I'm replacing my standard brakes with the upgraded ones off a 400hp VXR. How much fluid do I need to replace and bleed the system and what type of fluid should I use? Super DOT 4 or DOT 5.1? :confused:

Use DOT 4 as the DOT 5 will eat the rubber in the system.

I personally use the Motul 600. If you are changing brakes and flushing everything, I would start with 2 pints.

Good luck and nice choice of brakes.
