Clutch fluid leaking from resivior

I took a long ride and after a couple hours of riding I noticed my resivior was empty. At this time there was no sign of a leak. Replaced fluid and checked the seal, now it seems to leak out of the cap only under hard acceleration. Has anyone had this issue?

If there was no sign of leak before I would guess you over filled it.
Maybe the seal is bad?
Something cracked?
Did you pull sprocket cover to see if any fluid my the slave cylinder?

did you check for cracks or a bad seal on the reservoir?

I didn't pull the sprocket cover but there were no signs of fluid anywhere when it was empty. Now when I do a hard pull it leaks out of the resivior

Out the cap? From the line?

Mine did the same on the 10RR until i took fluid out to lower the level. It was a bit high i think.

My guess it was creating a little vacuum to suck it out.
The res is that two bolt brembo cap system.

Not too keen on that thing.
Now im always watching it.
