I've never changed coolant per schedule in multiple motorcycles or cars. Total waste of money IMO. Never changed brake fluid either unless replacing a caliper then just add as need to bleed. Never heard of having to rebuild brakes as maintenance.

1999 Concours had 58,000 miles on it when I sold in in 2017 or so, I got it with under 10,000 miles so I doubt the coolant was changed before I bought it. Never touched he brakes, took 2 tries to get the carbs right after sitting in a barn along time and a new gas tank.

I did change out GM's "green" coolant in a 03 Malibu right after I bought it with 11,000 miles because it is/was blamed for intake manifold gasket failure. No problems at 265,000 when my daughter totaled it.
