Default Cheap Mod

Did not like the looks of the rear brake reservoir. Have not found anything that I liked to cover up the yellow plastic reservoir. Out painting some other things flat black and had the lid for the paint can in my hand. slid it over and it fit. Notched out for the hose and a dab of silicone and looks good for a temporary mod.

I have replaced the windshield, made the block out plate for the rear cylinder, clutch cover, plate frame, heal shifter and added my GPS.

I would just paint the reservoir with plastidip paint. Good idea though.

The XC reservoir sure is an eyesore how it just sticks out there. This is a great idea whether temporary or permanent and it sure looks better than stock.
