Damn man that's a great looking ride - that exhaust looks killer. 

I had a similar problem on my KLR - no matter what I did I could not get an pressure in the rear brake.  I rebuilt the master cylinder but after forever long I realized I fitted the cupped washer on the piston in the MC the wrong way round.  After taking it all apart a hundred times I finally spotted this mistake - flipped the washer the correct way round, rebuilt everything and it worked just fine. 

Did you rebuild the MC or is it brand new?  Might the cupped washer be your culprit?
