    I kept seeing fluid down on my frame and tracked it down to my break cylinder...looks like it is comming out from around the pressure switch...the two nipple looking things below body under neath the reservoir..

    Are these switchs just screwed in...I dont want to start tighting on something that doesnt turn??

    Grab 'em with some small channel locks and tighten them a little. Or remove and put pugs in. They're just simple pipe threads.

    My brand new master cylinder leaks at where the brake lines go in, that big nut. I thought it was leaking through the pressure switches. Might want to give that a check as well.
