Rear brake

Post by Kepanomooney » Sun Oct 21, 2018 10:02 am



Hi folks!

I have a ‘96 Goldwing SE and I am trying to save money and want to see if there’s an easier way to resolve the back brake issues I am having. When pressing the brake. It goes all the way down which I know is not normal. What do I need to do it get fix? Thank you

It depends on what the cause of the problem is. If you have air in your system, you might need to bleed and/or flush the brake fluid. Remember that the rear brake pedal also operates the front left brake caliper, so both need to be bled (the front one first, the the rear one).
