Safety Check - Condensation Level in Master Brake Cylinder

While at an event this past weekend at Smokin’ H-D in Winston-Salem, I decided to have my 2013 Road Glide serviced. I was due and it’s always a good idea to have a certified H-D technician give your bike a thorough safety check. My service tech, Casey, went the extra mile and educated me on the dangers of condensation levels in the master brake cylinder. He used a new diagnostic tool and found that the condensation level in my master brake cylinder was at a dangerous level - above 4%. Even though the H-D hydraulic brake system is sealed, its fluid can get contaminated and lose efficiency. The main source of contamination is water that mixes with the brake fluid due to condensation within the brake system. I am now taking my Heritage to have the same test and I'll be checking the condensation levels much more regularly.

Be sure to discuss this with your service technician at your next appointment. Considering the alternative, it’s well worth it to make sure you stay safe on the road. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents can still happen.
