Old brake fluid - New bike
Mike said 2003-11-14 09:04:16
How many people have noticed the age and performce of the brake fluid ,considering that the bike is a 2001 model and probably built in 2000,so that means the fluid is getting old and lost its guts.Mine deteriated after a couple of days riding with the feel going all spongey at first grab but still had alot of braking power. So out with the old ,In with the new and yahoo good brakes. Use a syringe and pump it up from the bottom through the bleed nipple after yorve drained all the old crap out,then bleed as normal including banjo bolts.Still yet to do the clutch. Has anyone played around with ignition advancing.I tryed about 5 degrees , it gained in torque and pick up but seemed to loose its free reving, so i opted for about 2-3 degrees still with improvment and revs. Any one with tips to share id be happy to listen.
