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

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.

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.
