Triumph TR6 Brake Fluids
Remember to change or even improve the fluid. DOT 3 fluids should be replaced every two years. As an alternative, specially if you are replacing calipers and cylinders, is to flush out the pipes and install silicone fluid. Silicone fluid is non-hygroscopic so it does not lead to rust problems in the lines, calipers or cylinders. The bonus is- it won’t damage paintwork!
We have heard many complaints that the brakes become spongy after silicone fluid has been used. This may be due to a reaction with traditional fluids which causes seals to harden and fail. So make sure that all traces of old fluid are carefully removed. Once the silicone fluid is in use it will provide years of trouble free braking ending the monotonous and expensive pastime of repairing or replacing worn or leaking brake components.
