Brake Fluid

Inspection of brake fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir should be made every 1000 miles. The master cylinder cover should be level, when removed, and fluid level should be checked without changing the position of the master cylinder. If fluid level is below the cover gasket surface or below the cap threads, fluid should be added. (A small air space is acceptable.) If D.O.T. 3 brake fluid is used, the brake system should be drained, flushed, and refilled with new brake fluid every year to eliminate any contamination such as sludge. This yearly service can be eliminated when D.O.T. 5 silicone fluid is used. We recommend you use D O T. 5 silicone fluid for improved performance. All motorcycles produced since September, 1976 use D O T. 5 fluid.

WARNING — Brake fluid can cause irritation of eyes and skin and may be harmful if swallowed. If fluid is swallowed, induce vomiting by administering two tablespoons of salt in a glass of warm water. Call a doctor. In case of contact with skin or eyes, flush with plenty of water. Get medical attention for eyes. KEEP BRAKE FLUID OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
