Talking Gday from Sydney

Gents,

Bought myself a completely stock 2007 orangey colored Honda 919 (or Hornet). In the process of put on some bits and pieces, most recent mod is a pair of slip on Yoshi TRS tri oval exhaust which were pretty cool.

Have a whole bunch of other things I'm going to do to it so I'll post pics soon as I can, look forward to chatting.

Aftermarket Brake Fluid Tank for 919??

Ladies and Gents

Was wondering if anyone could recommend an aftermarket brake fluid res to replace the stock black box

You'd need to replace the perch for the brake lever, and the master cylinder to boot.

I put a GSXR master cylinder on mine, matched to RC51 calipers. I have an ugly res on there right now, but this Rizoma one has caught my eye a time or two:

Thanks for the heads up about the perch and master cylinder, I have been looking at the Rizoma REs myself but have heard they have a tendancy to leak.

Me want. I'll trade engines. I'll do all the labor, you just need to ferry it over the ocean.

Also, welcome!
