Brake liquid spilled

The brake liquid spilled and damaged the windshield and instrument panel, it is a brand new panigale 959 still on warranty, have anybody had the same problem? How did you fix it?

the only fix is to replace it, from what I've been told. it's the most dangerous fluid in the bike, outside of battery acid of course, but acts similar to it. you don't ever want to get brake fluid on anything

My clutch master began to leak right on the tail end of my warranty and AMS Ducati Dallas replaced the front, left upper, and left lower fairings due to the fluid running down the bike.

If you caused the fluid to leak, then you might want to spring for a replacement windshield and hope that it cleans off the cluster. It mainly strips paint and discolors the film on plastics, so you might get away with just a slight blemish on the clear pieces.

If there was a leak that is covered under warranty, have everything it touched replaced.

Novus plastic polish really works well.

Give the three step process a shot before replacing expensive plastic items, if you end up not getting warranty coverage.

I just bought a low mile 959 and on my first ride I also had brake fluid make its way onto my windscreen. I was able to polish it out with Metal Polish, then Rubbing Compound, then Carnuba Wax using a power drill and a Mother's Power Ball. It took a lot longer than expected. I ended up removing the screen which of course I dropped the tiny well nuts into the fairing then I got to learn how to remove all of the fairings. So yeah, it took about 7 hours.

I learned alright, I'm not letting that happen again. After a thorough bleed and flush of brakes and clutch.

I bought a screen saver (plastic film to cover the screen) and put that on just to be extra safe - I’ll post a link to it tonight - it came from the UK and is supposed to be great
