I use castrol srf it has the highest boiling point of any fluid
but 70$ for a pint is a bit much

Any dot 4 is fine. Flush out the old fluid with the new if changing.

Bel ray is cheap and plenty good, i've even used Napa dot 4 before but get the belray for just a couple dollars more. The differences between fluid brands will mostly likely never be felt at the lever unless it's under extreme conditions.

Valvoline Syntec. Its DOT 4 and cheap so you can change it regularly, keeping out dirt and moisture if it happens to get in there somehow, without breaking the bank...just my .02 cents
