My front disk brake was hot. When i parked my bike in front of my house I heard that dissipating heat ticking that would normally be associated with a hot engine only it was my front disk. This was just from everyday ride through town. I never noticed if car rotors got hot so I have to ask if its normal for a bike rotor to heat up after some use? It was too hot to feel with your hand but not glowing red or smoking. Nor did it give the aroma of toasted brakes.It will generate heat normally. Lift the front end and spin the wheel to see if your pads are dragging.,,,

Usually when the brake light stays on, it\'s the front brake switch that is bad.

It usually gets damaged if the front master cylinder is installed incorrectly, breaking off the little bit that works off the brake lever.

A quick test is to unsolder the switch, and touch/untouch the two wires and see if the brake light functions (goes off/on).

Because the pistons were previously seized into the caliper, you would not have noticed if you had any free play on the rear pedal, my thoughts are now you have freed the pistons off, a mall addjusted pedal has caused the brake to bind hence the pads have been making contact with the disc and got hot, next the heat causes the system to hydrallic and then the brake is applied without the use of the opperator

Headlights, taillights not brake lights are working...bulbs are fine


I assume that you have removed the seat and checked that all the harness wires are plugged in correctly. There are two brake light switches one on the handle bars and one on the foot pedal. It is extremely rare that they both stop working at the same time. Unless one switch has been broken for a while and you did not notice the brake light was not working until the second switch went out. It sounds like you have a common problem any older light bulb socket can have. Remove the tail light lens and take out the bulb. Look carefully at the contact plate. If it has gotten too hot one of the contacts may have sunken into the plate and no longer touches the contact on the bulb. This happens a lot. You can take a socket plate out of any old dual filament light socket by pushing on one side,cocking it at an angle, and pulling it out with the wires attached. Install the good plate in your socket by feeding the wires through the spring and out the wire holes. Cut and solder the your old wires onto the wires on the new socket plate minding which wire is the running light and which wire is the stop light. If you make a make a mistake it is not hard to remedy , either switch the wires (resolder) or plug them into the wrong colors. The dim filament is the tail light and the bright filament is the stop light.

04 ElectraGlide standard new brake pads rub on rotor all the time


nothing to worry about unless it's causing some serious drag. it's probably that you never noticed that your brakes made some noise in the past. could just be the pads you had installed. every bike i've noticed has the pads running on the rotors, with new pads you notice the sound more until they wear in a little.

Lost oil


Sounds like your oil got hot eh? Is your bike water-colled? If so, better flush out that system and make sure its working properly.

That's a tricky one! They are normally hydraulically-activated swiches if my LM2 3 5 and 1100 Sport are anything to go by. Do you have a faulty hydraulic switch? Disconnect one at a time - that may be the answer.,,,
