SOURCE: replace rear brake pads

Remove right saddlebag, pull the two caliper mounting bolts and remove the caliper. Do not open bleeder or disconnect line. You will need to push a large screwdriver between the old pads before removing them in order to push the pucks back into the caliper or the new pads will not spread enough to reinstall. Then pull the two smaller bolts from the caliper and the pads will fall out. The pads are different for inside and outside, so pay attention, and remember, after reinstalling, before riding, be sure to pump brake pedal, and it may take a few stops before brakes stop as effectively as before.

SOURCE: How do I change the front and rear brakes on a

Not too hard - Undo the two bolts on the caliper and then seperate the caliper and pull the old ones out. Insert the new ones and put the bolts back in to hold the caliper back together and then install them back on the bike with the two retaining bolts. Use a bit of lock tight (Blue) on the threads. Warning do not let anyone apply pressure on the brakes while you have them off the bike or you will have a mess and/or a problem.

SOURCE: HOW TO CHANGE REAR BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH ON A HARLEY

To change the switch, first unplug the wires at the switch. Screw the old switch out and install the new switch into the tee connector. Do not depress either brake lever while the switch is out. Tighten the switch and reconnect the wires.

Usually you don't have to bleed any air out of the brake system but check the rear brakes for proper operaion. If the rear brake pedal goes too far down, bleed the brakes at the rear caliper. Make sure you don't run the rear brake master cylinder dry while bleeding the rear brake. Use only the approved type of brake fluid, do not mix the different types of fluid. Make sure the rear brakes are working properly before riding the bike.

SOURCE: Want to replace rear brake pads 1995 Harley Fat boy

Replacing the pads on your Fat Boy is not difficult but you need to pay close attention to the way things are put together as you take it apart. Particularly the little steel pad retainers and the anti-rattle spring. These parts are made and go together in such a way that it's very hard to describe how they go in.

To remove the pads, take the two caliper retaining bolts out of the disc brake caliper. These are usually Torx head bolts. Once you get the bolts out, the caliper simply slides to the front and off of the pads. You'll need a way to push the piston back into the caliper so it will go down onto the new pads. I usually do this with a large pair of slip joint pliers. Make sure you put a rag or something on your calipers so you don't damage the piston or the paint.

Now, look at the way the pads, the little steel pieces at each end of the pads and the anti-rattle spring are in the caliper support bracket. Remove the old pads and parts and install the new pads and parts in the same way. Make sure you put the fiber face of the pad TOWARDS THE ROTOR. Don't laugh, I've lots of people put them in backwards, especially on the back side of the rotor.

Now, carefully slide the caliper back down over the pads taking care not to knock the pads out of there positions. I put a little Loctite 242 (med. strength blue) on the threads of the caliper retainer bolts and reinstall them. Torque them to about 25 foot pounds.
Check the brake fluid level in the rear master cylinder and slowly "pump" the rear brake pedal until the rear brake feels firm. Wait a few minutes and mash the brake pedal one time to the bottom. If it goes down to lower point and then on the next "pump" is higher, you probably need to bleed air from the system.

Open the bleeder valve on the caliper, press the rear brake pedal to the bottom and hold it there, close the bleed valve, and then release the brake pedal. Continue to do this until all the air is out of the system and the rear brake pedal feels firm on the first time it's depressed. While doing this, never allow the rear brake fluid reserviour to run out of fluid. If it does, you'll have to start all over with the bleeding process. Use only DOT 5 brake fluid. DOT 5 and DOT 3 or 4 are NOT compatible and will not mix. If they are mixed, it will cause you a lot of trouble in the future.

Test the brakes before you ride the bike and then again when you first ride the bike at a very low speed. Failure to do this job properly can cause serious injury or death. Brakes must operate properly. Good Luck!

I have no brake light on my 1989 Harley Electra glide any help


On the 103 Police interceptor the suspects are:
1. Rear bulb
2. Front brake sensor
3. Rear brake switch
4. Low brake fluid
5. None of the above
Consult repair manual or see a dealer.

Where is rear brake fluid reservoir needs diagram


Well, you failed to give a model year, so here's a guess.

UNLESS it's a remote reservoir, it's inboard of the rear brake pedal arm:

On idea that comes to mind id it seems Harley has been having a problem with the rear brake light switch leaking, causing exactly what you describe, plus sometime fluid sprayed under pressure and smoking when sprayed on hot engine parts.

On the National Government recall site, there are several complaints about this:

98 harley davidson rear brake assembly for a fat boy


The rear brake system consist of a rear brake master cylinder, a metal line that has a tee in it for the rear brake switch, a rubber brake hose and a rear caliper.

I'm not sure what you are wanting to know. The rear brake caliper is held into the rear caliper bracket by two bolts. Remove the bolts and the rear caliper will lift off of the caliper bracket. With the brake caliper off the bracket, notice the position of the pads and especially the stainless steel anti-rattle clips. When you replace the pads and clips, make sure you get them in correctly.

Now, you'll have to compress the piston back into the caliper. To do this use either a large pair of slip joint pliers or a large C-clamp. Use a rag or something to protect the paint on your caliper. Carefully slid the caliper back down over the pads while not disturbing them. Install the two bolts and torque them to 25 foot pounds.

You brake systems, both the front and the rear, take type DOT 5 brake fluid as best as I can remember. Harley has changed the type of brake fluid but I cannot keep up with the year model. It should tell you on the tops of the master cylinder.

Extreme care must be taken whenever working on brakes. Make sure they work properly. Failure to test the brakes for proper operation prior to riding the bike can result in sever injury or death.
