    2nd yearly service

    Just had my second yearly service. At this service there is also a check on coolant and brake fluid quality.
    My moto2 required a change of brake fluid. I appreciate that the main dealer works to standards dictated by the factory for specific models but a change of brake fluid after 2 years ? Am I missing something ?
    Your thoughts please.

    Brake fluid is hygroscopic(absorbs moisture from the air), so yes, regular changes are required.

    Hi far canal, thanks for the reply. Perhaps I didn't phrase the query properly. As most moto2s were sold 2020, have any other owners had their brake fluid changed this year ? I understand the properties of brake fluid and that track bikes would have their brake fluid changed at shorter intervals. Personally I've never changed the brake fluid on any cars or other motorcycles I have owned, let alone after 2 years from new.

    As Far Canal said, brake fluid pulls moisture out of the air. it becomes problematic when the brake is hot and the water in the brake fluid starts to boil as a result, vapor bubbles form and thus air bubbles, which can lead to brake failure. change every 2 years during normal street use, change after 6 track days when used on the race track
