885 Brake Resovoir

Recommended Posts

The resovoir will not keep oil in it .When we pulled it off a couple of the metal tubes were sticking out of the resovoir including the drain which i understand has to be in to keep oil level to a point to feed brake cylinders .Question is what keeps them up in the plastic resovoir ?A slight shake and they come right back down ?Thank You !!

They were just a press fit -- the aluminum tube has shrank or the plastic has swelled

Use a long taper punch and enlarge the tube some will help

If the reservoir is going dry -- then the brake piston seals are leaking

Also be sure the fill tube orifice is not plugged
