    It appears the "T" is tied into the clutch...? Love the throttle cables running across the headlight.Name:  IMG_2350.JPG

    I see...hydraulic clutch.
    BMW has their own mineral oil for their clutch system in case it leaks into the crankcase.
    Brake fluid in the oil pan sucks.

    Can't imagine getting the bubbles out of the long clutch reservoir tube would be easy...

    Shared brake / clutch reservoirs are nothing new, but he could have placed the res in a more concealed position. There's no pressure in those lines so the zip ties shouldn't be a problem (although, again, not the tidiest or ultimately best solution).

    You can position it below the level of the MC's - you just need to make sure you get the air out of the lines first up.

    Come on - flame me for this
