The hydraulic braking systems on your motorcycle dissipate the heat generated
by the friction of the brake pads on the brake discs as the wheels are slowed.
As the brake pads wear, the brake fluid level will drop. A leak in the system will
also cause the level to drop.
Frequently inspect the system to ensure there are no fluid leaks. Periodically
inspect the brake fluid level and the brake pads for wear.
If the brake lever or brake pedal freeplay does not feel within the normal range
while riding, check the brake pads for wear (page

probably air in the brake system. See your Honda dealer to have the air bled
from the system.
