    Break/Clutch Fluid Reservoir

    Hi.
    I have an Atom 2 and the Break/Clutch Fluid Reservoir is leaking (very slow drip). I already bought the forum suggested 3 division reservoir and will install when the weather improves.

    To avoid pulling off my dash,I was curious if anyone has ever used/tried the washer fluid reservoir with some splitters to hold the Break/Clutch Fluid. It's in the perfect spot in the dash, easy to access and of sufficient volume (I think). Mine is dry and has never been used for washer fluid.

    Thanks!!!

    The washer reservoir incorporates the washer motor pump into the reservoir,so I don't see how you could eliminate it (and the gaping hole) to use the reservoir as a brake fluid holder. I rigged up my 3 chamber to mount directly under the washer bottle opening,and connected the 3 chambers so they all fill off one chamber. They really don't have to all be separated..it's all the same fluid.

    I did the same modification based on your suggestions from a previous thread. Plan on putting it the same place, loved that idea.

    Any tricks or issues I need to know about before I start doing the project?

    Nope,pretty straightforward. Try not to allow the master cylinder feed tubes to drain out,and you won't even have to bleed anything. (unless you would like to flush the system out anyway,..which is a good idea every few years)
