When To Replace Brake Fluid?
« on: April 26, 2016, 08:47:02 AM »
Hello People:

Does anyone know when the brake fluid should be replaced on these JoyRides, RV 200 Evos, Bolwell Legrandes, RV180s?

I did not find a recommended replacement interval in the owners' manual.  :-\

Thanks in advance.

Like Mohd said.
It's a decent rule of thumb just due to atmospheric water contamination if nothing else.
Some argue that & really I've gone longer at times but it's pretty easy on a bike, & brakes are probably the most important system on the bike so why not?

It's very easy to DIY. I will change when I observe the liquid darkening in colour
