Brake fluid quickly ruins painted surfaces;
any spilled fluid should be completely
wiped up immediately.
* Brake fluid may cause irritation. Avoid
contact with skin or eyes. In case of con-
tact, flush thoroughly and call a doctor if
your eyes were exposed.
Periodically check the connecting hoses
(see "Periodical maintenance card"): if the
hoses (A) and (B) are worned or cracked,
their replacement is advised.
FRONT BRAKING SYSTEM BLEEDING
(TE, TC, TXC)
The braking system must be bled after the fluid replacement or
when, due to air in the circuit, the lever stroke is long and
Proceed as follows:
- Remove the rubber cap on the bleeding valve (1).
- Attach a clear plastic hose to the bleeding valve on the brake
caliper and turn the other end of the hose into a container
(make sure that the end of the hose is submerged in brake flu-
id during the entire bleeding operation).
