Scarab master cylinder fluid resvoir

Can anyone tell me the height of the brake fluid reservoir on a scarab master cylinder for the front brake on a 750S
Even better if someone could tell me where I could get a replacement reservoir from!!
Thanks
Dave

Dave,

The Scarabs were pretty crap (leaked etc) better off replacing with something else ie Brembo and will still look ok

Interestingly if you refurbish a Scarab MC it doesn't leak, are they still crappy?

My 750S America had a Scarab front brake. I owned it from new for four years, covered at least 15K miles, never had a problem with the master cylinder.

Agreed, Scarab was labled early on and it unfortunately stuck which seems to be the knee jerk reaction.
