Remote reservoirs for clutch and brake Empty

I'm getting my head around converting to radial master cylinders for the front brake and clutch

I made a carbon fibre screen for my GRiSO and can see no reason why I can't fit two black
aluminium reservoirs behind the screen with braided lines to the master cylinders.
I don't like the plastic ones on the bars and this seems a way to overcome that.
Any reason why not ?

AFAIK no reason as long as the height is above the lever, no kinks or issues with routing the pipe.

I fitted a GSXR Radial Brake M/C on my Stelvio, works very well, although I did switch to the Brembo Monobloc M4 Calipers at the same time, so part of the (huge) improvement may be down to them.

Also fitted a cheap (like less than a replacement Lever cheap) Radial Clutch M/C.
Needed some work before use, insides were dirty, even though it was brand new.
Worked OK-ish for a while, but had a few issues with it, so switched back to the original for my ride down to Lisbon and back last Month.

I think if I could find a replacement Seal for it, it would be OK.

The sticky-uppy plastic ones also cause turbulence. I hate turbulence. I spent big on Motocorse reservoirs.

I do like the Jota bars as well - a real cafe-monster look.

Radial cylinders are on my next year list - which make did you use and what sizes?

Me? Brembo. RCS-19 for brakes, and RCS-16 for clutch.

Both those are larger pistons than the original - how did that affect the feel of the controls?

Brakes have more feel. Clutch pull reduced by 33%.

I would think proper plunger rod adjustment would more critical But, I think I'd like to try it.

Thanks - either i don't understand the maths or the pivot & push arrangement must be much more efficient
