Have you check to see if you have brake fluid in master cylinder. Its located behind right side cover.if no fluid you will have to install fluid and bleed read brakes.

do your self a favor and get some speed bleeders... check the level of fluids... do you get any fluid out then you try to bleed them???

If your fluid reservoir is empty, then you probably have a leak...just a caution....

My exercise bike is a goldwing.
