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.

The Goldwings have integrated braking systems. Does the rear brake not work at all, or only when you press the rear brake pedal, or only when you squeeze the front brake lever?
First I would flush the fluid front and rear. Then I would remove the calipers and inspect them, are the pistons moving when you push the pedal? Rebuild them if needed.

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.

My rear brake pads and rotors have worn out in 1 year and the front brake pads are the original and don't look worn at all. My sub has 150K miles


Its possible. There is an equalizer valve that balances pressure to the 4 wheels.
Two other possible causes are a problem with the parking brake, or the front rotors and pads are glazed and not providing any friction.

1983 Honda GL 1100 brake calipers are dragging


Hi, Scott and the usual suspects are:
1. Caliper, bracket, wheel, or brake disc not properly spaced.
2. Contaminated caliper causing the piston to stick.
3. Wrong type of brake fluid causing seals and o-rings to swell.
4. Wrong brake pads for the caliper.
5. Improper free play at the master cylinder.

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.

Just bleed the brake system. That will take the air out of the system it is a common problem when you let a goldwing sit.
First bleed the front left brake then bleed the rear brake they both work off the brake pedal.
When you are done with that bleed the front right brake with the hand brake lever,
Get a service manual for your wing it explains how to do many services and it will save you money.
