Brake reservoir leaking SOS
As some will know I fitted a new brake reservoir top a couple of days ago. It leaks a little on my first outing and I found the two screws were not as tight as they could be... so I gave them a good nip up and thought/hoped all would be well.
Iíve headed out again tonight and Iím relatively far from home... Iíve stopped off some fuel and noticed them at there is still a little liquid just below the top cap. Itís litrelly just a couple of spot but my concern is two fold... one... itís onviously not ideal to be losing brake fluid... two... and probably my main concern is if little drips end up on my painted surfaces, (matte black) that it will destroy it.
So my questions are... a.m. I write in assuming the brake fluid will kill my paint job?
Also... is there a seal or sealant that I should be using? Itís nice and tight now so canít quite understand where Iím going wrong.
Any advice or words of comfort prior to me heading home would be welcomed?
