Re: must I change brake fluid yearly?
I figured that since there is low humidity here, I could streaach out the brake fluid change.
My rear brake got spongy. I "stood" on the rear brake and couldn't get the ABS to engage.
I changed the fluid in front and rear at that point and then yearly.
Course, its an easy job on my 00, especially with the speed bleeders.
Recently, I changed over to stainless lines from the rubber ones. While riding, I pulled on the front brake and it slowly went soft. When I got home, it was easy to find the leaking brake line.
It will be interesting to see what the fluid looks like this coming Fall.
