954 front master cylinder

I bought a 954 back in May. After my 600 Hornet, the power, handling, and braking of the blade is just amazing.

Question:

The front brake master cylinder is kind of leaning over at around 45 degrees from the horizontal, i.e. if I were to just remove the filler cap, the brake fluid would just pour out - to top up the level, I would have to first disconnect the resevoir from the brake lever assembly and get somebody to hold it upright.

I hope this is clear without any pics.

I had just assumed that this was some poor design. But looking a few picks, I'm now not so sure. Can anybody advise?

Re: 954 front master cylinder

With the bike leaning on the sidestand and the bars turned fully to one side ( I forget whether it is left or right, but you'd find out quick enough) the fluid levels out, and you can add as needed.

Re: 954 front master cylinder

Just in addition. If your front brake reservour needs more break fluid I would recommend bleeding the system and fill with new fluid. It is not a good idea to add fluid if you are not sure what fluid is already in the system.
