I have a 2009 Silverwing 600 and Ram handlebar self leveling cup holder mount. Any problem using the brake reservoir mount to mount a cup holder?

If I put it in the small space between the turn switch and the handle bar cover, it will be really tight.

But the screw holes for the handle bar ball and socket mount, match up with the screws that hold the brake fluid reservoir.

Since I don't know anything at all about what I am doing, if I take the reservoir screws out, do I risk loosing any brake fluid? Or do those screws just hold the reservoir to the handlebars?

I do guess that I will need to get some longer screws by a quarter inch or so.

Motorcycle Larry does a Ram mount which replaces the reservoir top cover.  It works well, I have used it (the same one !) on several different Hondas as they all use the same cover.

Nothing to it. I have a RAM cell phone holder on the left brake reservoir. The instructions for the top plate say to use a bit of Loc-Tite on the threads - DO SO. I say, "Loc-Tite? Not me." So it loosened up after a few miles (100 or so). Loc-Tite fixed it. Brake reservoir top comes with several different lengths of screws, choose carefully, not too short, not too long. Works great. Mine however does not REPLACE the cover, it comes with a set of spacers that mount the plate 1/8 inch or so above the existing cover.

Just me I guess, but even with a modular helmet, I can't see how I could drink coffee while riding along at 55 or 60 mph! Maybe a soda from a cup with a straw, but I'm not sure it would be worth the distraction. I don't see the practicality or understand the use?

Not everyone rides on the highway. I'm 95% town riding. In 95 degree heat is great to have a sip at the stop lights.

I have had a cup holder on every motorcycle I have ever owned.  I like the availability of a bottle of water or a cup of coffee while riding.

I use the brake handle ram mount.   I have never used the brake fluid cover ram mount, but I would think they would be pretty reliable as well. The sheer strength of those screws seem to be sufficient. I just started using brake handle ram mounts and I take them back off when I sell a motorcycle and reuse them.

Another cup holder option is shown on the top right in this picture from my album:

Attaching a cup holder Collag11

I used a barBuoy.
It has the added benefits of thermal properties and it won't swing around with your handlebars
For larger drinks you can remove the soft insert and toss under seat.
