TRAC Valve Leak & Brake Fluid Mystery
Yes, the brake (and clutch) systems are closed systems.
Your brake fluid level will go down as the brake pad material wears. So you really don't need to top off unless you are on the verge of drawing air into the system.
If you do add fluid to a system where the pads have worn, when you replace the pads, and compress the piston into the caliper, your brake fluid will overflow at the master with the cover removed. If you don't remove the cover, you won't be able to compress the piston.
So, it is not a big mystery having low brake fluid level and still have great lever pressure.

As far as TRAC, check to be certain it is coming from the TRAC and not from the fork seal.
Check out the link below for available TRAC parts. You might be surprised at what is available.
If what you are looking for is obsolete, try searching the WWW with that part number, again, you might be surprised.
