Like someone said, all BF starts get tannish colored quickly, days to weeks, after fluid change. It attacts water molecules from the air, etc. I know it's a closed system, but you don't put it in in a vacuum, some moisture gets in. Eventually, it starts to pit the inside bore of the MC and wheel cylinders, etc.
That being said- it's a good idea to run new stuff thru the system every so often, etc. OCD people do it every season, etc.
Now, proper bleeding of the system is a whole 'nuther post.
* Edit- I use a 1/4" clear tubing like for fish tanks and put it on the bleed nipple- fits air tight, then put the end into an old 'catch' container can/jar/bottle.
This way I can 'see' the air bubbles coming out of the nipple!! When no more teeny bubbles, go to the next spot/nipple.
* 2nd edit- I also just use DOT 4- Walmant brand- ooh, I know that's popular here! I don't have a link, but I'm pretty sure it'll do just fine.
Good luck, ride safe
