Vulcan 1600 brakes (or lack thereof)

Your problem is air in the system. If bleeding the system does not work, the most likely culprit is the master cylinder. A master cylinder can suck air in the back with little or no leakage. If you apply light pressure to the brake pedal and the pedal drifts slowly down and hard pressure gets your pedal back, then the master cylinder is definitely suspect. Calipers rarely suck in any air, as they move very little. I agree that since it is under warranty, have a certufied shop correct the problem. My new 1600 Vulcan has 550 miles on it and so far no mechanical problems.
