Master Cylinder Viewing Window Popping Off
Well haloooooo EX-ers!
It's been a LONG time since I've been here. Hope all is well with everyone. I'm posting this in troubleshooting rather than "other bikes" since it's not really a Ducati specific issue. (Or maybe it is!) Happy to repost elsewhere if you deem it appropriate.
I have a 2009 Monster 696 and the viewing window of the front master cylinder has popped out. Twice. (First time, I admit, I put it right back, topped off, and bled.) It doesn't happen while riding, it happens while parked, covered in my yard. Yes, it gets awfully hot under the cover, but... this is a new little trick it has come up with.
I get ready to ride, go through a quick pre-flight and... wha?? There it is. On the ground or in the cover.
Do I just replace the whole darn master cylinder? Has this happened to anyone else? It just seems so bizarre to me, I'm curious what other people have to say on this.
I still do have my old EX, faithfully waiting for me for when the Duc gives me trouble. (Frequent!) I may move the EX to Utah, since the beau (make that fiance!) moved up there.
