Alright so I bought a 1983 GL1100 Interstate about a month ago that had sat for a year, from an older gentleman. I got it purring but the rear master cylinder was siezed, after looking over the whole bike I (through use of the do-it-yourself posts) rebuilt ALL the calipers, as well as the front and rear master. Heres were the problems start..... the front master will not flow with the first rubber suction-cup looking thing in it... when its not in there it flows just fine but wont build enough pressure to get a good lever.... the second problem is the rear master.... I took everything apart cleaned it throughly and put the recomended rebuild kit in it.... and now it leaks... bad... I have re-done both the front and back 5+ times each and come to the same result each time. Before I trailer this thing to a mechanic and pay more for the brakes than I did for the bike, can anyone give me any ideas?
