BRAKE FLUID

NOTICE

Spilled fluid can damage painted, plastic or rubber parts. Place a rag over these parts whenever the system is serviced.

• Do not mix different types of fluid, as they are not compatible with each other.

• Do not allow foreign material to enter the system when filling the reservoir.

FLUID LEVEL INSPECTION

LOWER LEVEL LINE

BRAKE FLUID

When the fluid level is low, check the brake pads for wear (page 4-30). A low fluid level may be due to wear of the brake pads. If the brake pads are worn, the caliper piston is pushed out, and this accounts for a low reservoir level.

If the brake pads are not worn and the fluid level is low, check the entire system for leaks (page 4-29).

FRONT BRAKE:

Turn the handlebar so that the reservoir is level and check the front brake fluid level.

If the level is near the lower level line, check the brake pad wear (page 4-30).

REAR BRAKE:

Support the motorcycle in an upright position on a level surface.

If the level is near the lower level line, check the brake pad wear (page 4-30).

FLUID FILLING

• Inspect the brake hose and fittings for deteriora­tion, cracks or signs of leakage. Tighten any loose fittings.

• Replace the hose and fittings as required.

LEVER POSITION INSPECTION

BRAKE FLUID

The brake lever position can be adjusted by loosen­ing the lock nut and turning the adjuster.

Turning the adjuster clockwise moves the brake lever farther away from the grip; turning the adjuster counterclockwise moves the brake lever closer to the grip.

Apply grease to the contact faces of the adjuster and piston.

After adjustment, hold the adjuster and tighten the lock nut to the specified torque.

TORQUE: 5.9 N-m (0.6 kgf-m, 4.4 lbf-ft)

If the brake lever freeplay exceeds 20 mm (0.8 in), there is air in the system that must be bled.

For brake system bleeding (page 16-7).
