here's the question; on my GL1100a the rear brake pedal sticks. I mean sticks bad I literally have to to use my toe to pull it up. There is no grease zert and everything installs from the inside (toward the tranny). Any one have any clue how I get some relief from this issue.
Thank You!

A fairly common happenstance. If you do a search you'll find lots of posts on this problem. The only cure is to remove the pedal, clean and regrease with good water resistant grease (I use boat trailer bearing grease) and reassemble. It's not all that hard to get the thing off if it hasn't frozen up completely. Disconnect the master cylinder push rod, remove the big cotter pin and washeron the inside end of the pivot. Then you can rotate lever up enough to easily disconnect the coil spring and push the pedal inward enough to get it off the pivot. Clean out the old crud and corrosion, relube and reinstall. You should be good for another ten or fifteen years before it needs to be done again.

Yup, mine stuck too. The pivot gets jammed with junk and needs cleaning or lube. I was lucky, it unstuck itself after a few applications.

Fixed mine Saturday AM. I had to remove the clutch cable. The pedal wouldn't clear otherwise. Some brake clean, scotch brite and emory paper made quick work of the crud. Some copper anti-seize make the pedal move like butter. Jay
