let’s talk Brake Fluid
Brake fluid absorbs moisture over time. Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means it can absorb moisture from the air over time. This moisture can cause the brake fluid to become contaminated and reduce its boiling point. When the boiling point of brake fluid is reduced, it can cause the brake pedal to feel spongy, decrease the effectiveness of the brakes, and increase the stopping distance. Changing your brake fluid every 2-3 years can help prevent moisture buildup and ensure that your brakes are working properly. Also, since it is a slow process, it is hard for the driver/rider to pick-up on any change of brake performance since it degrades gradually.
