Brake fluid reservoirs
You may know this already, but just in case:
The reservoir by the right footpeg has two chambers, one for the front circuit, and one for the rear circuit, both feeding the ABS pump. These reservoirs are the ones that drop as the brake pads wear.
The clutch fluid reservoir (on the left handlebar) is checked with the bars turned all the way to the right. As the clutch wears, the fluid level here *rises*. My mechanic fills this one only to the low limit mark when changing out the fluid.
You can use a trash bag to protect everything before opening up the reservoir. Poke a hole through the bag, stick the bar through the hole, then tape the edges of the hole around the bar. Just a thought.
