I have a 2007 ZX6R and I am thinking about moving the rear brake reservoir closer to the brake cylinder.

There is a hose clip bracket between the reservoir and the master cylinder and I was going to move the resevoir onto this bracket, so it will be slightly lower than it is now but still higher than the master cylinder.

Does any one know of any reason why i shouldn't do this??

Cheers

I can't see any problem mate, as long as the reservoir is higher than the master cylinder then all sould be fine I would have thought.

Moved the brake reservoir at the weekend and it works fine :) The hardest thing I found was trying to source some brake pipe!!

I had to cut the old pipe down as I tried to get a length of suitable rubber pipe for it and as soon as you tell people it's for a brake line (even though it is not under any pressure) the refuse to sell it to you.
So i figured i would cut the old one down and if I need to move it again then I will have to buy the pipe from Kwaki.

I'm probably a bit late on this, but if you want a brake pipe a specific length, Goodridge at Silverstone and Exeter are pretty helpfull. Just give them a call with the length and fittings required and they'll pop them in the post. If you have any problems, bung me an e-mail as I do know of someone else that can help.:cheers

Thanks mate, I managed to get the pipe the perfect shape and length by cutting the old one down. took me a little while to get it in the right position so that it didn't rub on anything but it is working a treat in it's new position now. :)
