BRAKE FLUID

Does anyone know how much a shop charges about to change out your brake fluid if you already have it?

looks like Motorcycles Unlimited is prob right down the street from you.. They are fair.

Or learn to do it yourself.. Its very simple to do, but can get messy if you arent careful.

If you don't replace the fluid in the hose/lines as well you are still leaving in there. To do it right you need to bleed the old oil out of there. Its not that hard honestly. You can even get bleed kits from the autoparts that helps.

Dude.. dont stick anything in the reservoir, and true above.. The dirtiest fluid is inside the calipers/lines.. They get all the heat exposure.
