In the first episode of our new Basic Motorcycle Maintenance series our trusted mechanic Rob Bean shows you exactly what it takes to service your bike’s brakes, taking you through the process step-by-step.

If you’ve always fancied getting your hands dirty and doing basic bike maintenance yourself, but have never had the confidence to get stuck in, this guide offers all the information you’ll need to get through the process.

NOTE: After any maintenance on your brake system, always remember to check the fluid levels and pump the levers to ensure your brakes are working correctly. And when it comes to grease, make sure to check your bike’s workshop manual for manufacturer advice. If you’re in any doubt about what to do when you’re working on your bike, consult a trained professional.
