Success - Finally..! (I was getting worried)

Post by Wingsconsin » Sun Sep 09, 2012 7:30 pm

Working on the '80 GL110I - Rebuilt the rear caliper last week with new pads...
Decided today was the day to rebuild the rear master cylinder....
It seems the parts kit I got was not quite right, :? ... and I put it together wrong the first time too...
So after removing and rebuilding and reinstalling the rear master cylinder 4 times.... :evil:
I got it working perfectly...During the test ride I was able to LOCK UP the rear tire...
And no rubbing --- the pads return to their place as designed...
I am now qualified to R&R the rear master cylinder in my sleep :ugeek:
Thanks to the many "how to" discussions here I was able to figure it out and even refrenced the online photos once during the rebuild (after I did it wrong)...
Next...? 2 front calipers & pads.
