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.

I have a'90 goldwing,I cannot get brake fluid thru

Your rear brake pedal operates the rear caliper and the front disc. When you tried to bleed the left front caliper you let air into the rear brake system. Bleed the rear brake and front left caliper using the rear brake pedal that should restore the rear (and front) brakes.

I have a 1993 honda goldwing i turn it in to a trike and now when i hit a hard bump it dies i have to turn the key off to reset it and start up

I'm not a Gold Wing owner, but from your brief description it sounds like an electrical problem.When it "dies" do the lights etc. die too, or is it just the engine that dies? Look for loose wiring especially around ignition switch and battery. This is a good place to begin.

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.
