Periodic Maintenance Procedures
Check that the brake fluid level in the rear brake reservoir
[A] is above the lower level line [B].
If the fluid level is lower than the lower level line, fill the
reservoir to the upper level line [C].
Remove the bolt [D].
Mixing brands and types of brake fluid can reduce
the brake system's effectiveness and cause an ac-
cident resulting in injury or death. Do not mix two
brands of brake fluid. Change the brake fluid in the
brake line completely if the brake fluid must be re-
filled but the type and brand of the brake fluid that
is already in the reservoir are unidentified.

reservoir body [A].
