84 goldwing front brake & master cylinder leaking

Post by Smaltz79 »



Both my master cylinder & front brake are now leaking on my 84 interstate. How hard is it to rebuild them. I have rebuilt my slave clutch & brakes but the book is not as clear. hoping some one has a better step by step process. Any help would be appreciated. Also how long does it take generally,

Bike brake and master cylinders are all about the same .Once you have done one. Get rebuild kits. Check for rust and scratches in cylinders. Clean them up, lube with brake fluid. Make sure the rubbers are going the right direction. Take a few pictures. Each one may take 1-2 hrs. Do both front brake cylinders. If one is leaking won't be long before the other one feels obligated to leak as well. :roll:

Have a look at these - they are GL1100, but the process is pretty much identical:
