Front Break Oil Cup (Master Cylinder Reservoir)?

I have a 99 CBR900RR, and I'm looking for a new front break oil cup and mounting bracket. I've found the OEM one online, but I've seen quite a few "universal fit" versions that seem somewhat smaller. Will these smaller cups work just as well?

Here is a link to the part: 45511-KV3-016 CUP, OIL $17.52

I only need the cup, possibly the tubes, and the bracket. Any suggestions?

Also, I've seen this model on Amazon, and it matches my bike a bit better, will it fit?

As long as it has enough volume for twin four-pistons calipers it should be fine.

I'm not quite sure how to check its overall needed volume.

I bought one of those, it looked nice enough.
But it only held half the volume, the ID of the nipple at the bottom of the reservoir was notably smaller, and the tubing they provided allowed the brake fluid to sweat out when hot.
I changed it out for a new OEM unit.

Eh, I use a 30ml Brembo cup, and have never had an issue. Everything you need is here, no waiting and super fast shipping.

It looks like it bottom mounts but the original looks like it was a side mount.
