Question about Harley Davidson FLHX Street Glide Motorcycles
Follow the harness from the taillight to where it plugs into the main harness. The wires are usually routed along the underside of the fender and exit somwhere near the seat to plug into the main harness. There should be 3 wires that go to the taillight bulb. One is ground, one is tail light on constantly with the headlight, the other is the brakelight wire. A simple test light probe would be the tool of choice to locate these wires. tap neatly with proper solder joints into the brakelight and ground for brakelight function only on the fender side of the connector for ease of fender removal in the future. many people will use a device called a schotchlock for this type of install however it is known to cause problems with age.

it's pretty straight forward. remove saddle bag, remove the 2 allen bolts that hold the caliper to bracket slide caliper up off of disc. then remove the small 3/16 allen bolt this is the pad pin that hold the pad. before you remove the pads turn caliper upside down and with a large screwdriver put it betweenthe old pads and trist it to push the piston back in the caliper this will give you room for the new pads. then just lift the old pads out and put in the new and reinstall the pad pin and caliper back on bracket install the 2 bolts removed first and tighten good. if you need any more help just ask.

Try loosening the bolts holding the front master cylinder on the handlebars. Slide the master cylinder down as close as possible to the right handlebar switch housing. If this doesn't work, the front brake light switch is probably bad and needs to be replaced in the right switch housing.

SOURCE: how do you replace the
Remove any saddlebags or anything that's in the way of accessing the brake caliper. Remove the two bolts that hold the caliper into the caliper bracket. Lift the caliper off of the bracket.
Note the way the pads and the anti-rattle stuff is installed into the caliper bracket. Remove the old parts and install the new parts.
Now, the piston has to be seated all the way back into the caliper. I used either a large C-clamp or a large pair of slip joint pliers to compress the piston back into the caliper. Use a couple pieces of thin wood or rags to protect the paint and finish on the caliper. Once the piston is all the way back into the caliper, carefully replace the caliper in the bracket without disturbing the pads. Replace the bolts and torque them to 25 foot pounds of torque.
Slowly pump the rear brake pedal until you have a full firm brake pedal. Test the brakes before you ride the bike. Failure to insure proper operation of the brake could result in serious injury or death.
