don't know alot, but would I need a new rim to fit that? And I'd definitely have to widen the front one to match that.

The problem with the rear rake resevoir is that brake fluid will take on or absorb water. Brake fluid should always be kept dry (sealed). So I am not sold on this vented cap, it is a cool idea, brakes dont need a lot of volume unless they are leaking and that is a whole different problem. But the moisture has to be kept out or the fluid could loose its hydraulic properties.
