Can anybody direct me to some documentation on rebuilding the rear break Master Cylinder? I have a 1984 Goldwing 1200 Interstate.

Thanks Paul

It's fairly similar to the 1100: How to rebuild your rear master cylinder. Once you get the master cylinder off the bike, it's almost identical to the 1100, although with two brake lines instead of one, and it has the pressure control valve integrated. The 1200 requires the removal of the right side passenger footrest, and while the service manual says you need to remove the entire swingarm to get the master cylinder off, I have read of people who have taken the master cylinder off without pulling the swingarm.
