Question about 1982 Honda GL 1100 Gold Wing

2 Answers

Back Brake A few months ago my 1982 Honda Goldwing rear brake continued applying pressure after I stopped for a moment, and continued applying pressure until the bike would not move. I have replaced the back brake caliper and bled the lines a number of times, but I continue having this problem, any ideas?

    I have pulled upon the pedal trying to get it to release and have had no success. This does not seem to fix the problem. Thanks!

    On my 1982 Honda Goldwing the back brake is a stand alone system. The rear brake master cylinder not releasing pressure sounds like the problem. Any ideas on what could cause the pressure not to release?

My gl1100i (82), did the same thing, but was a combo of problems--my slides on the rear caliper were scarred/market, had to replace them. The master cylinder up on the right side, just below the seat had black/black brake fluids, needed a complete flush. With a 1/2 gallon of Wlamart break fluid for $3 and I have a MOSTLY working back break now. Minimal bleeding efforts.

In the very bottom of hte Master Cylinder for read there are two tiny holes, one even tiner thatn the other. One of these are blocked with crud... Flush flush, hopefully you won't need a rebuild kit.

Sounds like the foot brake pedal may not be returning to resting position.

    If you have replaced the caliper and bled the lines,Another thing it can be is the rear brake master cylinder is not releasing pressure.

    The front left brake and the rear brake on most goldwings are tied together,so you may need to bleed the left front as well.



    If the bleeding don't work,Look at the master cylinder







    Hope this is a Fixya solution.

    Usually they just get gummed up over time from oxidation and break down of the rubber seals and fluid.

GL1800 electrical problem


Hi, Anonymous 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.

Rear brake on 1996 goldwing keep loosing pressure


Sounds like the caliper is leaking brake fluid. Have you changed brake fluid lately? That should be done every couple of years. One way or the other, your getting air in the line.

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.

How do you adjust the rear brakes on a 1982 goldwing interstate 1100? Tom


There is no adjustment other than pedal height , which is adjusted at the master cylinder by loosening the lock nut and turning the stud that pushes on the piston. If the the brake is sticking , take the master cylinder apart and make sure the brake fluid feeder(big hole) and the fluid return hole(pin hole) are both clear. Also make sure the caliper is clean and floating back and forth. That is so one brake pad does not wear out faster than the other.

Replase seal rear shocks 1982 goldwing still leaks fluid what did i do wrong


Seals can become fish-mouthed (if the seal twisted one one side)you would probably have to do them new again.If the shock was scarified or rusty seals get ruined quickly.How much air pressure is applied can also blow them out if its to much.

Brake problems


by repressurize, do you mean 'pumps up'. If everytime you hit the brakes (allowed to sit for a few moments between uses) it starts applying the brakes near the 'normal' pedal position, then it sounds like the master cylinder has gone bad.

Other less likely causes, lots of water got in the brake fluid (assuming nonsynthetic brake fluid) and has turned to junk.... Might try power bleeding the system, but my bet is the master cylinder.

Peace,

What is the proper procedure to bleed the air out of the rear brake system on a 1995 honda goldwing? The rear master cylinder applies brake pressure to the front and rear disk brakes.


The one man way is to get a small botle( a spice bottle and fill it about a third of the way up. Place a piece of tube (clear preferably)of the proper dimension over your bleeder valve located on caliper. Then open bleed valve and presson brake pedal. If all bubbles escaped thru tube into bottle, then you may repeat untilno bublesremain then tighten bleeder valve. If bubbles remain in hose, close bleeder before releasing brake. This will probably require an assistant. Ensure you keep reservoir from going dry by filling when necessary. Repeat as necessry until all bubbles are gone from brakelines.

91 goldwing stops when brakes are pplied


You have a wire that is shorting to the ground in the brake switch system. It's probably not in one of the switches, since it happens when either brake is activated. More likely wire grounding on frame or in harness somewhere. You should hear something in your headset when this happens. I am supprised that it hasn't blown fuse. Rick
