The guy who runs my local auto parts store only carries LMA in pints.
When I asked why no quarts he said the same thing as Ted. So whenever I
need to flush an entire system I open a quart I get at Pep Boys because
I use the majority of it. Anything left over usually gets used for
either clutches or as cleaning fluid when rebuilding brake components.
I went the Motul route for a while. It was a pain in the wallet to flush
the entire system every race weekend. Then I was preparing for a race
and realized I didn't have any Motul on hand. I flushed the system with
LMA and had no problems. Now I run LMA in the race car and have never
had an issue. When prepping the car for a race weekend all I do is bleed
the brakes a couple pumps each corner and top up from a sealed pint
Works for me, YMMV. I rationalized either Triumphs don't have enough
brakes to heat the fluid up to boiling, or if you are using that much
brake you are going too slow!

We stock it in pint cans. Quart cans are a waste since it will draw
some moisture before you ever use up the uart. $3/pt. Ted
