    dual/triple reservoir placement

    I've stumbled across this info before, but can't find it now.

    I plan to mount reservoir similar to the image below.

    How far forward from the front of the foot box can these be mounted before I have interference (with the strut for the hood I believe)?

    I placed the near reservoir about 5" from the front of the foot box, and just barely clear the strut with the far reservoir.

    Do you have a measurement from the foot box to the far reservoir? I have different reservoirs that what I had pictured. Thanks!

    The strut brace is right at about 12" from the front of the foot box at the 3/4 top square tube.

    Perfect - I think this markup is showing what I'm asking for and Papa has provided.

    Make sure that when you mount them that they are higher than the master cylinders. I almost didn’t mount mine high enough.

If I'm going to go through the hassle of doing this, it sure would be nice to back the reservoirs with a nice shiny piece such as the one you show.

    The picture I posted earlier was actually a photo I found when I was trying to figure out how to install mine.

    This is mine.
    I made the backing plates. It's actually a little overkill. One piece of sheetmetal with an angle bent at the top attached under the 3/4" frame tube sandwiched with a second of the same shape attached to the back of the 3/4" frame tube.

    In relation to the frame that the Triple CNC mounts to in the pictures shown, are the top of the caps even with the rail?

    Here's a view of the max measurement from the footbox to the hood support. I lowered the hood and inserted my finger, in-line with the rear of the support mounting bracket. Approx 12 1/2"

    Do you mount the reservoir level with the ground or follow the angle of the frame?
    Thanks again.

    I mounted mine level to the ground. Not sure it makes a difference but i tend to overthink everything.
