Brake Fluid Flush Service

Service your machine with a Brake Fluid Flush at least every 2 years. Moisture in the brake system can be found in nearly all brake systems. Moisture enters the brake system in several ways. One of the more common ways is from using old or pre-opened fluid. Keep in mind that brake fluid draws in moisture from the surrounding air. Tightly sealing brake fluid bottles and not storing them for long periods of time will help keep moisture out. When changing or bleeding brake fluid, always service and replace master cylinder caps as a soon as possible to prevent moisture form entering the system. Condensation (small moisture droplets) can from in lines and calipers. As caliper and line temperatures heat up and cool repeatedly, condensation forms, leaving behind and increase in moisture/water. Over time, the moisture becomes trapped in the internal sections of calipers, lines, master cylinders, etc.

When this water reaches 212F, the water turns to steam. Many times, air in the brake system is a result of water that has turned to steam. The buildup of steam will create air pressure in the system, sometimes to the point that enough pressure is created to push caliper pistons into the brake pad. This will create brake drag as the rotor and pads make contact and can also create more heat in the system. Another way that moisture may enter the system is through diffusion. Diffusion occurs when moisture enters throught rubber brake hoses. Using hoses made form EPDM materials (Ethlene-Propylene-Diene-Materials) OR steel braided brake hoses with a non-rubber sleeve (usually Teflon) will greatly reduce the diffusion process. So, schedule your brake fluid flush today!Work
