Periodic Maintenance Procedures
Change the brake fluid.
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].
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.
Repeat the above steps for the other caliper.
Remove the clear plastic hose.
Install the diaphragm, diaphragm plate and reservoir cap.
Torque - Front Brake Reservoir Cap Bolts: 0.70 N·m (0.07
kgf·m, 6.2 in·lb)
Tighten the bleed valve, and install the rubber cap.
Torque - Bleed Valves: 14 N·m (1.4 kgf·m, 10 in·lb)
After changing the fluid, check the brake for good braking
power, no brake drag, and no fluid leakage.
If necessary, bleed the air from the lines.
Loosen the reservoir cap stopper bolt [A] to remove the
reservoir cap stopper [B], reservoir cap [C], diaphragm
