Am I correct in thinking that it's ok to upgrade from DOT 4 to DOT 5.1 brake fluid by just bleeding the DOT 5.1 through on top of the DOT 4 that's already in my braking system?

I am going to start doing some track days this year and think that it's worth changing to DOT 5.1 fluid. How often should you bleed DOT 5.1 as I am aware that it takes on moisture alot quicker than DOT 4 does?

Cheers

Stefan.

So can I assume that its ok to leave DOT 5.1 in the system for 1 year before bleeding?

It wouldn't bother me if I had to do it every 6 months because fluid is relatively cheap and is a very simple task to bleed.

Looks as though I might aswell re-bleed some decent DOT 4 through my system in March then :)

Cheers for all of the feedback.
