Custom Brake/Clutch fluid reservoir

Hello all for the 2010 k1300GT can i put an after-market brake/cluch fluid reservoir? i talked to my dealer and they said it's difficult but not impossible.

Has anyone done this upgrade?

Re: Custom Brake/Clutch fluid reservoir

The brakes use any good DOT 4 fluid (Valvoline synthetic is my fav) but the clutch is mineral oil do not use DOT 4 brake fluid or you will trash the system $$$$$$$. Find a good mineral oil designed for bikes.
