Braking system inspection
Brakes are the most important safety feature of the vehicle. Braking systems may only be serviced by personnel with sufficient knowledge and previous experience!
Allow the brakes to cool down before maintenance!
Brake fluid must be changed once a year due to its hygroscopic properties. Only use DOT 4 from a sealed container!
Both (front and rear) braking systems must be checked for the following:
None of the calipers are seized.
The brake pad friction material is thicker than the wear indicator or 1 mm.
Rotors are not loose or warped and rotor thickness is at least 2.5 mm.
The fluid level in the master cylinder is above the ‘’MIN’’ marking.
Brake fluid does not appear discolored.
Brake hoses are not kinked or damaged.
There are no fluid leaks in any part of the braking system.
The system builds sufficient pressure when pumping the lever.
Brake Pad Change
Guides for brake pad change:
Brake pad life largely depends on the use of regenerative braking, thus making it individual for every rider. Use as much regen braking as possible to maximize the life of your brake pads.
