fluids change ?

Recommended Posts

Although my bike is 03 it's only done 1.5k miles, it's been sitting for a couple of years, i've changed the oil but should i do coolant and brake fluid, it's bound to be the original still in the bike?. tnx.

All fluids need to be changed. Specially to the brakes.. You can change $3 worth once a year, or you can let it cause damage, and change pistons, and seals ect over the life of the bike. Brake fluid is hydroscopic (it absorbs water) that absorbed water causes corrosion in the brake system. As well as the wet boiling point is lowered significantly when the fluid is contaminated with moisture

ok guys, i'm convinced, i'll start sourcing tomorrow, hopefully i can get decent brake fluid, i'm sure there's something on the forum about fork oil change, unless you wanna tell me, is it special oil?.
