X1 Rear Brake

Just bought a 2000 X1. Love the bike. The rear brake seems a lot weaker than my old Honda (also as compared to the front brakes)and was wondering if this is normal. I generally use the rear brake to slow down before a light (20-30 mph range) and I need to really press down on the pedal to come to a full stop.May be it is designed like this to prevent lock-up.

If your brake fluid is original you might consider replacing and bleeding the system as well.

How to check goldwing1500 front brakes?


start here ... http://hrca.honda.com/ ... sign up and get immediate access to generic service manuals. You can also purchase model specific manuals for a reasonable price.

As you know, the front and rear brakes are independent of each other ... engaging the front has no impact on the rear and vice versa. Is your disc drilled? When I apply the front brakes on my bike, I can hear the noise generated as the pads pass over the holes in the disc ... could that be what you are hearing?

Just bleed the brake system. That will take the air out of the system it is a common problem when you let a goldwing sit.

No rear brakes on 1985 honda goldwing aspencade. What could be the problem ?


Check your rear brake resevoir. Fill it with Dot 4 brake fluid and proceed to bleed the brakes, If this does not resore your braking and there is no sign of a leak on the rear caliper, you will have to replace the seals in the master cylinder, or the complete cylinder.

On my friends honda cbr 125cc bike, she is complaining of having heavy back brakes, what could the problem be


Brake shoes may need replacement.I would have to look in service manual for more info but many people use the rear brake more than the front to avoid front end washout so rear brakes wear out first.
Could also be the linkage from the rear brake pedal to the drum assembly needs lubing(rare).

Rear brakes don't work on 1996 goldwing


Yes the rear pedal operates the front RH disk as well.
When you bleed the brake do the front RH disk calliper first then the rear calliper.
Check that the pads are not beyond useful life and the not stuck.
