Brake Flush ??

I need to replace my brake fluid & have never done a flush before.

 

How difficult is it to do ?

 

Is regular DOT 4 fluid o.k. to use ?

 

Thanks in advance for all replies.

On the R1100 series it is straight forward. Put fresh fluid in the master cylinder, crack the bleeders and pump the fluid through. If you have ever bleed any brake system on most anything, it is the same. DOT 4 is just fine.

 

Note to other new readers - The R1150 and R1200 hex head series (up to '06 model) are decidedly different!

Yes they are, but an average wrench with a few basic skills can do it successfully!
