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.

It is one of two possible things:
There's corrosion in the caliper. Specifically in the groove that holds the piston seal. Take the seal out and scrape all signs of corrosion from the groove.
OR, the master cylinder has a gummed up check valve. Sometimes, you can take the master cylinder off, clean it out with hot soapy water (Simple Green works very well), blow it out with compressed air - and it'll be fine (without taking it apart). Otherwise, you'll need to get the rebuild kit and replace all of its internal moving parts.

Testimonial: "Thanks for quick response will do as you suggested."
the saddle bag on the left needs to be removed to access the caliper,then its the same as any other.be sure to not let excess brake fluid run out on the bike when you compress the caliper to make room for the new pads.

You have an air bubble in the master cylinder. If you are lucky you can wiggle the brake pedal and get it to move into the reservoir . Mechanics push brake fluid backwards from the brake cylinder to the master cylinder ( with a special pump ) to remove the air . If you have access, you can lay down plastic and rags and loosen the hollow bolt attaching the brake hose to the master cylinder ( about 1/8 turn) now pump the pedal once or twice. Re tighten the bolt while slowly pushing down on the pedal, re bleed the system at the back and usually this will get the bubble out.

SOURCE: how do i change the
The hardest part is securing the motorcycle with the rear wheel off the ground. Once you take the axle nut off , pull the axle out , knock out the spacer, take the nut off the brake actuator, You should be able to grab the wheel and slide it sideways off of the final drive spline. Now you should be able to roll the wheel out the back enough to take the brake panel off. you should now have access to the rear brake shoes. If you want to pull the wheel out completely you may have to let the air out of the tire to squeeze it past the final drive. Remember to regrease the final drive spline with Moly60 paste available at your local Honda dealer before you reinstall the wheel.
