Re: What kind of brake fluid does everyone use?

I use the Honda DOT 4 and never had a problem. I am sure there are others that are better.

Re: What kind of brake fluid does everyone use?

I'm not sure, but I think the boiling point is higher on the Motul Racing stuff.

Re: What kind of brake fluid does everyone use?

I wonder if my local shop has any... probably not since they SUCK

Anyone have a place online they get it from. Don't mind it taking a few days since I still have to finish the springs and remount up the carbs.
