The brake fluid reservoir has cracked and broken on top and a small piece of plastic has fallen inside. Does this opaque white plastic cover have to be air tight for the brakes to work correctly? The fluid level in this reservoir is fine and brakes work o.K. But I'm worried about the long term effects if any. The rubber fill cap is o.K. I am talking about the piece on top surrounding it that has the "caution" info on it stamped into the plastic. I have taped it with black hose tape but will replace it if you think it is important.
Thanks.

My opinion replace it-it doesn't matter if it has no effects at this present time-you never know until it hits you-the M/C is supposed to be sealed-you don't want air to enter with low fluid-when air enters-brakes don't work effectively and can be dangerous.
