Need some input from ya'll. I've been kicking some ideas around latley. There's some parts I'd like to make in limitied quantities and put out for sale. one of wich is Billet Brake fluid resiviors. These designs would actually attach directly to the master cylinders and do away with the rubber hose. I plan on offering them in either black or polished. I'm looking to offer them at a price between $65-75 usd.

Here are a couple of examples I'm working on. These are unfinised designs, but give an idea...

Basicly, I'm gauging interest. So post up and let me know what you think. Thanks.

How would they attach? Horizontally? I think fighters need some options for front resevoirs that are more subtle when all you've got up front is some bars.

i too am interested. i put a very small brembo unit on my bars with a short rubber hose. nice and clean but not as trick. and bought a billet one that bolts right to the rear master with a lid and gasket for $100 anodized black. you may not want to hear this but you could charge more for them. i know, i know, shut up. :stupid: if you could make them up for a few different standard bikes. postem on the "real" custom sites (you know the slammed and lowered bikes) or hook up with mccoy's or tocc they would probably buy that shit in trailier loads. (that is how gregg from greggs customs started. he made a few signals for his R1 and marketed them to McCoys) those trinkets are really ate up on them bikes especially with chromed and polished finishes. i don't like blingy bikes anyway but it is even worse when they are all plated then you see the stock rubber hosed reservoirs sitting there out of place.

I know, the ones made in Europe are super expensive. All go for well over $100. and you're right, I could charge more, but right off the rip I just want to get some stuff out there. Not looking to make a killing on this just yet.

Healo, they attach in the same fashion as the plastic nipple in the master cylinder does. I am also designing some for the front as well. The ones pictured are rear MC resies.

Right now I'm working on ones that will fit Nissin master cylinders as that is a pretty common unit on many bikes. I belive some of the factory issued brembro units can use these too. ex: Yamaha, Ducati.

The company I'm using has an expected turn around time of 1 month. Idealy, I'd like to make them myself, but untill I can afford my own machine I'm going to out source. I'm not going to start advertising the units for sale untill I have recived all the parts and what not.

I agree with Superbeast but I think you'd be better off at $59.95 at first and then you can always up the price after you get a few out there and people start to give good feedback. I'm interested for both my Blade and Gixxer.

Talked with a machinest budy of mine a couple weeks ago. He said he'd be able to do some low production stuff. Just gota sit down with him and go over some designs and we'll be ready to rock.

after about 15 min of searching i found the one I would want for the rear. Im not sure if most bikes sport the right master or not....Instead of just posting the picture here is the ebay link, ive seen them posted for gixxers and the like from the same company, but im not paying 170 plus shipping...I can deal with 60-70, but for the cost of the aluminum, and labor for someone that has the equipment, 170 plus shipping is outta the question.

Picture if you dont want the ebay link

Endo,

reposted the pics in the first post.

These are just ideas at the moment. They most likley will not reflect the finished product. I'm still playing around with a smaller version that can be made for both front and rear applications.

I also have the money in hand, would really just like something similar to what I posted, I know that make ones like that for the front, and whatever route you choice, whether it be my ideal setup, or something similar post pictures, and let us all know the price. I first posted something about not wanting to wait six months, well its been six months, and I still havnt gotten one, so get 'er done
