Rear Brake fluid leak after heli bars

I installed the Heli-Bars the other day....front brake extension all done...everything good. Today I am out on the road and I am leakinf from arou d rear brakes. Cant tell exactly where. Anyone run into this? I do feel things are tight to the left handlebars...but I am pretty sure I loosened everything I was supposed to.

This is one of the reasons mechanics have to charge so much. Do one thing for customer who then complains something totally unrelated broke, “but was perfectly fine before!”

If brake fluid is leaking then you have to find where before it can be fixed.

Tight to the left? The clutch side? The clutch hydraulic line did not need to be loosened or anything to install my Helibar Bridge. Is possible that you kinked or broke the clutch hydraulic hose.

I'm confused, nothing new there, but what does a leak near the rear brake have to do with a HeliBar installation?

Exactly. I have installed helis non my last two fjr’s No leaks. And no way the rear would have been affected.

Things are tight to the left handlebars.

If you are saying the the clutch side does not rotate all the way to the right because the clutch line tightens up, there is a small screw and plastic tab that keeps the clutch line in place somewhere between the clutch master cylinder and the slave cylinder. If you take that off and do a little work, pulling/pushing the clutch line forward, you can gain a little extra clutch line, in front of the tank, and relieve that small "tightness" when turning the bar all the way to the right.

If that's not what you were talking about, sorry.
