I do use the reservoir and it is absolutely vunderbar. If you want, you can
fill the reservoir (after evacuating the old super nasty crap from the MC)
with a store brand fluid and flush until the system is cleaner than
Liberace's smile and then switch to that expensive Ford Blue (after
evacuating the MC reservoir again with the Griot's Garage ONE MAN hydraulic
bleeding kit with a two.something gallon storage capacity). I find it
somewhat amusing that the relatively expensive initial cost scares so many
otherwise knowledgeable people who keep on expending precious and
irreplaceable parts of their live trying to "make do". 8)
And are these people who would blow $30 on a new CD and a fast food supper?
Alas, probably so.
