2005 Concours and Honda linked brake system.

2005 Concours and Honda linked brake system.

2005 Concours and Honda linked brake system.

(OP)
I used to own a 1985 Honda Goldwing with this type of system. The foot brake applies the rear caliper and the front right caliper. The Front brake lever only applies to the front left caliper.
Has anyone tryed this with a Concours?

RE: 2005 Concours and Honda linked brake system.

If you want front brake, hit the front brake, if you want back brake, hit the back brake.  Linked brakes seem like a complicated solution to a problem that can be solved by squeezing the right lever a little harder.

RE: 2005 Concours and Honda linked brake system.

Motoguzzi was the first m/c manufacturer to come out with this linked brake system, if I recall. Like R1100RS, I have yet to see the need.

Got a date for that ? 'First' is always a big call!

I'm thinking 1978.

RE: 2005 Concours and Honda linked brake system.

I have this funny feeling that I should have said, "first linked HYDRAULIC brakes".

RE: 2005 Concours and Honda linked brake system.

Yep, just found the 1930 Matchless Silver Arrow! Linked f/r mechanical brakes!

RE: 2005 Concours and Honda linked brake system.

(Grins), yes, it is such an obvious idea that I guessed somebody would have tried it back when there were genuine innovations in automotive technology, rather than the endless recycling and fine tuning we do today.
