    Default Re: Brake fluid reservoir

    Thanks tolsen, that's helpful. I was hoping it would be possible to remove the hoses from the barbs, and thereby keep the hoses full. I have ordered a used reservoir from eBay.

    The existing reservoir is cracked along the top edge. I'm not sure how much fluid would actually leak but it doesn't seem safe, and it prevents me pressurising the reservoir the bleed the brakes using the Easibleed device.

    It's 'just possible' that the crack 'might' have been caused by 'somebody' forgetting to reduce the pressure in the tyre before attaching it to the Easibleed ...

    To play it safe, I reduce tyre pressure slightly below 1 bar when using easy bleed. So far Ive suffered no blown fluid reservoirs.

    Just found a suitable tool on eBay that might do the job provided pipe is drained of brake fluid in way of barb.

    Of course pipe must be heated or it will never come off.

    Thanks. I found that myself and have just ordered one. Looks a useful tool to have, and you can never have too many.
