Question about Motorcycles
I cant locate the front or rear switches
The front switch is a plunger type switch and is located inside the right handlebar control. When putting everything back together, be very careful or will pinch wires, causing additional problems!
Rear switch should be along the brake line, behing the brake pedal.Good luck!

there is 2 bolts on the caliper take them off and there are pad pins that need to be taken out.. inside the caliper there is a metal clip where the pad sits in.. put them in the same way they came out once you start its pretty self explainatory.. you should not have to blead them

Remove the two bolts that hold the rear brake caliper into the rear brake caliper support bracket. Lift off caliper. Notice how the pads and anti-vibration clips are positioned in the rear brake caliper support bracket. Install new pads and anti-rattle clips or springs.
Now, using a large C-clamp or a large pair of slip joint pliers, depress piston all the way back into the caliper. Carefully reposition the caliper back on the rear brake caliper support bracket without disturbing the pads or clips. Install the two bolts and torque to 25 foot pounds of torque. Slowly depress and release the rear brake pedal until a good firm pedal is obtained. Check the brakes for proper operation prior to riding the bike. Failure to properly service the brakes can cause sever injury or death.

Trace the metal line coming from the rear master cylinder going to the rear caliper. You'll come to a Tee fitting with an electrical pressure switch in it. Replace that switch and see if this helps.

You must take the two bolts out that holds the caliper to the caliper bracket. Lift the caliper off the bracket and set it aside. Carefully examine the pads and the anti-rattle spring that is in the caliper bracket. Take the old parts out and install the new parts exactly like the old ones were in there. Make sure you put the fiber side of the brake pads towards the rotor.
Now, you must press the piston back into the caliper in order to get it over the new pads. I use either a large C-clamp or a pair of slip joint pliers to force the piston back into it's bore completely. Once you have this done, carefully place the caliper back over the pads and onto the bracket without disturbing the pads.
Now, slowly depress the rear brake pedal repeatedly until you get a full firm brake pedal. Do not ride the bike until you get a good brake pedal and test the brakes.
