    A Motorcycle's Dashboard

    This is a stupid question, but what are those little canisters that can be found on some bike's dashes?

    Wow, that's a really small picture.

    I would guess that they're related to the brakes.

    wow.....

    the right one is the front brake fluid reservoir similar to that on a car and the left one is for the clutch.

    I think those containers contains the brake fluid and other essential thinks needed for the bike to run...
    Everything ends at 666...

    Not if you don't ride and have never really closely looked at a bike before.

    The brake reservoir (on the right) isn't always that shape, some have a little metal cube instead, also not all bikes have hydraulic clutches, they have cable clutches instead, so they won't have the reservoir on the right.

    Thanks, I thought one might be for the brakes but I woulda never thought the other was for clutch fliud.
