Anybody fitted aftermarket 'bling' billet covers to their clutch or front brake fluid reservoirs ?.
I'm not going all ghetto - the originals are corroding badly, with some evil-looking crystal stuff inside. Probably due to previous owners overfilling the fluid....
I'd prefer anodized or equivalent, as the originals are pretty crappy painted metal.

I can find lots of round, or Ducati-sized rectangular ones, online but none that fits. Surely we have generic Brembo parts, not something specifically Guzzi ??

I fix those by spraying epoxy primer and let it tack off 15 minutes before spraying semi glass black.
Of course, I have access to compressed air and spray guns but quality rattle cans will get the job done.

I am lazy... I took to mine with a little copper wire brush to remove all the paint and powder, then went at it with AutoSol Metal polish. Comes up a treat!
That was about three months ago, and still lookin good!

Beetle Tech is better.
Coupla Brembo RCS master cylinders and some remote resevoirs, if you want to go blingy Rizoma have a good range.

Which ones from Rizoma would fit? Maybe something for Ducati?
