    I'm renewing the brake fluid on my Honda NSC 50 Vision, which has linked brakes. I've already bled the two circuits operating the front caliper.

    I assume there is a hydraulic cylinder which operates the rear brake, and the fluid in that cylinder also needs to be flushed. Is that right? Where is that cylinder located and how do I get to it?

    If the back brake is hydraulic the fluid resivwar should be beside the rear brake lever. If it isn’t there the back brake is probably cable operated.

    The 'rear' (combined) brake lever has a fluid reservoir and brake cylinder, which feeds one of the two brake circuits in the front caliper.

    But it turns out that the big shiny pipe coming off the cylinder and heading towards the back of the machine, which I thought was another brake line, isn't a hydraulic pipe at all. It's a sheath containing a cable which operates the rear brake.

    Problem solved!
