Brake Fluid Leaks
The most important system on any vehicle is arguably not the engine or suspension, but the brakes. A motorcycle that can go but cannot stop is an immediate danger to everyone on the road, including the driver. Because of this, any defects that affect the brakes from functioning are particularly dangerous and a serious matter for any rider. One common defect that can impair brake function is leaks.
Brake fluid leaks can contribute to dangerous brake failure and can possibly be the cause of very dangerous motorcycle accidents. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, it may be important to seek justice and proper compensation for your injuries.

Leaking brake fluid can be a serious problem for motorcyclist. Not only can this problem decrease your braking power, but it can eventually lead to complete brake failure. Preventing failure may require proper maintenance. The following parts of your brake system may be affected by leaking fluids:
- Master cylinders
- Rubber brake lines
- Brake line connections
- Brake calipers
It is crucial for your safety to inspect your bike before every ride and to look for signs of fluid leaks. Often these leaks will gather under your bike if you park it for a significant period of time.
