Now what do I do??????

Postby rdhrcwi1 » Sat Jun 18, 2016 2:39 pm



After changing brake pads on my 1984 Aspencade, I checked the brake fluid. Somehow while doing this, I poked a small hole in the viewing window of the fluid resevouir. What are my options????

Thanks for your help.

What ever you do,it won't be usable today.
I have removed one and JB welded a piece of glass in its place.Hobby store or WM glass beads.Not perfect and eventually it leaked but not before I got replacement units..The original is removed and a whole new one is pressed in...
Check a parts supplier or Ebay....Motorcycle Brake Master Cylinder Reservoir Sight Glass

A company on eBay sells two versions for the 1500.
This one is glass for $15 and this one is plastic for $12.
