Just a reminder.

check your manual and see if you should change brake fluid.

I do mine every 2 yrs.

Fluid absorbs water from the air, and boils at a lower temp. This gives you spongy brakes and the water will form acids , making damage to calipers and pistons , needing replacement.

Brake fade isn't fun , especially in the mountains or in a panic stop.

Just trying to keep ya'll safe.

If you change your own brake fluid, I highly recommend Speed Bleeders from these guys:

It makes it an easy job. Just don't overtighten the speed bleeders when you replace the stock bleeders.

I got the Stainless Steel Speed Bleeders ( https://www.silverwing600.com/t1038-speedbleeder-part-number-sb8125l#8708 ) to protect against over-tightening.

Overtightening stainless steel speed bleeders can still strip the threaded bosses of the bleeder ports on the calipers. Don't be lulled into a false sense of security by SS speed bleeders.
