Those of us who rode the 1500 are familiar with this type of rear brake problem. The design of the brake line connecting the front to the rear has a high point in it and after the bike sat for a while, such as over a bad winter I would have had no rear brake, because any air in the system would collect at that high point. It took a pretty tedious bleeding but eventually the air bubble would come out.
Now it seems that the 1800 has a similar problem. In searching this forum I came across "The Rocky Bleed" I don't know Rocky and I hope that he doesn't mind but I will post it in the next post. I have not done it yet but I will soon..

BRAKE BLEEDING SEQUENCE


1: Front Right Brake Upper Bleeder Valve
2: Front Left Brake Middle/lower Bleeder Valve

Rear Reservoir (under right side chrome engine cover)
1: Front Left Brake Upper Bleeder Valve
2: Front Right Brake Lower Bleeder Valve
3: Rear Brake Lower Bleeder Valve
4: Anti-Dive: bleeder valve on top
5: Rear Brake Upper Bleeder Valve


Do these two additional Steps to be sure you have no residual air bubble in the rear system!!


6: Pressure bleeding the lower Junction block. (Upper left side of frame sitting on bike).Follow rubber hose from Secondary master cyl to the Junction block.

7) Pressure Bleed the top Banjo bolt on the Secondary Master Cyl. (To be sure the air bubble is completely out)

The above is from the Rocky bleed and instructions 6 and 7 are the actual procedure for the Rocky bleed.

I took my 2013 Goldwing back to Honda of Knoxville where I had the recall done. Short answer from Service Manager per Honda....use front and rear brakes simultaneously to prevent rear brake shudder. No amount of yeah, but if, etc.....all resulted in the same answer. He did say that they have done approx. 1000 recalls and about 50 owners have complained about rear brake shudder after having the recall done. Even that results in the same answer, use both brakes. Something ain't right about this. Apparently this problem has been around for over a decade....Rear Brake Shudder



An Old Irish Blessing

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.




GL1800...that's how I roll!

Any idea on what is causing the shutter? My 2005 done it prior to the recall being performed. I also had the front services at the same time. It Had stopped for a few weeks but started up again . Is it not enough pressure due to linked brakes, faulty caliper , need stainless stew brake lines instead of the OEM? I am just stabbing at air offering my thoughts.
