When checking the fluid level,
make sure that the top of the brake
fluid reservoir is level.

brake fluid, otherwise the rubber
seals may deteriorate, causing
leakage and poor braking perfor-
mance.
Recommended brake fluid:
DOT 4
Refill with the same type of brake
fluid. Mixing fluids may result in a

lead to poor braking performance.
