    What type of fluid goes in the front hydraulic brakes of the banshee? I have banshee front hydraulics on my blaster and the fronts keep locking up. They are both clean and the cover is an aftermarket so i dont know if it uses the dot 3 or the dot 4 fluid.

    Whatever you do, use a brand new, unopened bottle. Get small ones. Brake fluid isn't good if it hangs around in the garage for too long, even if it's capped. It absorbs water real easily and it doesn't work as well once it has absorbed the water....which is why sometimes just bleeding brakes makes them fell 10 times better!!
