  • Brake Fluid Flush?

    So I've never done a complete flush on a brake system. My only experience with bleeding brakes is on cars with installing new calipers. What's the correct way to flush the system? Keep bleeding the lines and keep adding new fluid until it looks all clean? I bet the fluid in my bike is from the factory because it looks like dirty swamp mud water in the reservoirs.

    Yup.......don't let air in!! The front brakes can be a pain to get it out.

          Also you may consider replacing the lines if they're older than 10 years or so. I've seen it recommended to change them every 4 years. But both of my bikes have the original lines (20+ years), so most people must not think it an issue.

            Yeah, that's probably a good idea as well. Anyone have any recommendations on where to buy the brake lines? Does SS lines make a good difference?

              SS lines are an amazing difference. There's a place that is recommended on here several times. It's in southern CA, don't remember the name off the top of my head even though I've used them twice now...Do a site search, it'll come up.

                I seen the CORE brand for $148 for both fronts and rear. Is that a fair price? Or good brand?

                  I got Venhill lines on ebay with 109 euros, when bleeding the brakes the easyest way is to suck the air out from bleeders

                    Goodrich is a good one also. $149 is fair

                      SS lines do make a huge difference, I used Galfer lines.
