    At near £300 I'd rather just replace it :Smile: But yeah, in an ideal world...

    I know ideal for a racing team but that PDF does drive home the importance for brake fluid changes, its more important than engine oil changes in my eyes.

    I think my next big investment tool wise will be a pressure bleeder.

    Thanks, you'll need to run by me what caps are needed for the CH1/CL9 if/when I do order one.

    In an ideal world one for each but there is a universal one too.

    The boil meter is a good tool, but that's a lot of money.
    I think that if you change the brake fluid religiously every other year, that should see you okay. What do you think @Ichiban?
    The handbook says to change the brake fluid every 3 years?

    I think I may switch from every 2 years to annually then. :Niceone:

    I like that suction tool, will look in to getting one of those they look well made,
    Strange that being such a safety issue that car makers do not fit silicon fluid systems to the brakes as this never needs changing and will always be in spec ,I know it cost more but at least it would be used not like some of the crap put on cars and never used,EG voice recognition .

    Its is very well made mate, however they are not that transparent as in the picture they are more translucent.

    I bought two one for old fluid extraction and one for new fluid just for bikes,so I don't have to move or remove reservoirs to get a bottle mouth to them they can be done in situ,
