How to check motorcycle brake fluid

Checking your motorcycle brake fluid

Brake fluid is one of the most essential factors in keeping you safe on the road. It doesn't simply turn pressure on your brake lever or pedal into compression of the brake callipers, it has the ability to withstand high temperatures and to protect and lubricate the entire braking system.

 

We don't recommend changing your brake fluid as a DIY job, as the consequences of failing to properly bleed air out of the system can be very serious.

 

However, you should visually check the level in your brake fluid reservoir at least once a week, and top it up with the appropriate specification of brake fluid if the level falls below the top mark.
