up immediately.

hose [B] from the master cylinder [C].
When removing the brake hose, temporarily secure the

der [B] as an assembly with the reservoir and brake lever.

Tighten the upper clamp bolt [B] first, and then the lower
clamp bolt [C]. There will be a gap at the lower part of the
clamp after tightening.
