General Brake Maintenance
  • Check for pad wear or debris.
    Keep the pads and discs clean.
    An occasional brushing of the disc holes is worth doing maybe once a year.
  • Check hydraulic fluid level.
    Make sure the brake fluid is in good shape and the type/specs you need.
    If in doubt, replace with fresh fluid (not from an already opened bottle).
  • Make sure the brake fluid reservoir is not over-filled (top).
    There has to be some empty space, or your bike will be lightly "braked" and your disk/pads will deteriorate prematurely...and you will get less range.
