Trying to adjust my rear breaks. Their not lighting soon enough when I push on my rear break peddle, only when I push down all the way.

I'm going to have to guess it needs bleeding. I'm not sure of the proper bleeding sequence on the 1800 since it has linked brakes.

The site below has the procedure:

All of that is fine, I was told to adjust it when I had her inspected. They showed me where to adjust it and I forgot is all.

I just reread your first statement.. CLOSELY .

you mean the Brake LIGHT switch adjustment.. not the rear brake adjustment !!.

that adjustment Honda has used since the 1960's... rear brake light switch.. screws up and down..

light switch, attached to a spring, attached to the brake petal..

item # 7.

I believe that might be a accurate translation chuck.....

Hydrolic brakes can not be adjusted but the brake pedal and the brake switch can.
