I have a 2001 300 exc and ever since i took it out of the box the front brake pull has been too much. the lever hit my knuckles sometimes! i tried putitng in dot 4 brake fluid becuase the dealer i bought it from said you can mix dot 4 and dot 5.1 (which i cant find any where!). the brakes work fine. a friend of mine has a 2000 300 exc and i tried his break and its not like mine. he said he never touched his. thanks for any response.
