So my front stock brake reservoir on my 06 R6 exploded during my crash last week... any recommendations on a reasonably priced aftermarket front brake reservoir?

I like the top-screw-in brembo style, but open to others. Not sure if any vendors on here offer any

In for curiosity. Is there any performance benefit with going with an aftermarket reservoir or is it mostly a cosmetic thing?

Ya'll can let me know if you want me to break you off on an Evotech one. They look gorgeous and they are MUCH more rugged and durable than the OEM ones.

They crash much better than OEM. :fact I know if you have an RCS, there's a nice mount for it that's also metal and anodized and matching.

Don't be fooled by the knock offs out there on ebay and shit either. Evotech has a 5 year antifade warranty on their anodizing. Good luck finding that guarantee or quality in another product. The Rizoma ones are great too, but the pricing on evotech is much easier on the wallet too.

Durable is my main concern... not exploding on impact would have saved bleeding time lol, but friend was nice enough to let me borrow a brembo one for another bike (made it fit, luckily).

friend of mine has a brembo cup with the bracket. Probably cost $50 or so.
It did come with nice clamps and hose to attach to the RCS unit he has.

I have one of the older style ABM ones on my GSXR and the Evotech on my R6. I like the Evotech one better. Also, it comes with two different size nipples for the hose, so you know it will work with your master cylinder.

Damn, those do look nice. I can also see you wouldn't have to worry about UV either. What kind of cash do these run? I'm planning to replace my lines over the off season.

But do they come in pink?
:fact

This is extremely important!

Hmmm... I'm assuming the mount is universal. Looks like I'm also going to swap the rear brake so I get a GP tube-only.
