Clutch and brake fluids 3?-5?

My Monster 750 says "use only D.O.T. 3+5 brake fluid from a sealed cantanister" . My question is do i use a 3 fluid? A 4? or a 5? since the bike was purchased used i don't really have a way of knowing what was previously used. I'm tempted to just pee in the reservoir and hope for the best.

DOT4

Castrol sells some good stuff that's not very expensive. You can pick it up @ Autozone/etc

I'd recommend changing it all out, if you've never done so.

It's only about $5 for the fluid.

There's quite a few helpful people that would assist you in doing such a job. I figure $15 for a 12-pack and you're good to go.

If you weren't in Dallas, I'd offer to come by.

If by costly you mean $20 for a vacuum pump, and time consuming you mean a half hour......then yes.
