Clutch Fluid Reservoir...Replacements?

The clutch fluid reservoir on my K6 is looking a bit hazed and crystallized from years of sitting with mild UV exposure.

I see that there is a Honda part (22887-MBB-006) that allegedly replaces the Suzuki piece perfectly.

Are there any other solutions out there?

Thanks!

I recently replaced mine. While you are there, you may look into replacing the seal o rings underneath the reservoir. I replaced them with new ones from a local store. Note, they need to be of a special type (EPDM) to keep up with brake fluid.

I appreciate that. I thought I'd reuse the seals, but if the other parts are showing age, I suppose those could too. Cheap insurance

Only replace with known compatible o-ring type. If in doubt order the factory ones.

Forgive my newb-ness...but does the reservoir just "pull" out? I need to replace mine as well, and I was worried I had to replace the whole assembly.

A light tap with a heavy hammer will remove it......it will also help your tongue wrap itself around some exotic words.....


Once the little screw is out, it be a wriggle and pull job to pluck it out, will feel a little like its gonna break something ....
When putting it back together, put a thin smear of brake fluid on the o-ring to lubricate it
when pushing it back into place......

I might no' be a smart man Jenny....but i can pain' ma copper colored bike a dif'ren color.....

Good to know!

Haven't got around to changing mine yet.

Has anyone had the stock unit fall apart after age and sun exposure? Kinda wondering how superficial (or not) the "damage" is...

Once they have aged so much that they have become "chalky" looking, to the point were you can even scratch it with a fingernail.....then the biggest risk is from impact, or, even over tightening the cap may even facture it.....

But it has to be pretty bad..... largely they just look pretty shite.....

If the fingernail test leaves significant amounts of plastic under the nail it is probably time to get concerned. My engine coolant reservoir tank was like that when I bought the bike and within just a few weeks the coolant was seeping out everywhere like it was coming through a fine mesh.

I have replaced 2 coolant tanks over the life of my bike.... the coolant does effect them slightly, but ANY direct sunlight seems to eat them pretty quick....
