  1. Dumb question

    I didn't over fill I topped it off right to the "UPPER" line, but once the diaphragm was inserted it displaced the fluid above the "UPPER" line. A coworker told me this is normal and is to prevent the entrance of air into the master cylinder, but I would still like a second opinion. I fully bled the brakes twice so there is no air in the system, and as I said before the brakes function flawlessly just looking at the reservoir, bugs me.
  2. Dumb question

    So I recently flushed my brakes. I topped the level off and when I reinserted the diaphragm i noticed that this put the level above the upper limit line. Is this normal? I have put a few hundred miles on the bike since and just was wondering there is no dragging or anything odd. First post in awhile been a little busy's all.
  3. IXS jackets and five gloves

    no I saw the gear in a shop, the five gloves at cycle gear, and the IXS jacket at a dealership.
  4. IXS jackets and five gloves

    I have been shopping around for a leather jacket and some gauntlets. I have been looking at Joe rocket, alpinestars, and Dainese as well as Frank thomas. I came across a company called IXS and FIVE. They make jackets and gloves largely in Europe. I am wondering if any of you have heard of them or own anything by them. They have a pretty nice jacket for right around 300 but I don't want to buy from some no name company.
