PostPosted: Fri Apr 19, 2013 5:17 pm    Post subject: adding brake fluid Reply with quote

so I noticed my brake fluid is low (I donít think there is a leak) because i didnít see any on the floor under my bike. but there is a little squeaking going on when i come to a stop.

I thought I saw a video and tutorial on here a couple years ago on the process of adding brake fluid, i did a search and it only came up with like 6 results (non of them actually covered adding brake fluid, but rather had the words 'brake' and 'fluid' in the threads)

((I have no motorcycle/automotive knowledge)) so i like watching as many 'how to' videos as I can to gain confidence before attempting diy stuff..

Any one wanna help a brotha out???
Thanks in advance

If your fluid is low and there is no leak, its time for pads. Order pads before you take it apart.

I agree... No leak? Not low on fluid.... Your pads are thin . That's probably what's making the noise.
Change your pads and your fluid level will come back up. .. Good luck

.... and then bleed the brake to get fresh fluid in.

I don't bleed the brake after a pad change.. No need to.. Just do not open the fluid system anywhere....

Ok, come on guys and gals, OP said they have no knowledge, telling him to bleed the brakes or chanes the pads probably doesn't help at all. Anyone have a link to a DIY vid on changes pads, bleeding lines, and adding brake fluid?

Just go to UTube and enter "scooter brake bleed" or "scooter brake pad change".

My brake fluid is low and I came across this, do you guys have any recommendations for front brake pads or are they all pretty much the same?

All the stella models had the same front pads, which is part number C-4721834. You can find them just about anywhere.
