If you delete the rear reservoir, you would not need the cover to support it. Mine, is broken on one of the tabs that clip the reservoir into the cover on the back side...... I have the cover on the bike simply because it still hangs on in the 'right' place.
The only function I see that cover actually having is to keep the reservoir level so it is less likely to leak. As much as the bike would make the fluid slop around riding, I don't see that as a significant concern.
