Changing the front brake linings
Danger of accident Brake system failure.
Maintenance work and repairs must be carried out professionally. (Your authorized Husqvarna workshop will be glad to help.)
Skin irritation Brake fluid can cause skin irritation on contact.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes, and keep out of the reach of children.
Wear suitable protective clothing and goggles.
If brake fluid comes into contact with the eyes, flush the eyes thoroughly with water and consult a physician immediately.
Danger of accidents Reduced braking efficiency due to old brake fluid.
Change the brake fluid of the front and rear brake according to the service schedule. (Your authorized Husqvarna workshop
will be glad to help.)
Danger of accidents Reduced braking efficiency due to oil or grease on the brake discs.
Always keep the brake discs free of oil and grease, and clean them with brake cleaner when necessary.
Danger of accidents Reduced braking efficiency due to the use of non-approved brake linings.
Brake linings available in accessories stores often have not been tested and approved for use in Husqvarna vehicles. The
structure and fiction coefficient of the brake linings and thus their brake power may vary greatly from that of original Husq-
varna bake linings. If brake linings that differ from the original equipment are used, it cannot be guaranteed that these are in
keeping with the original homologation. In this case, the vehicle will not correspond to its condition at delivery and the war-
ranty shall be void.
Environmental hazard Hazardous substances cause environmental damage.
Oil, grease, filters, fuel, cleaners, brake fluid, etc., should be disposed of as stipulated in applicable regulations.
Never use DOT 5 brake fluid. It is silicone-based and purple in color. Oil seals and brake lines are not designed for DOT 5 brake
Avoid contact between brake fluid and painted parts. Brake fluid attacks paint!
Use only clean brake fluid from a sealed container.
Move the brake fluid reservoir mounted on the handlebar to a horizontal position.
Press the brake caliper onto the brake disc by hand in order to push back the brake
pistons. Ensure that brake fluid does not overflow from the brake fluid reservoir,
using suction to remove it if it does.
Make sure when pushing back the brake pistons that you do not press the
brake caliper against the spokes.
