Just changed the brake fluid.
I bled the front without any issues but the rear wont bleed down properly.
They lever has a squishy feeling. (air)
I have a service manual and followed the instructions but no success.
I think I missed something because it is a combined braking system.
I don't have a bleeder
I plan on doing as much maintenance as possible myself.
This is one of those maintenance issues I would like to clear up.
Thanks for your help.

Check the rear brake lever feel on another Silverwing.
When I rebuilt our orphan Reflex the spongy feeling of the rear lever after bleeding drove me nuts until I compared the feel to the Silverwing. I arrived at the conclusion that the lever needs enough travel to trip the start relay micro switch.
The first click you here is the brake light switch; the lever should feel somewhat spongy until you hear the second click. If the lever firms after that click is heard, you should be good to go.

I went thru the same thing. Still did not feel right. I was told the rubber brake lines expand some giving that feeling of air in the lines.

My 2010 silverwings brake levers have had a little squishy feel from the first day when I got it from the Dealer new and they work good.I think Honda pland to make them a little squishy so they do not grab to hard when first aplyed.
