Did anyone else have the No-Hose Reservoir leak after installation? Thought maybe I over filled it at first. After I installed the reservoir, I noticed spray of brake fluid on the engine. Which way should the groove on the lid face, forward or towards the rear? I added a little silicone around the edge of the lid and left the vent groove open. At first I thought it was leaking at the master cylinder but after I added the silicone, it seems to have stopped. I'll have to get a good ride tonight and see if it leaks again

My grove is facing rear. Came that way.

I found that if you fill it too full the rubber mat will not seat and could become pinched between the lid and the rim. Plus, like anything with close specs you want to ensure you tighten the lid screws equally.

Mine has not leaked a drop. I have over 3,000 miles on it.
