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?

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.

No brake lights


It could be the brake pedal switch is corroded internally and needs to be replaced and could be the front brake switch needs to be cleaned by spraying WD40 or contact cleaner directly into the switch and working the lever..

  1. Origins
    • The Gold Wing Interstate can trace its roots to 1972 when Honda conceived a grand touring motorcycle based on the five- and six-cylinder racing superbikes of the 1960s. The new bikes dubbed the Gold Wing would feature a liquid-cooled four- or six-cylinder engine. In 1975, the Gold Wing GL1000 debuted with a boxer 999 cc four-cylinder engine. A year later, Honda launched the GL1000 Limited Edition, equipped with a chrome radiator, quilt-patterned seat and gold wheels.
    GL1100 Interstate
    • Following much clamoring from Honda enthusiasts, Honda launched the dressed GL1100 Gold Wing Interstate in 1980. It was the top trim level at the time, vs the Standard. Honda more or less copied the aftermarket bolt-on accessories available in motorcycles parts shops. In fact, the fairing, which is the windscreen and fiberglass protection mounted at the front of the bike to protect the rider, was not even a Honda option until the Interstate arrived. Honda now considered the Gold Wing GL1100 a true tourer with its Interstate model. However, many owners were never truly satisfied with the design as Honda focused more on performance than bodywork styling. In 1984, Honda dropped the Standard (unfaired) model altogether, and introduced the GL1200, with a 94-horsepower four-cylinder boxer engine. The GL1200 ceased production in 1987.
    GL1500 Interstate
    • Honda began tinkering with the idea of a larger Gold Wing tourer in 1984 and tested 15 different types of bikes to come with six-cylinder engine displacing 1500 cc. The result was the GL1500 that arrived in 1988. The engine was the boxer six-cylinder engine displacing 1520 cc. However, by 1984, Honda had dropped the Standard and the Interstate was Honda's base trim model under Aspencade and later, the LTD and SE trims. The Interstate's luxury accents disappeared, as Honda did not equip the 1991 models with cruise control or an onboard air suspension compressor. The stereo system was a low-end basic model and the bike did not have a reverse gear like other Honda models. Honda ceased production of the Interstate in 1996.
    GL1500 Interstate Specs
    • The Honda Gold Wing GL1500 Interstate featured a liquid-cooled four-stroke boxer six-cylinder engine with a 2.8-inch bore and 2.5-inch stroke. It had four valves per cylinder and developed 100 horsepower and 110 foot-pounds of torque. A six-speed shaft-driven transmission matched the engine. It rode on an 18-inch front tire and a 16-inch tire in the rear. Stopping power came from dual 11.6-inch front disc brakes with two-piston calipers and a single 12.4-inch rear disc brake with two-piston calipers. The tourer's seat only stood 30.1 inches tall and the frame sat on a 66.5-inch wheelbase. Its dry weight was a hefty 772 lbs. The fuel tank held 6.1 gallons.

Check brake fluid level. Sounds just like there is air in the system and needs to be bled out.

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.

Changed rear brake pads tryed to bleed in case of air but still have soft pedal


You have an air bubble in the master cylinder. If you are lucky you can wiggle the brake pedal and get it to move into the reservoir . Mechanics push brake fluid backwards from the brake cylinder to the master cylinder ( with a special pump ) to remove the air . If you have access, you can lay down plastic and rags and loosen the hollow bolt attaching the brake hose to the master cylinder ( about 1/8 turn) now pump the pedal once or twice. Re tighten the bolt while slowly pushing down on the pedal, re bleed the system at the back and usually this will get the bubble 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.
