Brake Fluid: Motul RBF600, can't beat the value (price for performance)
Reservoir - depends on what you're after, simplicity = Brembo reservoirs, bling = Evotech reservoirs; they will accommodate both 6mm tubing for a Brembo M/C for example, or the OEM setup which comes at 8mm.
Gas caps - I find the Lightechs to be the sexiest but are quite expensive compared to the competition. Vortex is very well priced but the anodizing won't last for long, the black starts to purple. I think I'm going to go for TWM, the perfect balance.

The Italian flag is a sticker, and comes right off.

You can get them in various colors (for the handles), unlike others on the market the anodizing will not fade on TWM fuel caps.

I have to vote for Driven for the gas cap. They are flawless.

I have Rizoma brake fluid reservoirs. If I could do it all over again, I'd probably go with the simplicity of Brembo reservoirs.

That Driven Halo gas cap is extremely nice!

Unfortunately around here, we can't have nice things. People will pour sugar and other crap into a bike's tank for their own amusement, just to piss someone off.

Yep. That's the Driven Halo.

The Rizoma reservoirs are just fine. Just want something simple for reservoirs.

Your pics aren't showing.

OP, the Lightech in your first post isn't the one I'm referring to this one is:
