Brake Reservoir hitting Windscreen

I had this problem while building the 1199 track bike, and now that Iím transitioning the 899 to a track-only bike Iíve got the same issue.

My brake reservoir hits the windscreen and nose fairing really badly. Does anyone else have this problem and how have you dealt with it? Iíve designed and 3D printed a ďlow profileĒ brake reservoir bracket. It helped, but it didnít eliminate it.

Not sure how the mounting is on the 899 but on the 1199, you can tilt it forward or backward a bit until you get clearance. I would think it would be the same on the 899 but could be wrong.

This. Itís just a thin metal bracket and easy enough to bend. Just make sure to not bend it to the extreme so that the hose doesnít get pulled off/kinked and itíll be fine.
