Its not your pads min thickness is 0.04..you have air in the lines or a loose fitting. You really need a vacmum suction device to bleed harley brakes not the old auto turn the nut pump the valve routine. Take it to a shop and have it done will only take about 15 min. Maybe someone prior to you mixed dot 4 and dot 5 maybe it fluid just needs to be replaced. but its not your pads the brake fluid makes up for the pad thickness.

Sounds like one of two things(assuming your batery is healthy), regulator is on its way out or/and check the supply cable going into/out of the unit, also check the earth lead. Best way to check is using a multimeter, check voltage on idle should be between 13.5 &14.5 v, turn on lights it will drop momentarily before rising again. Rev the engine and voltage should start to rise again, if not regulator is suspect.good luck

Testimonial: "thank you very much sir. i thought it might be the brushes on the alternator. will check as you suggested. regards. kevin"
sounds like you need to look at the carbs there not getting a good fule flow to them,,,,check this first,,you need to adjust both carbs to open the same amount and this can only be done on the throtle cable's at the carb,,,if your bike feels a bit lower on power than your palls,,do a compreshion test on both bikes,,if his has more compreshion than yours thats why he can wip you on hills!

Handlebars can be adjusted up and down, but I know of no way to adjust bars forward and back. I would check the levelness of the forks just to make sure that the motorcycle has not been in a front end collision.
