The KTM Superduke 990 is know for having the rear brake reservoir cap come loose and disappear while riding. This can cause the unexpected loss of the rear brake due to brake fluid disappearing as well as the cap. This retainer was designed as a means of locking the brake reservoir cap in place and indexing it to the frame. This retainer is 3D printed and snaps into place and can be removed to service the brake fluid.

I included an "R" version that is exactly the same, but it has the "R" logo on top for extra pzazz if anyone wants it instead of the non logo version.

I tried to print in ABS and had some pretty bad curling issues so I re-mixed it a little.

Thanks for making the model tho :)

Excited to hear someone found this part useful. I was able to make mine in abs with the top facing up, without any warping. Good that you were able to get it to work with some extra modification. Thanks for letting me know...and enjoy not having to worry about losing your rear brake on a ride like I did.

So you printed with a raft and lots of support from underneath?

It has a very small contact patch in that orientation and with the two shorter legs I thought it would fail and need a lot of support.

Maybe I'll give it a go.

Yes, the support was enough to keep it attached to the bed, also without warping on my Afinia based platform. Also, you can try printing the second version I uploaded with the "R" logo, just for fun.
