    brake fluid

    I'm about to replace the rear brake pads on my 2013 G650GS. I wanted to know if I a certain brand is better than other when it comes to the brake fluid. Any suggestions, comments? Thanks in advance.

    Pretty generic item, though some folks like oil preferences , will be brand loyal.

    Fresh fluid regardless of brand always good!
