rear brake? what rear brake?

well, i finally got off my lazy ass and searched for the reason why my rear brake no workie workie. well, i thought i blew the rubber hose from the master cylinder to the reservoir. well, that's not it. i felt around the bottom of the res and found a hole. looks like there was a plug in it. i'm going to take it apart tonight or tomorrow, but has anyone ever had this happen to them? anyone know how much a new res would cost? if it's expensive, i'm just going to fill the hole with resin or something.

good write up! i don't think i'm going to relocate tho. i don't use the brake when riding hard, but it's nice to have in the city.

I read that article a while back before I got my Senna, now that I had had the Senna for 14 months and with a couple of melted credit cards from storing my wallet under the seat, I am not so sure it is the best place for the reservoir?

lol, very true. the plastic bag that holds all my insurance stuff is kinda melted as well. i may try to fabricate a vent tube for the res. something that vents air from the opening in the bottom of the belly pan. hopefully it won't be too ghetto.

motowheels.com has a carbon heat shield for the rear brake resevior. not sure how good it would work..... bleeding the rear brake does pretty good, if done right.
