My Brembo master cylinder reservoir bumped into the fairing-stay. So I carefully bent the reservoir bracket. No problem, but that in-turn put a crimp in the reservoir hose, so I replaced the hose with a tiny bit longer tube and elbow joint. Now it leaks, but not where you'd think; the DOT4 seeps through the wall of the hose, slowly, but eventually enough that it will spatter around the cockpit of the bike and ruin whatever surface it lands on. I've gone through three different kinds of hose and this is proving to be an annoying problem. The current piece of hose I'm using is rated for fuel systems, purchased at Cycle Gear. I've tried vinyl tubing and surgical tubing, both leak. Does anyone have ideas what to use?
