    Not oil thread

    Brake fluid spec calls for Dot 4 any difference in various brands other than price, shape of container or quantity? I have a 1994 1100RS with abs putting new brake lines on so let me hear the recommendations, also 1/2 pint or 16 oz. to do the job?

    The small bottle is enough to fill that R1100RS system. I don't think there is any significant difference among the brands. I get mine at Autozone.

    But maybe it _could_ be an oil thread?

    What's the difference between a hydraulic fluid and hydraulic oil?
