Even though the byline already indicates it, we’ll go ahead and mention it again: the following is a press release, and not an endorsement from Motorcycle.com.


Total performance lubricant manufacturer, Bel-Ray, today announced the launch of its all-new Racing Brake Fluid, the highest performing motorcycle brake fluid ever offered by the brand.

Formulated for use in high performance braking systems in a wide range of motorcycles on and off-road as well as on the track, Bel-Ray’s Racing Brake Fluid features a dry boiling point of 580° F (304° C). This makes it ideal for applications where extreme heat and high load braking are commonplace, and fluid breakdown is a key concern, such as with road racing, Motocross/Supercross and adventure motorcycling. Its high oxidation resistance ensures the fluid will maintain its performance under long term use.

The Racing Brake Fluid’s performance goes beyond its dry boiling point, with a wet boiling point rating of 410° F (210° C). This helps provide riders with consistent braking performance and peace of mind that the fluid will function in any condition, even when high levels of water contamination occur.

“We couldn’t be more proud to bring our Racing Brake Fluid to market,” said Andrew Hodges, Bel-Ray’s R&D Product Line Manager. “It doesn’t matter if you’re riding or racing, stopping is just as important as going fast. When riders use Bel-Ray Racing Brake Fluid, they know they will always have peak braking performance.”

Bel-Ray Racing Brake Fluid is designed for use in all hydraulic motorcycle braking systems requiring a DOT 3, 4 or 5.1 brake fluid, and is compatible with the seals used in those braking systems. Racing Brake Fluid should not be used in systems requiring mineral-based fluids (LHM).

Bel-Ray’s Racing Brake Fluid is available in 355 ML bottles from powersports retailers globally and online.
