I responding to a post that stated "If the bike has a separate reservoir to fill (front and back) with DOT4 then they are separate lines."
Every Vstrom I've ever seen has 2 reservoirs so I assumed this statement was aimed at motorcycles in general.

Well OK, since we have deviated from the topic of Vstroms, why would an FJR have two reservoirs if they share the same fluid? How does that work?

The FJR has one reservoir for the front brake system and one for the rear. The rear system has a proportioning valve and a brake line that will actuate the front lower right cylinder under heavy braking. The front right brake cylinder has 2 lines going to it.
