I have a 2007 1800 Goldwing. I purchased used in 2017.It now has 70k miles and It rides like a dream. Last year I began to experience a low rear brake. I had to pump it 3 times to get it to hold.I Bled and that seemed to solve my issue for approx. 1000 miles and it returned. I took to the dealer and they replaced pads rotors and re bled. It did not need rotors but that is another story. 3 months later or approx. 2000 miles the low brake returned. I replaced the rear master cylinder bled and the brake stayed high and tight for approx. 1000 miles. Back to square 1 again. I recently rebled again making sure to do the dive on the front fork etc...The pedal came up and it was tight for 1 week. This past weekend we had mild temps and i wanted to pull her out and of course low pedal returned. When this occurs, I pump the brake 3 times and it comes right up until you come to the next stop...This has now frustrated me to no end and I'm looking for a solution. Please rescue coach Joe in Montclair NJ.

Get the low pedal and coast to a stop. Maybe you see what is moving when you pump it. Sounds like some piston is getting pushed back.

Have you tried bleeding per the manual as the brake is linked to the front. Just not the back brake.

There is a recall to replace the rear and the auxiliary master cylinders. Has that been done?
