Question about Honda GL 1200 Interstate Gold Wing Motorcycles
It depends on whether it has a rear disk brake or a rear drum brake. If it is a disk brake the caliper will have a small bleed screw on it, all you do is fit a piece of clear hose to it or use a vizibleed which is basically a hose with a one way valve on it. Pump up the rear brake pedal and keep it held down, best to have two people. Then you crack the bleed screw by about 1/4 of a turn and allow the fluid out, tighten and repeat until all the old fluid is replaced by the new fluid.
If however it is a drum brake, you need to locate the drum adjuster. You will see an arm coming off the rear axle housing which looks like a gear lever, it will attach to a rod with a spring and a nut on it. Basically you tighten the nut until you get some pedal pressure.
However which ever version it is, you may want to change out the shoes/pads first.
