Rear reservoir relocation

Hi
After recently getting my Cbr600rr 03 I知 still trying to figure out how to access my rear brake reservoir to bleed and renew fluid!!
Is it possible to actually cut the brake line to the hidden reservoir and remount it just behind/above the heel guard for easier access or is this not possible/safe guys?

I believe the "reservoir delete" is a fairly popular modification, perhaps this could ease your problems? HRC makes some, and aftermarket options are available as well.

Research that one.

If honest I don稚 want to do the delete.Prefer a resi to look at too
Does anyone know what the internal diameter of the brake line that runs to the rear resi on an 03 and maybe I can find an aftermarket resi with the same diameter fitting

Still can't find that sucker!

At this point just remove the tail fairing. You can't miss it with that fairing off. You could relocate the reservoir without too much trouble, or like 498 said you can delete the reservoir entirely and just use a tube as your reservoir. I elected to go that route.

Most people buy the HRC kit or similar. I decided to just use the stock hose, and buy a rubber cork from miners to seal the hose. I'll post a picture later.

If you have any more questions please let me know

Are the HRC kits easy enough to fit,there cheap enough,but where does the actual tube fit on to,is it where the existing brake line fits on to the master cylinder?

Is this the correct kit,if so I値l get one ordered,I want to replace the fluid so will do this once kit fitted and will bleed the system. Anything I need to be careful with or any precaution I need to take?
Thanks Again

get a bit of Tygon tube and a cap and fit it,or buy the HRC reservoir delete kit and fit that to the bike.
Simple to do.

Exclamation

Here's what it looks like when you just cut the existing tube. Exactly the same result as buying the kit/tygon tube. And maybe better because some have reported that the HRC kit sweats fluid.
