Remove the calipers, remove the pistons and seals and if all is in great condition replace seals and pistons, re-install, bleed brake system. OFTEN may be just as cheap to replace the calipers

SOURCE: setting the timing 2002 road king fuel injected

Your bike's timing can only be adjusted through an interface to your ECM like the Screamin Eagle Race Tuner. Have you made any changes to the exhaust or intake? Have you added and aftermarket item like a Power Commander? changes in these areas could account for the problem you are having. hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2002 road king horn wiring were due both leads connect to

I am assuming you mean what are the color of the wires that go to the horn. If so, the yellow/black is positive when the horn button is depressed and the black is ground. The wiring for the horn button is orange/white positive and yellow/black to horn. The orange/white wire gets 12vdc from the acc fuse.

If by "disassembling the calipers" you mean splitting them open, DO NOT do that.
You detach the caliper so that you can remove the pads and get at the piston, but then what you should do is to simply pop the piston out.
That can be done simply by pumping the brake pedal, using air pressure (with a rag to prevent the piston from flying around), or with a grease gun.
Then once the piston is out, you simply wire brush any corrosion off. If the piston is so pitted that it can not be made smooth and will leak, then it should be replaced.
If you wash them out with anything other than brake fluid, then be sure to blow out any residue with compressed air.
Use lots of brake assembly lube, and ensure the new dust seal is water tight. Bleeding the brakes will flush out any remaining dust.

SOURCE: replce o ring in front

To replace the O-ring in the calipers, Take the caipers off the bike. Put a piece of wood inside the calipers where the brake pads used to be. Now, using very low pressure air, blow the air into the hole where the brake hose came from. The air should push the piston out of it's bore. If it doesn't come out, increase the air pressure gradually until it does. CAUTION: BE VERY CAREFUL DOING THIS AS IT CAN BE DANGEROUS. If you use too much air pressure, the piston can be blown out violently. If your finger is in the way, serious injury will result. If you're not positive of what you're doing, take the calipers to an experienced mechanic and give him a few dollars to get the pistons out. Do not try to pull the pistons out with pliers as you'll only damage the piston. Now, you can push the pistons out with a grease gun but it will take nearly a tube of grease per caliper and you'll have a large mess to clean once the piston is out, but it's safe. Simply screw your grease gun into the hole where the hose came out and start pumping. The grease wil force the piston out but without the explosive force of the air.

Good Luck
Steve

Master cylinder 2003 road king


I would
1. Check brake pad thickness.
2. Check brake disk thickness.
3. Check and bleed the brakes, making sure you open and thighten all fittings in that system.
4. When you bleed the brakes, look for a good squirt when you hit the brakes with the top off.
5. If there isnt a squirt, rebuild the master cylinder.

I bet its one of those issues, but, do the easiest first.

How do you change the brakes on a 2008 road king classic


There are two long bolts (Torqx type bolts) that hold the rear caliper into it's bracket, Remove the two bolts and lift the caliper off the rear caliper bracket. Notice how the pads and the "anti-rattle clips" are positioned in the caliper bracket. Replace the pads and anti-rattle clips with new ones.

Now you'll need to get the piston pressed back into the caliper. Use a large C-clamp or a pair of slip joint pliers to do this with. Use a rag or something to keep from scratching your paint or scoring the piston. Once the piston is all the way back in it's bore, replace the caliper in it's bracket being careful not to disturn the pads. Pump the rear brake pedal a few times slowly until you build up pressure. Test the brakes before riding the bike. An improperly performed brake job can cause serious injury or death. Make sure everything is right before riding the bike.

2002 gsxr, bike sat for 3yrs. rear brake quit working. no pressure to peddle. unable to bleed if possible ? seems like a pressure problem in the master cylinder?


Sound like you've hit the nail on the head. Rebuild master cylinder with new seals, also rebuild rear caliper with new seals, check condition of pistons you may find that they also need replacing.

I have a 07 roadkind i just replaced the rear brakes and when i try to bleed the brakes i have brake fuild coming out of the caliper


If it is coming out from where the caliper halves meet then it sounds like the wrong bolts have been loosened & the seals have slipped on tightening
If its coming out from around the pistons then the caliper seals need replacing & poss. the pistons too
