Hey there, don't use dot brake fluids in your Maguras. Things will stick as the seals swell.
They use a light hydraulic oil, the Magura own brand is called Royal Blood and is blue and expensive!
People in my experience, find Citroen Hydraulic Suspension Fluid just as acceptable.

Have a squizz here....

Yeah, I've seen people using water, as well as baby oil. Or a mix with 5wt shock fluid. But definitely not DOT4!

And make your own decals


Bought these off Retro Decals

Cannot wait to get them on!

I will see how durable my own are and then maybe offer my services to others!

Looking forward to hearing/seeing the results

After applying the water slides are you clear coating them or leaving as is ?

I got one of them, mine came with the blue fluid Royal blood or dragons blood .... or something like that

Very easy to us, can’t see how you’d manage without the syringes etc
Money well spent
