    Dot 5 fluid in juicy 3's

    As usual I was not paying attention and bled my brakes with some dot 5 silicone fluid. Will it ruin my brakes? By the way the lever action sucks, all the way to the bars.

    I would just bleed them again (very thoroughly, probably 2 full cycles of fluid) with the correct stuff. They'll probably be fine.
