front brake
« on: February 04, 2019, 03:44:03 PM »
Hi Guys I've owned my 2013 street triple for a few years now, as the weather isn't great I thought I would give my brakes a good clean up and new fluid, the clean up went ok, however trying to take the master cylinder reservoir cap off the 1 screw rounded off :  :430: so looks like a new reservoir has to be bought

I have found a new reservoir on eBay which is in excellent condition but its from a 2011 model street triple ,my question guys is will this fit my bike, I know triumph updated the model in 2013
but I don't know if the brake reservoir is interchangeable between models

any information will be a great help

Drill the head off the knackered fastener, lift off cap, and remove the remainder of the fastener with Mole grips.

And buy a JIS screwdriver (Japanese industry std, like a philips but not intended to root screws).  They work well on European stuff too, that said brake components are Japanese. .

I bought some hex head counter sunk screws to replace mine when I next open it up (my CRF 230 that is)  :028:

Hex heads are the biz. . . Until they get real small and a hex looks like a circle.

This is what I did then I replaced the screws with Alan head ones instead.

When they get that small use TORX instead  :002:

I was about to say that! Torx for small diameter stuff. Lots of contact area
