What is everyone using for the neoprene plug on the brake fluid reservoir? I got mine at AutoZone and I discovered that I get small amount of brake fluid leaking out of the tip of the plug. I think it's the seam on the plug that's leaking. It has happened with 2 different plugs. I should have taken pics but I cleaned it off and installed a 1/2" plug over the 3/8 plug for now. Any ideas?

I believe napa sells the EPDM Rubber plugs you need. little screw type hose clamps are usually too big to tighten up that small so I use zip ties to tighten the plug.

I have a bunch of the EPDM plugs in the correct size for the brake master cylinder. Bought them in bulk for the GTO remote reservoir install kit I sell. I too use a small zip tie to secure the EPDM plug ( the EPDM plug fits so well it really isn't needed ). PM me if you need the EPDM plugs or anything else.

Well guys I purchased this Ring Bros Billet reservoir for JRE to install with my ideal G master cylinder

the Ring Bros Billet reservoir appears to piss out fluid out the top of the housing..

I just got a call from Ted @ JRE giving me bad news about my beautiful billet Housing that has for ever problem of pissing fluid every time the clutch is depressed

as there is no inner baffle like from any typical master cylinder resivoir to hold brake fluid or separate the fluid from the atmosphere

I have few hours of Ted's time to machine a new kewl housing and get it installed and bled and it pissed out fluid upon first push of the clutch.

It make me mad that this reservoir is not what we need for a remote reservoir and COST me hours to find out it will not work as expected!!!!


Had Ted order up 92065790 - RESERVOIR

Sorry to hear that beautiful reservoir didn't work out as planned. Upside is the GTO reservoir is off national back order and you should have one very quickly. I just received 4 from my local dealer after waiting several weeks for them. Now I wish I bought the remote clutch bleeder line that a C5 member was making/selling here last year that can be installed without removing the transmission. It appears the Tick performance version requires the trans to be pulled to install.

Back from JRE the GM Resevoir installed as well as replaced the brake / clutch resevoir with one from the L99 thats along with the braided stainless line that is also heat wrapped for added protection from underhood heat!!! The GM Resevoir works great no pissing fluds.

The GM GTO clutch reservoir only holds a few ounces.

Here's a Kawasaki brake reservoir I used to replace my GTO one with. I forget the exact specs, but holds over twice the volume - so makes bleeding the clutch and going dry less risky. Plus it's a much bigger target to pour fluid into. It has an upper diapram type cap that keeps the fluid from sloshing around and seals perfectly. In my case, I was able to reuse the mounting bracket by flattening one portion out and reverse mounting compared to the origional motorcycle intent - bolted right to the LPE relocated Maggie reservoir and just barely cleared the hood. My lastest and best EDPM hose IMO, came from a BMW dealership - has a black cloth braided cover also.

I had done numerous full internet and ebay searches, checked all the Wilwood options, and went to every motorcycle shop I could find to look on bikes to find it. The hard part was most places don't give volume specs, side discharge is a must to keep from getting air trapped in the hose, and being able to see through IMO is the smartest way to go. You don't want to be opening the reservoir, just to check levels and color (just contaminates it quicker).

Only downside is it cost about 5x more. GTO is around $20ish range, this was just under $100 with tax -but might be closer to $90, since a few hardware pieces weren't used and could be deleted. Plus, maybe it can be ordered on the internet for cheaper? I know this ends up being a tease - but I will find the reciept and part #s to post when I get back in town and have time. The part is used on numerous Kawasaki model/years and definitely will not leak..... even has a keeper bracket so cap couldn't possibly vibrate loose (overkill a motorcycle probably needs).

Kawasaki Brake Reservoir parts

Here's all the parts I ordered for just under $100 w/tax from my local Kawasaki dealer. I did a quick internet search and even with shipping from 2 different vendors, parts were much cheaper totaling about $80. (surprise...duh) All the parts except the bracket which is year specific (Kawasaki-zx1000GBF 2011 Ninja 1000), I found on one site: (might try calling powersportsplus re bracket - or search other sites)
http://www.powersportsplus.com with part # drilldown pretty easy (use part # only on top of page & hit enter when part matches)

I ended up flattening out one part of the bracket for my mounting, I figured if nothing else, I could use it for a template. It has a small hole, that a nipple on the reservior inserts into to keep proper position.

Bracket,Reservoir Tan (THIS IS THE ONLY PART I COULDN'T LOCATE ON Powersportsplus)
Part Number: 11056-0263
http://www.ereplacementparts.com/kaw...25_178856.html

The following parts fit Numerous years and models -

Kawasaki 43078-1099 RESERVOIR
Part# 43078-1099

Kawasaki 43026-1051 CAP-BRAKE
Part# 43026-1051

Kawasaki 43028-1057 DIAPHRAGM
Part# 43028-1057

Kawasaki 43027-1051 PLATE-DIAPHRAGM (mounts between cap & diaphragm)
Part# 43027-1051

Kawasaki 92170-1090 CLAMP (holds cap from loosening)
Part# 92170-1090

Kawasaki 92009-1570 SCREW (for clamp)
Part# 92009-1570


The 4 following items I didn't use, since I reverse mounted on bracket, but might come in real handy if mounted as intended. I used stainless steel 1/4" x 20 threads per inch hardware for reservoir to bracket hardware to reverse mount. (I didn't utilize the larger hole in bracket for grommet.... the dampener)

Kawasaki 92075-161 DAMPER RUBBER,BATTERY (not sure why it says battery)
Part# 92075-161

Kawasaki 92152-0017 COLLAR
Part# 92152-0017

Kawasaki 92210-0007 NUT,FLANGED,5MM
Part# 92210-0007
(nut is black & didn't come with the 5mm bolt that inserts through the dampener mount - could have been part of motorcycle )

Kawasaki 92153-0578 BOLT,6X8 (allen head... probably went into motorcycle)
Part# 92153-0578

Dimensions of reservoir not including the bracket are:

2 7/8" total hieght assembled
2 1/2" bottom of bowl to top of cap
2 1/4" cap diameter

I found my latest EDPM brake hose with the braided cloth exterior at a BMW car dealership (don't have part #)

GTO one holds roughly 1 1/8 ounces ~ 30 ml

Kawasaki holds roughly 2 1/5 ounces ~ 70 ml

I can get about 5 pumps onthe Kawasaki one when bleeding before it goes dry.

Bigger is better and less of a PITA when bleeding, plus dilutes the brake dust - so longer between bleeds.

If anyone's interested, I have the GTO reservoir and the kit with the hose and caps for sale.
I bought all the parts from the guys on this thread but now I won't be installing them.

The last 4 pics are the parts I didn't use, but easily could have gone the other way. All depends on where you're installing it - bracket might just be used for a template to make your own. 1st pic was on the motorcycle.

I'm sure this has been asked before, but would this cap work for plugging the brake reservoir?

RxDoc reading through the thread the material the plug is made from sounds like a winner for your end cap. It is the EPDM material that is essential so that the cap doesnt disintegrate from the interaction with the brake fluid.

Bumping this to the top once again for ZL1 owners; good idea or no?

Looking on Ebay, there are a lot of types to choose from, not just the GTO
