A common Motorcycle maintenance task is to replace the hydraulic fluids in the brake and clutch systems. Hydraulic fluid will over time absorb water which causes the fluid to boil when the brakes are applied or the clutch is used, and thus reduce effectiveness of the system.
While you may consider this task to be complex, with a little knowledge and the right tools this maintenance item really isn’t that hard.
The primary tool you will want to invest into is a brake bleeding vacuum tool
. This tool makes the job quick, clean, and easy. Along with this you will need a box end wrench that matches the size of the bleeding nipple on your motorcycle. For mine this was 10mm for the brakes and 8mm for the clutch. Of course you will need the appropriate brake fluid along with a container to hold the old fluid. Finally some rags and paper towels come in handy to catch any drips or dribbles.
