Re: brake fluid leak between reservoir/MC

Hi Murari,

A year ago, my 5kcst had the same problem as you menthion.  The 
reservoir plug/seal that you questioned about is exist and it's
replaceable, but I don't have the procedure for replaceing this
plug/seal since this  thing  was replace by my mechanic. (By my 
guess, I think the reservoir and the plug can just pull out form
the MC, but I'm not sure if the air can get into the MC or not.)  

BTW, the price for this tiny thing is $6 each. Hope you can fix the leaks
as soon as posssible. :->
