MC Garage Video: How To Bleed Motorcycle Brakes

Brake fluid needs to be replaced every two years. Here’s how to do it.

Replacing your brake fluid and bleeding the system of air bubbles is regular maintenance that your owner's manual will likely suggest doing once every two years.

Replacing the fluid solves both of those issues, and we walk you through the entire process in this video from the MC Garage.
