I just painted the front brake MC on the Hawk because the existing paint was damaged by some brake fluid getting on it. I really don't want that to happen again, so I'm wondering if I can use DOT 5 fluid, instead of the DOT 3 that is specified on the MC. I also have this issue on my KZ, so I'd like to do the same there as well.

Are there any reasons why I can't switch to DOT 5? I don't know much about either and their effect on the brake components.

Some rubber/plastic compounds are not Dot 5 compatable.....If it specifies Dot 3 or Dot 4 use only that.....
