lows.Changing the rear brake fluid is the same as for
the front brake.

Remove the screws [A], reservoir cap [B] and diaphragm
Remove the rubber cap [A] on the bleed valve [B].
Attach a clear plastic hose [A] to the bleed valve on the
caliper, and run the other end of the hose into a container
Change the brake fluid as follows:
Repeat this operation until fresh brake fluid comes out
from the plastic hose or the color of the fluid changes.
1. Open the bleed valve [A]
2. Apply the brake and hold it [B]
3. Close the bleed valve [C]
4. Release the brake [D]
Fill the reservoir with fresh specified brake fluid.
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.
