Most low profile fluid tank mod - need your opinion!
« on: March 30, 2019, 04:04:06 PM »
Would this mod be possible?

The idea: Cut the tube short. Use a fluid tank which as a connection that points down instead than on the side. Position the fluid tank further down.





So instead of using this tank:


I'd choose this one:


Or this one:



It points down, has less height and looks even more low profile.

I'll get handle bar mirrors installed which point down. I can't bear anything sticking out the top like the original tank.

Any ideas to get this right? Will this work?

I would think the reservoir would need to be highest point in system but your idea looks solid. Curious to see how it turns out.

Thanks for the reply mate! I even found someone who did it exactly like that.
Will talk to my dealer tomorrow and see if he can do it.




Looks so much better than the stock one!
I hope it's also usable.

Great idea but I'm no mad keen on the bracket he's used to hold the resevoir on to the bar.

I agree. Let's see what my mechanic comes up with. The rizoma reservoir looks awesome when you have it in your hands. Can't wait to get it installed!

I'd be interested to see how it looks when you get it done.
