Advisory : Rizoma NEXT FLUID Tanks - fluid leak

Folks,

For those interested in fitting the Rizoma FLUID NEXT tanks to your bike, be aware that the tubes that ship with the Rizoma 1199 Panigale mounting brackets have a fault on them. In a nutshell the tubes are too big and cause fluid loss via a slow and steady weep.

I have resolved the issue by using Brembo 6MM tubing which provides a much tighter fit.

I have attached pictures from the 1199 and 1098.

Trust this helps.

Tell them about the issue and to do a warranty claim with Rizoma. I would recommend you go with the BREMBO 6MM clear tubing - high quality product and looks trick to boot.

Thanks CaliDuc for the heads up!

My Rizoma Next tanks came with two different fittings for the tubes. I screwed in the smaller fittings that fits the original Ducati OEM Tubes in which I retained. I wasn't fortunate for the Rizoma rear brake tank (Non Next model) in which you cannot remove the fitting and I had to use the larger diameter tube but with the tube that came with the Rizoma Rear Sets due to the longer reach. Most likely they are the same Rubber tubes by Rizoma. I will keep an eye out on it for any leaks so far I have no problems. I wish the Rear Next Tank would have fit on the Pani without serious modification to the plastic bracket that holds the tank because I think it would look really nice.

The part I am using are Brembo Clear Brake/Clutch Fluid tubing 6MM and the Brembo Part No. 19.6371.26

You should be able to source these through you typical dealer, I sourced mine from ProItalia Brembo Clear Brake/Clutch Fluid Tubing 6mm - Pro Italia Motorcycles

In addition this type of tubing can withstand higher amounts of direct sunlight.
