You see those stock ugly plastic reservoirs on World Superbikes and MotoGP....so I'm good.

Just a word of warning, I swapped out the original reservoir to a beautiful looking Rizoma one, it was fine for a while then started to leak.  No matter what I did the lid just would not seal properly.  A quick google will show you I'm not the only one to have experienced this, I'm back with the original now, not worth the risk imho.

Interesting, have had no issues with either of mine - 31k mile on the R and 23k miles on the XR, both fitted with Rizoma, no leaks

I actually prefer the look of the stock res to the aftermarket ones and it's super light.

I've not noticed a leak with my rizoma reservoir. I will add that if I had to do it over again I would probably just put a sock on it. The rizoma looks nice but is expensive for the job that it does.

Thatís what I did. Money saved would be spent on other things, like gas.

You can have both you know.

Its not a choice of 1 or the other.
