Question about 1993 Harley Davidson XLH Sportster 883 Deluxe

Rear Brake recall

Hey all, I finally got my rims powder coated... semi gloss black. They look pretty sick. Nice to get it done given I have been daydreaming about making it happen for the past few months. However, now my rear brake does not work. The guys at the shop said that Harley issued a recall for the '06 883 rear brake. Any word on this? Is this accurate? I want to believe it is but given the brakes worked fine before I brought it to them I have a feeling they may be covering up their poor work. Rims look great... but ummm.. yeah. I'm surprised this happened given it was a custom bike shop. Hopefully they are correct about the recall and they found a real brake problem. Thanks in advance for any help.

Remove rear wheel from yamaha 650 v star


The final drive has a spline shaft. Raise the rear wheel off the ground , loosen the rear axle nut, take out the axle bolt, knock out the spacer , unbolt the rear brake caliper and hang it so you do not stress the brake hose ( unhook the brake rod and unbolt the stabilizer rod for drum brakes) , grab the wheel, and slide it sideways away from the final drive. The wheel should slide right off the spline of the final drive and roll out the back under the fender. If the wheel won't slide past the final drive let the air out of the tire. Be sure to coat the spline of the final drive with moly60 paste from your local Honda dealer when reassembling.

I m needing to replace the rear brakes on my 94 VT1100 is this doable for this semi experienced wrench twister?


It is actually pretty darn easy. The hardest part is securing the motorcycle with the rear wheel off the ground. Once you take the axle nut off , pull the axle out , knock out the spacer, take the nut off the brake actuator, You should be able to grab the wheel and slide it sideways off of the final drive spline. Now you should be able to roll the wheel out the back enough to take the brake panel off. If you want to pull the wheel out completely , you may have to let the air out of the tire to squeeze it past the final drive. Remember to regrease the final drive spline with Moly60 paste available at your local Honda dealer before you reinstall the wheel.

Why does the paint peel off of my valve covers on my 2004 bmw gs adventure i only have 5000 miles. i am the first owner and i dont ride it that hard.


Problem with alloys they have a hard time excepting paint. You need a good acid etch then primer and top coat. FinishMaster stores carry all of the stuff u need. Upol has great acid etch and primers, any good semi gloss paint over top will work

I need the paint codes for my 2006 V star 650 custom


go to www.colorrite.com and look up your exact motorcycle. Sounds like you have a midnight V star? The gloss black is called Raven and the matte finish i'm unsure of. i work for a Yamaha dealer and we always recommend Color Rite. Good luck.
