    Default Boom Trike Brakes

    I moved to Maryland and during the mandatory safety inspection, my 2002 Boom trike faiked due to the front brakes not applying enough pressure to the rotor.

    Supposedly I just need to bleed the brakes and add fluid.

    Does anyone know where the Brake Reservoir is located? I have lifted the frame but don't see it and feel I just missing it.

    Any ideas?

    The only Boom Trike I have looked at had the brake fluid reservoir sitting on top of the brake master cylinder, and that assembly was located beside the battery and just forward of the fuel tank (with body raised).

    My reservoir is under the false fuel tank which is held on with 4x6mm cap head bolts
