Spares for Avid Juicy 3 disc brakes

Postby cycle cat » 7 May 2014, 10:13am

Hello, does anyone know where I can buy some o rings for the fluid reservoir on the brake levers? I'm not after a complete service kit, just a couple of pairs of o rings.
We have two bikes fitted with these brakes. The seals have started to weep and I think it would be a good idea to bleed them.

I can find plenty of bleeding kits on the web. Does anyone know what type of brake fluid to use?

Thanks, CC.
Thank goodness for soup.

The fluid you need should be marked on the lever reservoir cap - probably dot 4/5.1 (these are not interchangeable with dot 5)
