Attention! It is recommended to change the brake fluid every two years. It must be remembered that different brake fluids cannot be mixed. Brake fluid is toxic, use caution when handling it. If it comes into contact with the skin, wash it off with warm water and soap. Do not allow brake fluid to come into contact with painted parts of the motorcycle.
Clean the reservoir cap before removing it. Use DOT 3 or DOT 4 brake fluid from a sealed container.
1. Using a Phillips screwdriver, unscrew the two screws of the tank cover.
2. Remove the tank cover.
3. Remove the membrane plate.
4. Shoot membrane.
5. Carefully inspect the reservoir cap, membrane plate and membrane for damage. Before reinstalling, they should be cleaned of dirt and residual old brake fluid.
6. Remove the protective rubber boots of the brake caliper bleeder fittings and put elastic transparent hoses of suitable diameter on the fittings, the other end of which is lowered into clean containers filled with fresh brake fluid.
7. We loosen the tightening of the bleed fittings by unscrewing them with an 8 mm key by 0.5-1.5 turns.
8. Drain the brake fluid by gently depressing the brake lever. In order to avoid splashing out the brake fluid, it is recommended to cover the master cylinder reservoir with a clean rag.
9. After the start of draining the brake fluid, it is necessary to add fresh fluid to the reservoir to prevent air from entering the system.
8. When fresh fluid comes out of the drain fitting, the fitting must be tightened. After tightening it, it is necessary to press the brake lever several times until resistance appears. After topping up the liquid to the upper mark in the viewing window, install the membrane, membrane plate and reservoir cap. We wrap the two screws of the cover, wipe the drips of brake fluid with a rag.
We change the brake fluid in the rear brake mechanism.
1. Using an 8 mm wrench, unscrew the bolt securing the reservoir of the main brake cylinder.
2. We remove the tank on the hose from the frame pipe and unscrew the lid.
The further sequence of work is the same as for the front brake mechanism (see above).
