Color of BMW (Brand) Brake Fluid ?
I purchased BMW brake fluid at the dealer a couple of weeks ago. This is the first time I've used this BMW product, as I usually use whatever (DOT4) the auto parts store has in stock.
When flushing the brake systems on my bike(s) this week I noticed that (right out of the container) the BMW brake fluid is a light yellow color. All other brake fluids I've used were clear when new, so I'm concerned that I may have gotten a contaminated batch. The best description of the color would be (pee colored) very light yellow. However it is now very easy to see the brake and clutch fluid levels in the sight glass.
Is this the normal color of BMWs brake fluid?
