Hello there, new to the forum.

Question, I have a 1985 FXRT and the brake system calls for DOT 5. I popped the cap off and behold the fluid is AMBER not Purple.

Did somebody add Dot 3 or 4 or did the purple dye wear off?

How can I check what fluid the system has?

Is there a litmus test or something?

Dot 5 turns a Coca-Cola color after a while. Not all DOT 5 is purple when it starts life either....
