Inspect your brake reservoir hose clamp

While riding yesterday i noticed a thin stripe of dirt on the right upside of my steering damper.
After further inspection i noticed the hoseclamp underneath the brakefluid-reservoir was pointing downwards, slightly touching the steering damper when putting the steer in maximum angle.
This was causing the hose to let go a little bit of oil everytime the clamp touches the damper, the clamp was oily and that caused the dirt on the damper.
Simple solution, just turn the clamp so it faces forward instead of downward.
Don't want to know what could have happened when i didn't notice this and after some time the hose would come off and the reservoir would drain
So better check this clamp, small thing, with a simple solution
Thanks from ddd269
