revised How do I drain the brake fluid for a 1999 BMW K1200RS?
removed instructions as they don't take ABS in to account, and we gotta be pro!

comment Maintenance on used car with unknown history
Mechanics do use-car inspections all the time, for maybe $70-$100. They typically look for issues that will leave you stuck on the side of the road. It gives you a good starting point for doing DIY maintenance.

comment How do I apply dielectric grease to my battery?
The wire brush to use here is specially made for batteries, and pretty cheap. It is designed to scuff both the post and the terminal. Use it before applying the grease.

comment How do I apply dielectric grease to my battery?
MORE SPECIFIC SAFETY NOTES: - remove metal rings from your fingers. 12V won't hurt much if you get shocked, but a start battery can dump enough current (amps) through your ring to melt it. - remove negative first. Everything in your car is already connected to negative, so as soon as you remove this everything is dead. - battery acid fluid can eat holes in your clothes and skin, and blind you. Baking soda, nitrile gloves, and face masks are useful. Someone should ask a question about battery safety!

comment Reviving a vehicle that has been idle for a long time.
In my area, "idle" means the engine is running at minimum speed. You may mean "stored".
