Should be done every so often anyway. Dot5 gets murky.

Sorry guys did not know older bikes came with dot 5. Put in what it says on the cover.

I am. I've been using DOT 5 on my Brembo setup since I installed my Marchesini wheel setup with the Brembo brakes in 2008. No issues at all.

Fluid does look brown (like poop) so this weekend will flush entire brake system and clutch as well. Thanks for all the feed back
