Front Master Cyl

Going to change the fluid in my brakes. Working on a 2011 R1200GS.
Cant seem to get the lid of the front master cylinder. Does is screw on or snap on. I hate to break it. It will not budge.

There are two tabs that need to be depressed to allow you to remove the top. Best and cheap method is to take a string and wrap it tight under the black lid compressing the tabs, then unscrew the top. The BMW method it to either take to them or buy a tool, nonsense. Hope the helps.

Yep...That is a big help. BMW couldn't make it easy. If I took it to the dealer for everything I would never have any money to ride the thing...
