    Okay I am planning on changing the brake fluid over to synthetic today. Do I just start filling the M/C up with the synthetic and flush it all out by bleeding them or do I have to evacuate the system completely refill it with synthetic and bleed the air out??

  8. Previous owner never changed Brake/Clutch Fluid

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    It was easy enough to flush/change/bleed the front and rear brakes, and the clutch fluid by myself with a hose, tub, and a wrench in about half an hour. This seems to be the one thing he neglected. Pair system was already removed, fresh engine oil/coolant, and he'd even rewired the charging...
