Question about 1993 Honda GL 1500 Aspencade Gold Wing
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.
