Amount of Brake Fluid....

Planning on completely replacing the brake fluid but I only have 1 Liter of fluid...should that be enough or should I have more on hand? Does anyone know the exact amount of brake fluid?

I did a fluid swap in mine recently. I can't tell you the exact amount of brake fluid the system takes, but I can tell you 1L is more than enough. I used aprox 0.75L when I flushed out my old stuff and replaced it with the new.

brake fluid.

1L should be enough if your just swapping it out. also remember if you open up the system to change it out you'll have to bleed the air out of it. good luck!

More than enough you will only need at most 3/4 of a liter.
