I bought a used 03 LT in May and about every 900 miles I have to add brake fluid to the front rear reservoir because I get the alternate light flashing on the dash. I have checked from the brake pedal to the brake master unit back to the rear caliper and have not found any sign of a brake fluid leak.
Any suggestions on where to check next and what part of the brake system does this reservoir serve?
Thanks

My understanding the fluid level is very touchy. I think it is just your break pads wearing which is causing the fluid to go down.

Also perhaps every 900 miles you are not fully topping off the cylinder?
Just my $.02

Brake fluid leak

Mike, I do top it off each time that I have added fluid. I have not checked the brake pads yet so I hope it is just the pads wearing in. The bike has 52,000 miles.
Thanks
Bill
