Correct angle of brake reservoir?
Compared to my son's VN 500 brake reservoir, which is level when his bike is upright, I noticed that mine is canted slightly upward- maybe 25 degrees? - so that when I check the brake fluid level through the sight glass, it appears low. When I unscrew the reservoir top, it cannot be fully filled because of the angle (the fluid overflows the edge). Is the reservoir supposed to be angled, or should it be level? I also realize that if I level it, it will cause the brake lever to be positioned lower. Thank you in advance!
