  • Are the brake bleeding procedures the same on 2018 Goldwing as previous editions

    I need to bleed my brakes, want to follow the right procedures. Thanks in advance

    I just did mine, front master cylinder has two bleeders in this order, top left, top right. The rear master cylinder has three bleeders in this order, bottom front left, bottom front right and the rear is last. I think it is easier at least for the DCT.

        You won't find a bleeder valve on the master cylinder's of this bike.

            The procedure to bleed will be;
            1. TOP left front bleed using hand brake,
            2. TOP right bleed using hand brake,
            3. Left LOWER bleed using the rear brake pedal,
            4. Front right LOWER bleed using rear brake pedal,
            Finally, the rear brake bleeder using the rear brake pedal.

            The reason you use the rear brake pedal for the lower bleeders up front is because the rear master cylinder sends pressure to the front calipers as well as the rear caliper but only to the bottom. The hand brake sends pressure to the top of the calipers on the front.

              Sorry you didn't understand what I wrote, it is so 2nd nature to me I didn't think someone else would not understand what I was referring to.

                        The 2001 to 2017 1800 brake system had the back brake tied to the left front brake caliper. The new 2018 and up goldwing has front and rear brakes tied together but majorly different. The top of the front brake calipers are tied to the hand brake and the lower part of the front brake calipers are tied to the rear brakes. So the bleeding procedure is different for these bikes. A copy of the 2018 & newer repair manual can be purchased as a download for 29.95. Just as good and the same as the $175.00 OEM manual.
