Sorry to appear dense. I'm working thru my MP3 as it has been mistreated more than I first thought. Next on list is to replace dot4 throughout. Can anyone let me know how much fluid I need to get as I hate wastage both environmentally and ma pocket.
Also is there a reservoir for foot brake??????
I have scoured t'internet for answers but none have emerged

If you're only doing the brakes, then you can get by with just 250ml but that will leave you with little to no reserve.

Get a 500ml bottle if you are flushing the tilt lock system as well.

Motul makes a great DOT3&4 fluid that is very inexpensive and comes in a 500ml bottle. See link

The foot brake has its own reservoir located by the pedal behind the plastic access panel.

Buy 1lt on the net it probably will be cheaper than going into halfords and buying 250ml, while doing the bike do the car as well .
