Check the brake fluid level.
  
Take care as brake fluid can harm your hands and eyes and damage painted surfaces. If fluid gets on your hands or in your eyes, flush the affected area with clean water immediately.
  
If brake fluid level is lower than the MIN line, check the clutch line or brake line for leaks and inspect the disc brake pads. If necessary, refill the reservoir with brake fluid to the MAX line after repair or replacement. Use the specified fluid. Avoid mixing different brands of fluid.
