Rear Brake
I have replaced the bushing in the Master cylinder,along with push rod assy. Then bled the clutch system, it works fine now , but I have a tight front lever brake but the rear foot brake is still soft.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks,

If you have floorboards remove the right floorboard and bleed the brakes again because it sounds like you have air in the system.

Remember your rear brake also activates one of your front calipers.. On my 84 its the left front.. So, bleading the rear master cyl involves the rear caliper and the left front caliper. I struggled with that for a while.. :oops:

edit. The manual for my bike said the rear pedal activated the front RIGHT caliper. Mine was not that way.. Its possible that they were switched at some point before I got the bike. YMMV.
