    Fork Oil on Brake

    My brothers bike was above mine in a rack and his fork leaked a ton of oil into my back brake - a Formula K18. I am going to clean the rotor with isopropyl alcohol and replace the pads. Is there anything else I need to do to restore it to working order?

    Just make sure you get all the oil off. The new pads will need to bed-in before full power returns.

    Get a can of Bel-Ray Brake & Contact Clean, spray the whole caliper system down & clean the rotors at the same time.

    I prefer the smell of the generic stuff. Haha. Some of those brake cleaners can leave a bit of residue though. Car and motorcycle brakes can generate a lot more heat that bikes.

    You haven't smelled Bel-Ray then. There is no residuu it evaporates dry.
