CAUTION Position the vehicle on firm and flat ground. ◆ Make sure that the fluid contained in the reservoir exceeds the ” MIN ” mark stamped on the reservoir. MIN = minimum level. WARNING Do not use the vehicle if the braking system is leaking fluid. CAUTION Do not use the vehicle if the fluid is below the “MIN” mark. 1
27 use and maintenance Quasar 50 – 100 – 125 – 180 CAUTION Brake fluid level decreases as the brake pads wear down. Should the level be too low: ◆ Check the brake discs and pads for wear, see page 27 (CHECKING THE BRAKE PADS FOR WEAR) If the pads and/or the disc do not need re- placing: ◆ Contact an Aprilia Authorised Dealer that will top up the fluid. WARNING Check the brake for proper operation. When the brake lever has exceeding travel or if you notice a loss of braking, contact an Aprilia Authorised Dealer . The braking system may need bleed- ing. CHECKING THE BRAKE PADS FOR WEAR Carefully read page 26 (BRAKE FLUID – recommendations) , page 26 (DISC BRAKES) and page 34 (MAINTE- NANCE). Periodically check brake pad wear. The rate at which brake pads will wear depends on vehicle usage, riding style and road surface condition. Outlined below is a quick brake pad inspection procedure: ◆ Visually check between brake disc and pads, check both pads (1) looking from the bottom at the rear end. ◆ Should friction material (of even one pad only) be worn down to 1.5 mm of thickness, have both pads replaced
