Rear brake reservoir hose kink

Does everyone's reservoir hose look like this? I guess that's the way Ducati designed it but, it doesn't seem right.

No. That isn't right. You should be able to move the fitting. It should spin fairly freely.

Mine is slightly kinked. Less than yours, more than I'd like. Glad you noticed and posted this. Probably need to trim the hose a tad?

Thanks dragoontwo, I was able to rotate the fitting; taking some but, not all kink out of the hose. I'll have to keep an eye on the fitting to see if it rotates back down again. If it does, maybe I'll trim the hose when I change that coffee colored brake fluid
