Very old nooby!

Hi all, I'm Chris. On the cusp of 75 and still enjoying my motorcycling.
We have three bikes at the moment, the indomitable Yam XS850 Triple, the sleek and reliable Deauville and the beemer F650 GS.

Still finding our way round the Honda and the BMW.

I've got the Haynes for the Deauville but it doesn't show how to get the rear brake lever off!

It's things like that I hope to learn from this site.

Good riding, spring's nearly here :-)

Regards

Chris

Haynes used to be a solid choice, but since about 1980 it's become more and more useless. These days the only thing their product is good for is jackstand padding or birdcage liner. With the advent of the internet as a popular tool, people often go looking for PDF copies of the factory service manual.

What year's the Deauville?

Hi CB700S,
It is 2002 V2

I unscrewed the large hex bolt that goes through the pannier attachment and rather expected the brake pedal to loosen up if that bolt was also the axle. But it clearly isn't.

How much do I have to take off to be able to grease up the pivot?

Regards
Chris

So what you're trying to do is remove the brake pedal from the pivot to grease it?

FYI, you can get the actual Honda service manual, in English, via Torrent from here: http://www.torrentino.ru/torrents/18...orkshop-manual

Just press the green Russian Download button and use whatever torrent client you wish to download it utilizing the resulting file.



Looks like it comes off just like the 919 does - remove the cotter pin, push out the odd clevis pin to disconnect the brake pedal arm from the master cylinder (look out for master cylinder leaks!) Once that's done, remove the C-clip and washer holding the pedal onto the pivot and then remove the pedal. No bolt removal required - make sure you put back whatever bolt it was you removed and torque it to spec.

Is there a wrist pin at the back of the pivot bolt? Or a circlip?

It's the same C-clip or circlip the 919 has. No, literally, same one.

This is how easy the brake pedal comes off after you've disconnected it from the master cylinder and removed the C-clip/circlip that holds it onto the pivot. Or the C-clip and washer have disappeared - which is what happened to me.
