Most people know that changing the oil is an important part of motorcycle maintenance, but replacing brake fluid isn’t given nearly as much thought. Brake fluid absorbs moisture in the air over time. Neglect to change it out regularly and it could result in spongy feel at the lever and less stopping power. You don’t need me to tell you being able to stop a motorcycle is important. Before going on to change brake pads or lines, try changing the fluid first and bleeding the lines properly. It might deliver a dramatic change.
