Periodic Maintenance Procedures
Check that the brake fluid level in the rear brake reservoir
[A] is above the lower level line [B].
If the fluid level is lower than the lower level line, fill the
reservoir to the upper level line [C].
Change the brake fluid in the brake line completely
if the brake fluid must be refilled but the type and
brand of the brake fluid that is already in the reser-
voir are unidentified. After changing the fluid, use
only the same type and brand of fluid thereafter.
Recommended Disc Brake Fluid
Follow the procedure below to install the rear brake fluid
reservoir cap correctly.
First, tighten the rear brake fluid reservoir cap [B] clock-
wise [C] by hand until slight resistance is felt indicating
that the cap is seated on the reservoir body, then tighten
the cap an additional 1/6 turn [D] while holding the brake
fluid reservoir body [A].
Brake Pad Wear Inspection
Check the lining thickness [A] of the pads in each caliper.
If the lining thickness of either pad is less than the service
limit [B], replace both pads in the caliper as a set.
