My rear brake fluid looks kinda black.
Should I replace, or is this somehow supposed to be like that on the 800?
Mine is the same and has looked like that since new! I was going to give my dealer a hard time for using DOT 5.1 for some strange reason untill I took the lid off the reservoir and looked inside. When you take the cap off it looks like perfectly normal DOT 4.1 fluid. It seems that the plastic, although translucent land white in colour, changes the colour of the fluid when viewed outside to look dirty/purple.
