I have bought the 2017 rsc, not even bedded in the pads yet, and there is a tiny leak as seen in the photo.
It seems that this leak is not constant, cause the liquid is not accumulated so that it drips.
Even though it doesn't drip, it's just that when i dryclean this elastic edge (as seen in the photo in the red outline), its surface is wet again in a few hours.

It this normal, maybe because this is a some kind of 'blow off' valve?

Should i fix it or should i send it back for replacement?

PS. The leak is only in the edge (red outline), so it is really tiny. Leak nonetheless. The problem should be in the yellow circle.

I'd try cleaning with iso alcohol and give it a good wipe down. More than likely, it's the fluid from bleed port if you have shortened the hose and bled it

This is happening for the last 6 days. I dryclean it every day (just a cloth, no alcohol ) and in a couple hours it's slightly wet again. Could it be a bad seal? They're brand new damnit!
