Hi there.
Has anyone used any third party Dot 5.1 fluid to bled Avid's brakes?
I've got an emty Avid bleed kit byt no fluid in it.
I couldn't find any Avid's DOt 5.1 fluid on web. I found it only with bled kit.
There are quite few non-Avid's fluid on market.
I would rather buy Avid's original Dot 5.1, but ....
Cany anyone had any experience with third party Dots?

    yerm think the DOT stands for Department of Transport: all is to a published standard.
