Clutch Reservoir Leak

Put a RAM mount on the clutch and brake reservoirs and the clutch side has a small leak, more like a dribble. I took the cap off and cleaned the cap, plastic spacer and rubber seal hoping that would solve the problem but it didn't. I took the RAM mount off and used the stock bolts with just the cap and it is still seeping, any ideas?

Sounds like you may have disturbed the "O" ring and may need to replace it. A warped cap can make the plastic cover leak also. Did you over tighten the RAM screws?

I pulled it apart again and wiped each piece including the reservoir and it seems to be holding now. I don't think I over-tightened them, but anything is possible.
