NOTICE
DOT 4 brake fluid will damage painted and body panel surfaces it comes in contact with. Always use caution and protect surfaces from spills whenever brake work is performed. Failure to comply can result in cosmetic damage. (00239c)
NOTICE
DOT 4 hydraulic brake fluid is used in the hydraulic clutch. Do not use other types of fluids as they are not compatible and could cause equipment damage. (00353b)
NOTE
If DOT 4 brake fluid contacts painted surfaces, IMMEDIATELY flush area with clear water.
1.
Position motorcycle on a flat, level surface. Turn handlebar so master cylinder is level.
2.
Cover nearby surfaces with a polyethylene protective sheet to help protect against damage to finish caused by spillage of DOT 4 brake fluid.
3.
Clean the clutch master cylinder cover and the surrounding area. Remove and discard the original cover, gasket and screws.
NOTE
Do not overfill clutch reservoir. Clutch fluid volume increases with clutch wear. Overfilling can lead to damaged seals and damage to clutch system.
NOTICE
Do not allow dirt or debris to enter the master cylinder reservoir. Dirt or debris in the reservoir can cause improper operation and equipment damage. (00205c)
4.
Fill reservoir with DOT 4 brake fluid. Do not reuse old brake fluid. Use only DOT 4 fluid from a sealed container.
WARNING
Be sure the master cylinder relief port is not plugged. A plugged relief port can cause brake drag or lockup and loss of vehicle control, which could result in death or serious injury. (00317a)
5.
Verify proper operation of the master cylinder relief port by actuating the brake pedal or lever. A slight spurt of fluid will break the fluid surface in the reservoir if internal components are working properly.
NOTE
Before installing the master cylinder cover, verify that the cover gasket bellows is not expanded. If bellows is expanded, brake fluid ejects from the reservoir during cover installation, which could damage the vehicle finish.
6.
See Figure 1. Note the shape of the master cylinder cover. One end is thinner than the other. With the thinner end positioned above the brake line fitting, install the cover (with gasket compressed) Fasten the cover and gasket to the reservoir with two screws (4). Tighten the screws to 1.4–1.7 N·m (12–15 in-lbs).
