Periodic Maintenance Procedures
Brake Fluid Change
The procedure to change the front brake fluid is as fol-
lows. Changing the rear brake fluid is almost the same
as for the front brake.
Level the brake fluid reservoir.
Remove the reservoir cap [A], plate [B] and diaphragm [C]
Remove the rubber cap from the bleed valve [A] on the
front caliper [B].
Attach a clear plastic hose [C] to the bleed valve, and run
the other end of the hose into a container.
Fill the reservoir with new brake fluid.
Temporarily install the reservoir cap.
Change the brake fluid as follows:
The fluid level must be checked often during the chang-
ing operation and replenished with fresh brake fluid. If
the fluid in the reservoir runs out any time during the
changing operation, the brakes will need to be bled
since air will have entered the brake line.
Repeat this operation until fresh brake fluid comes out
from the plastic hose or the color of the fluid changes.
Open the bleed valve [A].
Pump the brake lever and hold it [B].
Close the bleed valve [C].
Release the brake lever [D].
Front Brake : Repeat the above steps for other caliper.
