Losing brake fluid out of lower resovior.

Postby golfrussel » Tue May 07, 2013 8:27 pm



2004 Goldwing losing brake fluid out of the lower resovior. I notice brake fluid down around the middle front of the bike, right behind the front tire. I removed the front cow and can see wettness in that area, that smell like brake fluid. I have removed the right fairing, seat and losen the gas tank enough to see under it. I don't see anywhere the fluid can be leaking. Has anyone experienced this issue before?

The issue was with a val located on the left side of the bike behind the fan. The brake line comes into this val and one line goes to the front right caliber and the other goes to the rear. Replaced it and bleed the brakes, no more losing of brake fluid. Thanks!

Glad to see you were able to find it. With brake fluid be sure to get any leaked out brake fluid cleaned off ,especially from off of the plastic pieces. ABS and brake fluid get to be expensive.
