Hi Dan,

We had to come up with a definition of easily checked in the early days because the EU didn't bother to specify what they meant (no surprise there).

It's the note just below 12, if you can take the lid off by hand that's fine, if it has a viewing window or is translucent so that you can see the level that's fine too.

If the reservoir is solid and the lid needs tools to remove it then the tool required must be part of the vehicle equipment. So the allen key or screwdriver or whatever needs to be on the trike and not in your pocket.

Hope this helps.


The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.
