  • Brake recall question....

    My question is what did the dealer miss or do wrong?

    I had the brake recall work done a couple weeks ago. A very short ride home and the brakes seemed ok at the time but today when I took it out for a long run I find I had to pump the crap out of the back brake every time I needed to stop. The front was also taken care of when I did the recall. The front brakes are good. The bike will be going back in next week to see what the dealer missed. There are new pads on the bike, front and back last fall so only about a thousand miles on the bike so I don't think that's an issue. Fluid level is where it should be.

    Just curious if any others have had such an issue with the recall or is my local honda dealer just an idiot!

    It sounds like air in the rear brake system but shoddy work in any case.

      Time for a "Rocky" brake bleed.

        Thanks guys... I took the bike back in this morning, they bled the brakes, no charge. Working great now like they should! Thanks again!
