Can someone tell me how to adjust the front and rear brakes of my 1998 Honda Aspencade?

Thanks. I am an old english rider and this technology evades me. I will talk to my dealer. After reading the articles, I believe it is time to bleed them, as the pads on the rear were changes in the past year with little wear. Rear break requires extraordinary down pressure.

you have linked brakesthe pedal for the rear works one of the front brakes too. so if the rear was blead the front brake that it is linked to may need to be blead too to get the air trapped there out also check the front brake pads

I did not know that front and back brakes where partially connected. I will keep that in mind when I have them checked at the dealer.
