Hi

Can anyone please confirm that the most accurate way to check the level of the front brake reservoir is to sit on the bike with it level and move the handle bars to the full left lock position?

When Im riding the level is lower than the lower mark in the sight glass, but I need the correct procedure for checking the quantity and it is not written sufficiently in the manual.

Thanks in advance

The main thing is to have enough in there so that it never "sucks air" when you pull the handle. Air in the lines makes for havoc.

You are right. If you turn the bars full lock to the left it levels out the master cylinder.
