Hi Friends,

Could someone tell me if we could find some good quality brake fluid in Thailand, with different indexes ?

The DUCATI clutch commands and brake commands require good quality fluids and if available it would avoid me to bring it back from abroad...

Never use silicone-based brake fluid when it is not required - it'll eat the seals and make the system a death trap!

DOT 4 fluid is specified for Ducatis , do not use Silicone based DOT 5 or 5.1 fluid it will damage the brake system unless the bike is a Harley or Buells which use this fluid as standard .

Good fluid , castrol , nissan , toyota and others can be found in thailand.

, japanese bikes use DOT 4 or for older models u can use DOT 3

Hi Friends,

Once again I must thank Jerry !!!

Jerry I'll be around from the 28th onward with the Techno Research equipement, if you are back from Europe we could meet.

Is there BUELLS in Thailand now ?

I am back on the 28th as well , but have to complete the reassembly of the S4 heads etc so the bike may not be running for a week or so depending on how busy I am.

There are Buells around in the dealers new and older models .
