Those aftermarket ones on Amazon for $20 have a flatter profile.
MAKE SURE YOU GET THE BIG ONES!!!
The small $16 one has a tiny resovoir and doesn't last long on anything bigger than a 250.
So look at the measurements before purchasing.

That's not terrible. As long as you can fill up the reserve and then cap it off it will work. If you have too get a helper. pull the reserve off the bike, fill up, put the cap back on, reinstall. You'll be fine.

Looks wise I don't like what you have going on there. I would find a flatter for your bars.

It seems like the brake lever is very low.
Can you reach it in an emergency without twisting your hand a lot?

Thanks for the advice i may look for some new flatter ones, but will use these for the time.

On my bike I have too turn to the left to check the brake fluid yours needs to steer right by the looks of it.
Since my bike is a 1999 750 ACE take a look at one of those to see if it will get it flatter for you.

The 750 Spirit brake master sits pretty much level since they were sold with drag style bars from factory, may be your best bet.
