How to Change Brake Fluid in a Motorcycle

Motorcycles go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under 3 seconds. With all of that speed, stopping becomes even more important than in a car. To make sure your motorcycle stops properly and consistently, you should change your motorcycle's brake fluid about every two years. With a brake bleeding kit, changing your motorcycle's brake fluid can be done simply and quickly.

Instructions

    1

    Attach the bleeding kit tube to the brake fluid nipple on the brake caliper. Twist loose the nipple. The old brake fluid will empty through the kit's tube into the kit's container. Place the container that comes with the kit into a larger container to collect any spillage.

    2

    Remove the master cylinder cap to make sure it does not completely empty. Refill the master cylinder with fresh brake fluid while the old fluid is flushed out.

    3

    Pump the brake lever so the brake fluid is forced through the tube into the container. You will know that the fluid is fully flushed when the fluid in the bleeding kit tube is completely clear.

    4

    Keep squeezing the brake and re-tighten the brake fluid nipple. Replace the master cylinder top cover. Remove the brake bleeding kit and clean up any spillage. The fluid will harm the paint if it is not cleaned completely.
