    I haven't really posted here much, but I did want to make you aware (if not already) about the aftermarket brake and clutch master cylinder caps on eBay. I bought a pair of the black with silver "etched" Vmax on them about a year back. They are not powder coated, they are painted or covered in something that the brake fluid will eat in to. You can't clean them up afterwards either. I found a nice set of used factory ones I've ordered. I haven't seen the polished aluminum ones, so I don't know about them. Just beware.

    Oops. Looking at the picture, I need to go re-route the fluid line.

    Yep, that sucks. I have polished ones (not chrome, but I also have those as well). I chose to run the polished because if they get anything on them, I can just polish it off.
