Rear Brake
I finally managed to get a break in my schedule and the weather this afternoon so the wife and I did a 70 km loop with the 'Wing. Whoopee! The only problem I noticed, apart from the brisk-ish temperature, was the almost complete lack of rear brake pedal. The front was fine and firm. Pushing on the rear brake pedal was like pushing on a weak sponge with the result it hardly slowed us at all.

Being a technical virgin, what could the cause be? Is there a master cylinder re-build kit available/needed? New fluid perhaps?

The brake pedal is a unified system using the the right front and rear brakes.

I would change the fluid using DOT4 bleeding the front right first then the rear.
The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.
