Adjusting brake reservoir for new bars

Hi everyone, long time reader, first time poster.

I've recently put a new set of lsl street bars onto my scrambler..The thing is, the metal bit that comes out of the front break reservoir is now pushed right up against my speedo. It'll be ok, but what I'm wondering is if I undo that little nut on the end can I spin it down and under the speedo without leaking brake fluid all over my bike?

If you look at the picture with the yellow arrow on and have a closer look at your bike you'll see what I mean. Anyone able to offer any advice?

Yes, if you undo that nut (It's actually called a banjo bolt) then brake fluid will come out. And brake fluid is really corrosive on paint, if you ever spill any wash it off with water immediately.

Rerouting the brake line isn't the easiest thing in the world. It needs to go down near the steering head stem, so it doesn't loosen or tighten as you twist the bars. That's what that big loop helps with, it will change shape very slightly as you move the bars.

To change this you will need to have a shorter line fabricated then figure out how and where to bend and route it.

I had a similar thought, but it all got too hard.
