some people have tried to bleed the brakes on their Wings and have soft pedals after they are done. There is a set sequence in the way they have to be done, make sure you do it that way or it's useless. Here it is

Front Brake Reservoir

1: Front Right Brake Upper Bleeder Valve 8mm

2: Front Left Brake Middle/lower Bleeder Valve 10mm

Rear Reservoir (under right side chrome)

1: Front Left Brake Upper Bleeder Valve 8mm

2: Front Right Brake Lower Bleeder Valve 10mm

3: Rear Brake Lower Bleeder Valve 8mm

4: Anti-Dive: bleeder valve on top 10mm

5: Rear Brake Upper Bleeder Valve 10mm

Joe, you're amazing! I'm sure that will help out a lot of home wrenches with brake woes.

1995 Anniversary Edition Goldwing

Hi, I am a first time Goldwing owner, I just purchased a 1995 Goldwing with really low miles but has sat for 10 years in a garage without being run.

I replaced the tires and got the engine running, however the rear brakes are not working. Front brakes work fine, rear brake pedal just goes to the floor soft.

I have searched around on the forums and it seems there is a problem with some kind of balance valve in the main brake cylinder.

I was planning to replace all the brake fluid and bleed out the lines. Will the bleeding sequence you mentioned also work on the 1995 era bikes? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Wayne

I am currently having the same issue with my 88 model 1500. I have rebuilt the rear brake caliper, to no avail. I am waiting on some responses to determine if I need to rebuild the master cylinder or not.

Bleeding on the 1500 is pretty simple. You can use a vacuum bleeder if you have one, if not, just put a hose on the bleeder valve, and the other end into a container of DOT4 brake fluid. Remove the reservoir cap. Crack the bleeder valve open, and pump the pedal until you see clean fluid going thru. Make sure to keep the reservoir full. Then close the bleeder valve and top off the reservoir, and see if that fixes it.

If not, I have read several places, that you can weigh down the pedal with something heavy, for 24-48 hours, and that is supposed to work.

As far as a sequence, everything I have read says to bleed the left front caliper first, then the rear one. They both work off of the same MC & reservoir.

Hope this helps
