· FORUM GODFATHER.....R.I.P. PAT
The car needs it too. DOT 3 and 4 both absorb water from the air and need to be flushed every couple of years.
No bashing, but I think that if you do a flush and bleed you'll be pleasantly surprised at the improvement.I never bother with changing brake fluids out on anything unless I am draining them for another reason. But, I never ride in the rain unless it gets me already into my ride. If its raining when I am ready to leave the house, I'll drive or play with something else.
Unless I lived where its VERY humid, love the rain, or spend a lot of time on the coast, I wouldn't bother.
I am a high mileage guy too. Big believer in synthetics and all the stuff that makes the engine tick forever. But brake fluid changes just don't register on my to do list.
Let the bashing begin.
