Front Brake Fluid Reservoir

Could someone post a picture of their front brake fluid reservoir? I could be wrong but rather certain mine is empty (but working) unless there are other conditions to be met before fluid runs through it, which I do not believe to be the case.

Not a great pic but you can see a few air bubbles up top . Probably need to just take off the top cap at make sure you got fluid

New fluid (or new bikes in general) is really hard to see because it's nearly clear and if it's full to the top you don't get the little bubble to help out. It gets darker in color as the years go by.

Kawee is right, just pop the cap off and check it.

NOTE** It will peel paint if you spill so be careful and wipe up any drips immediately. Also, put antiseize on the threads of those two stupid little screws. You'll thank me later.
