Hae, for the brake fluid you can use either as long they're the recommended fluid either a DOT 3 or 4. For the brand it is your choice, all will work as long as it meets the standard criteria set in your owner's service manual.

Check the fluid level in the front master cylinder. Chances are you need to add some brake fluid and then bleed air out of the system. There is a bleeder valve on the handlebar at the lever and one on top of the wheel caliper. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

1998 gsxr 600 brakes lock on, new master and

Hi, If there is excessive air in your system after reassembly of master cylinder, the lever will have a spongy feeling about it and possible inconsistency or will have travel, bleeding the hydraulic system is best carried out by two people, remove the reservoir lid, top up over half and replace lightly to keep out dust, get a old glass jar, and a clear pipe that pushes down into the top of the bleeder valve, which is on top of the caliper block, and sink pipes other end into a little brake fluid in the glass, ensure there is always sufficient brake fluid in the reservoir tank, top up later if needed, use open spanner for bleeder valve, unscrew the bleeder valve one half turn and squeeze the brake lever as far as it will go, but do not release it until the bleeder valve is tightened again, repeat this a few times until a no more air bubbles come from the plastic pipe. Also, ensure all other joints are secured in this brake system, When all the bubbles disappear, close the bleeder valve, remove the pipe and install the bleeder valve dust cap. Check the fluid level in the reservoir, after the bleeding operation has been complete. Reinstall the Diaphragm, and the cap. Do not use the brake fluid drained from system as it contains minute air bubbles. There was the question of the locking pads, after the air is removed from the calipers, and there is still a prob, I might have the answer

Brakes on my 05 gsxr 600

sounds like bleeding them should help. It takes two people. Squeeze the brake lever about a dozen times, then hold the lever in. While holding, have someone loosen the bleeder valve on the brake caliper about a quarter turn. Just enough to see the brake fluid leak out and the lever start going in, then retighten the bleeder valve. Do this about three times for each caliper. Don't forget to keep an eye on the brake fluid because if you let it run out, you will put air in the lines and have to start over.
