Since the brake system of this motorcycle is filled with a glycol-based brake fluid by the manufacturer, do not use or mix different types of fluid such as silicone-based and petroleum-based fluid for refilling the system, otherwise serious damage will result. Do not use any brake fluid taken from old or used or unsealed containers. Never re-use brake fluid left over from a previous servicing, which has been stored for a long period.
