Brake Pedal

Postby lovig214 » Sun Jun 13, 2010 4:30 pm



Hi I am learning a lot about the Gw I bought this spring and it is fun.

I have another issue I am trying to resolve. The rear brake pedal does not return to the its neutral position. I have to use my toe to pull the pedal up so the brake light goes out. I have downloaded the Honda Manual and read that my 1983 gl1100 has a unified system. When I got the dike this spring I checked the rear fluid reservoir and it was empty or low, any way there wasn't any in the cup. The brakes are there but I have tried at low speeds in controled situations to try an lock the rear wheel up but have never been able to. I do have stopping power but maybe not what it should be. Does this indicate air in the lines, doe's the master cylinder need rebuilt. Is there a spring that pulls the brake pedal back up? Any Ideas where to start? Or any thought would be cool. Thanks Craig

Have a look at this thread. It's the exact same problem, and the exact same solution.
