What Brake Fluid Are You Guys Using?

I just got my Oberon Clutch Slave Cylinder and will eventually get the Rizoma reservoirs so I will need to get some brake fluid.

Curious what you guys use / what is the best. Price is no issue, I want the best

I use a 'super' dot 4 brake fluid. It has a higher boiling point, and is designed for race or high-performance applications.

Motul RBF 600 since new. Might go to the 660 soon.

I empty all 3 of my reservoirs with a turkey baster thing (careful not to get air into the lines) then refill soon as I see a bit of colour change. Seems like I do the rear brake 5 times more often then the clutch and front brake.

Castrol react SRF racing is considered the best due to having the highest wet boiling point. (good for street bikes that dont change fuild every weekend)

Thou there is a few thread going around about aftermarket Race fluids reacting with the Brembo seals and causing issues.

For the Clutch system, stick with normal Dot 4. you dont need the Temp rating taht you do in a Brake system.

Also using motul RBF600.

I use two separate syringes. One clean / one dirty to replace my fluids via the reservoirs. Every other time I'll do complete flush when I do an oil change unless it was done sooner.

I'm going to give Maxima Racing DOT 4 a try. It's got a 600F/410F min Dry/Wet boiling points. At half the price of MOTUL.
