i was wondering if it was possible to move my brake reservoir from my bars down to under the plastics? or is this not possible?

no the reservoir needs to be higher than the cylinder because it is a gravity feed system.

yes in order to do it you would need to use one of the master cylinder's with the removable plastic tanks. then use lines to run to a remote tank. the problem you run in to is there is no way to put it below the plastics and still have it gravity feed the cylinder.

i know the lever is attatched to the res but i was wondering if i move the master cylinder and the res all together and use a cable to activate the master cylinder that runs from the brake lever to the master cylinder to activate it. i was just thinking that it would look cleaner and not have a block of aluminum bolted to the bars. idk it was just a thought.

Big job, but that could work.
Depending on what kind of riding you are doing, you might be able to run a larger bore rear master and a proportioning valve. Then you could run the front and rear brakes with the foot pedal. Totally clean bars then. If you do that, you need to run a Rekluse and throw off the clutch lever so both sides match.

You still need a clutch with the rekluse surely.. That doesnt transform it into an automatic. Haha

The original z-start rekluse eliminated the clutch lever unless you purchased the optional over-ride kit. The EXP has to have the lever to adjust the gap but the core EXP I have in mine adjusts the gap on the pressure plate, so you could throw the lever off of mine no problem.
