You may know this but the Gold Wing has linked brakes. The foot pedal activates the rear brakes as well as the left front. The proper bleeding procedure is to bleed the left front and then the rear. That said you could have a defective master cylinder or there may be air still trapped in the lines. You may have to do a reverse bleed in order to get it all out. Being that air travels up it is more efficient to remove the air with this procedure. look at this Youtube video.

I really like being able to come to a website like this and finding out how to make a job even more easy. :D
I'm guessing the same proceedure shown in the video can also be used for the clutch on a Goldwing. :?:
Just like on the little bike in the video.
