Brake Reservoir

Took the 899 out of storage the other day and noticed that the brake fluid in the front reservoir seemed like it had separated. Bike was kept in a temperature controlled storage unit through the winter and was started/run every other week. thoughts? Cause for concern?

Well, regardless of the storage situation, the common practice is to replace the fluid once a year, at least. I have never seen such a dramatic ‘separation,’ but I’m sure that it’s not good. I think it’s a moisture, brake fluid attracts/holds water.
