Was cleaning my bike yesterday and unhappily noticed that my exghaust pipe had partially melted my rear brake fluid resevoir. Not to the point that it is leaking but it still doesn't look good. I took a few falls this weekend and assume that one of them pushed the resevoir against the pipe (downside of using the carbon fiber frame guards I guess). I have the WB e-series pipe will probably replace the resevoir to be safe. Anyone have any ideas of how to widen the space between the resevoir and pipe. I know that I'll put the exghaust tape on the pipe to shield some heat but would appreciate any other advice. Thx!

Stroker makes aluminum rear brake fluid reservoir I think its $45 ..... it could be less than the stock Yamaha plastic one. Here is a link http://stroker.fusio...n/questions.cfm

Their server was down when I checked earlier but it was up last nite.
Good Luck

When you mount the Rear brake reservoir put a couple of washers between the frame mounting tab and the reservoir flange this will space the reservoir out away from the exhaust and buy a little clearence, which may be enough.
