OThe fluid level must be checked often during the changing 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. OFront Brake: Repeat the above steps for the other caliper.
ORear Brake: Repeat the above steps for the other bleed valve.
• Remove the clear plastic hose.
• Install the reservoir cap.
Torque - Front Reservoir Cap Screw: 1.5 N-m (0.15 kgf-m, 13 inlb)
• Follow the procedure below to install the rear brake fluid reservoir cap correctly.
OFirst, tighten the rear brake fluid reservoir cap [B] clockwise [C] by hand until the resistance is felt fully; then, tighten the cap an additional 1/6 turn [D] while holding the brake fluid reservoir [A] body.
• Tighten the bleed valve, and install the rubber cap. Torque - Bleed Valve: 7.8 N-m (0.80 kgf-m, 69 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.
