1999 SE Rear Master Cylinder

Post by MrWheelie »



I'm trying to find what and how to remove parts to get to my rear master cylinder. Pedal has no pressure, I've tried bleeding front and rear.

Helpful video, but I'm trying to get to the master cylinder, can't figure out how to remove the rear floorboard.

Adjust the height all the way up, then you can access the mounting bolts.

Not in a million years would I put an open container of brake fluid in the saddlebag like that. All it would take is a few drops of brake fluid (never mind dumping that whole jar) onto the plastic of the saddlebag, and that saddlebag is ruined.

Exactly my thought. At the very least put a layer of old rags and a small plastic dish pan under the jar. And a lid on the jar, preferably both. 1500 saddlebags a getting scarce.
