It aint rocket science
Yup I messed up good. Maybe be the treatments are goin to my brain.
I cleaned the calipers and used the correct lube on the pins. I just saw your post...I'd try bleeding the lines. Make sure you get all fresh fluid and it's the correct type of fluid. DOT 4 I think but check the manual and the cap. Brake fluid is cheap and an easy thing to try before replacing more components. Also double check the caliper pistons are clean, pin is clean and lubed. The pulsing does suggest the rotor is warped but you might have some binding of some component which is causing the brake to engage incorrectly and giving you a weird sensation. I'd verify what you have is correct before getting new parts. You'll have to buy plenty of new parts 😉.
Seems Honda thinks it matters.Someone show me where it really matters.
I know instructions say blah blah blah but being that I have been bleeding brakes for 1/2 a century I say it makes no difference whatever.Seems Honda thinks it matters.

It seems like anytime I read instructions for bleeding, the manufacturer says to bleed the caliper farthest from the master, first, due to the longer hose.
On my Hyundai, their instructions are a little odd, like left rear, then right front, then right rear, but I figure they must have a reason.
Try a zip-tie on the end of the bleeder line.. Tighten it down before you put it on the bleeder nipple, put the hose on, then slide the tie over the host/nipple connection....Great news! I'm not in love with the stopping power of mine but the foot brake stops better than the hand brake (since it operates 2 calipers). It's a big old bike and feels like it stops slower and with more squeezing of brakes than my Triumph.
I'd keep bleeding the rear. My buddy had one of those mighty vacs and we had to use a lot of Teflon tap and pinch the hose on the nipple to keep it from bubbling. So make sure the hose isn't leaking right at the nipple. Also, the recommended sequence is a to bleed the rear brake first and then front. Trace the hoses to make sure you are bleeding the correct caliper in the front. If that doesn't work, report back. The guys here will have more advice.
I have a dial indicator, not sure if I have a secure way to attach it to the lower sliders. I'm busy for the next two days, but I'll come up with something. When I had them off, I could have tried laying them on the granite counter top and used a .002 feeler gauge. Thanks for the suggestion, if they're flat, that would rule out warpage causing the pulsing.what is your run out on the rotors
