WTB - Rear brake fluid container

Hey gang,

Looking to buy the flat style rear brake fluid reservoir.

Looking for a full setup w/ the bracket.

Bd idea, unless you are attempting a concourse restoration.  Get a small after-market Japanese reservoir that will fit under the right battery cover and longer hose to connect to the master cylinder.  That way, the reservoir will be protected from UV light (plenty of that in LA) and prevent degradation of the plastic.  If you search, you should be able to find the late model K100 / K1100 version of this reservoir.

yeah, what RBM said.  I did this a couple years ago for about $5, Amazon or Ebay, plenty of vendors.  Works fine, used original hose.

Even if you were doing a concourse restoration, buying a used one would be a bad idea because of UV degradation that might already have occurred in it, so buy a new one if it's necessary.
