    Filling AK Brake Resevoir

    Anyone got any tips or tricks to filling the AK bake reservoir?
    I was going to use a funnel with a long flexi neck but even that looks like t might be quite tricky.
    I could do with something idiot proof....

    Yes it is a sod to top up that reservoir. I use a plastic bottle with an angled tube like this .

    I suck some into a soft plastic tube and hold a finger over the upper end while placing the lower end in the reservoir, then let go..Like a bendy pipette.

    Cheers Chaps, I'm liking the look of the bottle with bendy tube.. especially as I have the whole system to fill rather than a top up...

    Mine isn’t an AK, but I use a 100ml capacity syringe and some vacuum tube. Draw the fluid into the syringe, drop the tube in the reservoir and pump it in, works very well. It’s also useful when it comes to emptying the reservoir.
