Leaking master cylinder
So I put on renthal mediums a few months ago, and rotated the controls forward a little. At the time I also bled the brakes and had to flip the upper banjo back as I'm pretty sure the precious owner flipped it for more clearance with the urban machinery bars on the bike when I got it. The problem is I've noticed the last two weeks or so my brake fluid has been pretty low, like almost emptying the window during braking. Could be that the front end is starting to dive a little more, or could be it was always low and I'm just noticing it now, but I'm almost positive I filled it up last time. I figured I'd take a look today when I was wrenching and sure enough it was about halfway down. So problem one is where the hell is the fluid going? I checked all the joints etc and nothing is jumping out at me. So I threw it on the center stand, put a block under my front wheel to make the master cylinder more level, and filled it up. Now that I've put the cover back on problem number two is the fluid is weeping out the front of the bottom of the cover. Not sure if it's just a little that got smushed out when I put it back on, but I spent a half hour wiping and walking away and wiping again and it keeps coming back... And brake fluid is not fun stuff to be leaking...
So 1 is where could my brake fluid be going, and 2 is the master cylinder cover supposed to be leak proof? Or if it's at an angle during normal riding should I have the level accordingly lower?
