Rear brakes
I've read on the forum that the rear brake is connected to the left front!
But on the 87 1200i that i have it is connected to the right front is this the correct setup or is it backwards, and i am sitting on the bike when i say right and left even the manual said that you bled the left front with the rear ,i've got it done
but like to know if it's setup right or did the P/O setup it up backwards. Also read that you need to change the piston when you work on the the brakes calipers each time or can you get two or three pairs of pads out of them?

From the Honda 84-85 Service Manual

Service Information

This motorcycle has a unified brake system which provides simultaneous braking action of the right front and rear
disc brakes when the brake pedal is operated. The hand brake lever operates the left front disc brake, which is
independent of the unified system.
The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.
