Question about 1999 Honda GL 1500 SE Gold Wing
When I apply the rear brake pedal, there seems to a little rubbing (but not quite grinding noise) coming from the front brake. it's most noticable a very low speeds (even with motor off). The wheel is smooth. The brakes (both front & rear) work good. But what is that noise? Also, how do I check the front bearings? How & where do i grease the bike? (Where r the grease nipples?) Lots of questions for you. I hope I get lots of good answers! Thank you

As you know, the front and rear brakes are independent of each other ... engaging the front has no impact on the rear and vice versa. Is your disc drilled? When I apply the front brakes on my bike, I can hear the noise generated as the pads pass over the holes in the disc ... could that be what you are hearing?

Have you tried powering the brak circuit itself at bulb. If it comes on then you need to find broken wire between light and switches. Since neither work if you can trace to where they meet break should be behind that.

your brake fluid is shot ...no good, must be drained and Reserviced and bled.... use dot4 and insure all your brake lines are clean and in good shape.

sounds like weak fork springs go to progressive springs and do the fork seals at the same time and that should stop the wobble,also check your local bike shop to see if the wheel is out of balance
