1993 Goldwing foot brake & Carb Sinc

I own a 1993 Honda Gold Wing SE that has not been driven for about a year. Now, the brake pedal goes all the way down without any braking action. The front handlebar brake lever works fine. Fluid levels are fine and there are not any visible leaks. I suspect the rear master cylinder is faulty. Would you agree? Any suggestions? According to the shop manual, the rear master cylinder is a bear to replace. Any comments on that? Also seems that after starting I smell carb running rich. I also have problems starting in cold weather seems to need shot of starting fluid to get going. When on the road it is not able to go over 55 mph especially in OD. Carbs seem to be out of sinc. Would you agree? Any suggestions?

Just had that brake problem fixed on my 94.They had to flush the brake lines and master cylinder.The bike sat for two years and the brake fluid turned into jelly only the front brake would function.

My Honda 1500 manual says to drain carbs if not ridden in two weeks. I would think that not all the carbs are working, if it had not bee used much, hence not al cylinders working. As far as the rear brake. Check the rear slave cylinder first, and if that is ok then the master cylinder rebuild would be in order.

2000 Honda GL 1500 SE Gold Wing front brake lights not working


Hi, Bruce before diagnosing any brake light issue always check the bulb and fuse first for integrity a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, which is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually, rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air contamination in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch.

1995 Honda GL 1500 SE Gold Wing rear brake pedal has no pressure


Hi, Anonymous no matter how many times you try to bleed a brake system you can end up with a spongy lever/pedal because there is always a handful of air bubbles that absolutely refuse to be evicted from an airline, depending on the angle of the dangle, using conventional purging methods. You have 2 options:
1. Back bleed hook up a vacuum pump at the caliper and suck out the trapped air bubbles.
2. Pressure bleed this requires special equipment that most reputable shops will have and is guaranteed to get all air out.

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.
