Hi John,

Doesn't your Honda have a combined brakesystem? In wich one front disc works on its own, and the other front disc works together with the rearbrake?
That could be the reason i think.

Hi Jannes,not on a Honda Deauville,and I can only think of Moto Guzzie that have the front & rear brakes that come on together,but only when applying the rear brake pedal,J.B.

The above link would suggest that some Deauvilles do have linked brakes and some don't..........?
