Brembo smoked reservoirs.

Just an idea if you are looking to do something different on your Panigale. This is a few pics of the Brembo smoked reservoirs for the clutch and brake. I have these on another bike, and think they look much better on the Panigale than the translucent white ones.

Sorry the pics are so small, the ridiculously restricted upload size on the site wont let me post them properly.

On the list for when I do my fluid. Also would help to protect the fluid better from the sun. Most of the new bikes already come with those. Just saw my buddy 2017 KTM superduke

Looks good NOLA. I've had my eye on these for a while. I might have to pick up a set.

I got em from Ducati Omaha.

Beware, they had to ship from overseas. But they are OEM and perfect fitment, just takes a bit to get here.

58540221A 58540221A - RESERVOIR, BRAKE FLUID
58540231A 58540231A - TANK ASSY, RESERVOIR CLUTCH

Remember to get two of the second one, so you can do your rear brakes with it. Pic below

Nola,
Thanks for posting. I had some CNC ones for a short time for the bling value but went back to OEM once I decided to challenge myself to reduce the weight of my bike by as much as I can.

I imagine the material is slightly different for the tank itself. I imagine the weight to be similar. These look like a good compromise between heavy bling ones and OEM.

cheers

Good call. I've often thought this when walking around the dealers, you see these on the multi's and some scrambler's.

While I have the DP pots, I have to admit they're not that functional i.e. tiny window in them and you have to make sure lids are on very tight. These look like a good in between option.

Agreed. I am going to try to put the really high rez pic on a hosting service and post the link. It would sway your opinion the rest of the way. They look clean on the bike, like it should have had these from factory.
