Post Anyone know the full fluid capacity of the RS braking system?

<FONT face="Comic Sans MS">This is one that's not in the owner's manual... Has anyone bled their brakes and remembers how many fluid ounces of brake fluid you needed? I'm putting on a single stage booster and new ss braided brakelines in 2 weeks. I bought 32 fluid ounces in preparation for this, but I'm thinking it's going to be more like 64 fluid ounces to completely flush and refill the brakes. Any help would be most appreciated!

It holds less than 1 liter. I pushed out all the old brake fluid until I had pure blue at each wheel and still had not used up the can. What I don't know is if passive bleeding can get everything out of the ABS unit.

2 quarts is not enough to flush out the hole system. You need more like 2 1/2 quarts. Remember to take off all four calipers and turn them up side down to drain out the old fluid. Then with them disconnected start pushing fluid through until the new fluid is coming out all four lines them hook the calipers back up and bleed out the system.

If you don't do it this way the fluid is just mixing and you will be left with a mixture of both old and new fluid.

The brake system has a quoted capacity of 10.2 fluid ounces, but you may need up to 32oz to totally flush it well.

You won't need 64oz though.
