    leaking resevoir on my martas

    , lost all braking control today (front brake) on my marta front brake, bled the brake, works great but noticed that the top cap of the resevior with the 2 TORX6 bolts has a leaking bolt, i flipped it around and the same bolt kept leaking a small amount of mineral oil everytime a really cranked on the brake lever. any suggestions for a quick fix and where i could get a new top cap for the resevoir, hope i explained my problem well.

    ...replacement parts if needed. Are you sure the bolts are torqued properly though?

    There is a 5 year leakproof warranty so no worries... just have your LBS or call them yourself, all will be good.
