Luv this thread!

Can U add "changing the air filter" (preferably for +09') please? I bought a filter months ago but am dreading taking the gas tank off.

If I'm changing the brake fluid using a new brand or type of brake fluid, then I follow the same procedures as bleeding in the video except I just add the new brand of fluid instead of the stuff that's already in there and keep doing the procedure until the old stuff is completely out of the line and the new stuff starts coming out of the line, right? That's how I understood it from reading the service manual, but I just wanted to check here before trying it myself.

when doing your brake fluid. you always want to keep new stuff in the lines. dont mix and match brands. Always use DOT4.

So... am I right about how to flush out the old stuff and replace it with new stuff or not? You didn't answer my question.

sorry my ADHD kicked in. Ya you flush the fluids till it is all new fluid. when bleeding the system, you want to see no air bubbles and all new fluid coming out of the calipers. Make sure you keep the reservoir filled.

I have looked through this forum all day looking for a simple answer and can't find one. Forgive me if this is a newbie question, but how do I tell if my break pads are worn without taking them off, and at what mileage should I replace them?
