Here's the trick, unbolt the reservoir from its bracket and wrap it out and around the subframe and tape it down to the outside of the bike using duct tape temporarily. Perform your bleeding operation without removing anything else and then relocate the reservoir back to original position when you are done. Done this twice so far and rear brake works beautifully, better than when they delivered the bike.

Not the same as on your bike, you can't reach the reservoir at all without taking the tank off on our bikes.

Here's one for you......I have to remove the front bumper to replace the left side low beam headlight bulb on my car!! Others are simple to get to, but not that one.
I couldn't believe it at first, but that is the easiest way to get to it.........
In comparison, accessing your brake reservoir is a piece of cake.
