Rear Master Cylinder access.....

Postby n5926g » Mon May 18, 2015 3:15 pm



Afternoon guy,s.... I have determined that the rear master cylinder on the GL1500 needs to be rebuilt.Normal bleeding procedures show VERY little brake line pressure...This bike has set up for years,and this comes as no surprise.....at any rate,the Honda service manual says I have to remove the exhaust,exhaust collector,and battery box....The battery box is already out....Looks like they tucked this thing way deep...is there any other way to get access to it?,or should I just "do it by the book" :o

Yes you need to remove the exhaust etc as the book says.

OK...Im used to doing things "by the book".....Once removed,how hard was it to rebuild? I am figuring the rubber parts have just disintegrated over the past 25 years.I have access to a brake cylinder hone...did you use one on your,s? or was it needed?......Cheers

The rebuild was very simple. I only lightly honed the cylinder to break the glaze. After having completed the task I was sorry I had not done it sooner as my brakes were amazing.
Good luck!
