PERIODIC MAINTENANCE AND MINOR REPAIR
Recommended brake fluid:
DOT 4
Refill with the same type of brake
fluid. Mixing fluids may result in a
harmful chemical reaction and
lead to poor braking performan-
ce.
Be careful that water does not
enter the brake fluid reservoir
when refilling. Water will signifi-
cantly lower the boiling point of
the fluid and may result in vapor
lock.
Brake fluid may deteriorate pain-
6
ted surfaces or plastic parts.
Always clean up spilled fluid
immediately.
As the brake pads wear, it is nor-
mal for the brake fluid level to
gradually go down. However, if
the brake fluid level goes down
suddenly, have a Yamaha dealer
check the cause.

Changing the brake fluid

Have a Yamaha dealer change the
brake fluid at the intervals specified in
the NOTE after the periodic mainte-
nance and lubrication chart. In addi-
tion, have the oil seals of the master

listed below or whenever they are
damaged or leaking.
Oil seals: Replace every two
years.

years.
