Grinding reverse

My 95 AX15 grinds a bit when I shift to reverse. It does seem to do that a little bit less when warmed up, but it still does it. Is that normal?
Also the cap on the clutch fluid reservoir has no seal in it , just a vent hole. Am Iissing some kind of seal there?

Absolutely normal. AX-15s do not have a reverse synchro. Double clutch before throwing it into reverse and you will be fine.
Your master cylinder cap should seal and then act as a check valve.
