    How is the rear brake pedal in 650 removed? Do I just slacken the bolt at number 13 and pull the lever off?

    Hi all, Today I was servicing the rear brake and all was going well until I started trying to bleed the system, after pumping the rear brake pedal for over an hour I couldn't get any pressure at all. I have blead brakes a few times before and haven't had this issue. The reservoir was full...

    Me and Jnr decided to have a go at doing the clutch yesterday evening which took about an hour to remove the allen bolts ,brake pedal and footrest. Upon closer inspection the clutch plates didnt seem to be too badly worn but the sides of the clutch basket are a bit which is probably why the...

    Brakes!! Guys, would you be kind enough to show me the rear brake switch position on your frame. My bike came needing a rear brake switch, I bought an original Honda switch, part no 35350-KE5-405 but I can't see how the switch attaches to the frame by the rear brake pedal, there's no obvious...

    Hey all, first post! I need to lower my pedal height but the clevis is pretty tight on the pushrod, i can't get anything to hold onto the pushrod as there is not enough room, but was wondering if I can remove the pushrod without leakage? I can't quite tell from the diagrams and wondered if...

    Gear pedal pivot bolt sheered this morn, on the M60 - which was nice! I changed gear by hand and limped the last couple of miles Anyway, Hunts had one and every bolt on the hanger cracked immediately making removal of the snapped stud a doddle. It literally turned itself out, drilling from...

    Hi all. My 2002 650 has a floppy rear brake light spring. People usually recommend twisting it to tighten it, but that isn't working here. It just doesn't transmit the movement of the pedal. Pushing down on the brake pedal, the lower portion of the spring moves, but the top part doesn't. Does...

    The nice man at the MOT centre gave my Vara an unofficial advisory that it would need new rear pads again soon.... The Vara really eats them... 8K miles! So I thought I'd get a pair in. As my Vara rear brake has always been crap of the First order, any recent recommendations please?? I prefer...

    After putting bike back together for a swingarm strip I cant get the rear brake light to work properly. Its staying on constantly, I can wiggle the connection and get it off but the moment I touch the brake pedal its back on again. Any tips or hints as Im a crap electrical solver of puzzles

    Sorry to be tedious, but I've just changed the oil and filter on my RD02 and filled up with about 1.9l of oil. This time I thought I'd follow the manual and advice on here and remove the bolt above the brake pedal and let the oil trickle out until the correct level was reached. I'd run the...
