Hi m8, all the setting on the lever will do is adjust to your style of riding ,, not adjust the pads ,,sounds like the pistons on the calipers are not releasing wen the pressure is off, ,,ie brake pads are not goin back ,,if u r a every day rider ,,the salty conditions will cause seize ups,,best thing is wipp a caliper off the wheel,, dont touch the brake lines,, just undo the two caliper bolts, then undo the two screws onthe master cylinder,,reservoir,,lift off the cap, u will need some copper grease,and a small paint brush,, take the pads out, and smear some copper grease round the pistons, then prize them back in a bit,, dont push them in to far ,,just enuff, till grease to do its job,,by undoing the reservoir the air that may get pushed will be able to escape,,replace pads, and bolts, cheers

Hello, Never dealt with motorcycles, still if you are sure that there is no air in the brake liquid, check whether the braking disk/pads are not hooked or (irregularly) worn-out. If this is not the case, replace the braking mechanism (the cylinder which pushes the pads), if too expensive, clean the old one and reassemble with new rubber parts. Please let me know whether I was able to assist.

Front brake lever has little to no play... leaving front brake with too quick of a respone for stopping.

Technically, there is no adjustment for the brake lever,the effort required or the amont of "travel". You have a very responsive lever and if someone unqualified attempts to "fix" this phenomenom, I suspect that you'll be setting yourself up for trouble. Personally, I'd find an empty parking lot and practice, practice, practice as the front brake is responsible for 70% of all effective braking.

try using a line locker close to master cyclinder ,lever should go rock hard if it has no air in system,work line locker down lines to see if lever stays hard.
also check the lever travel to make sure that lever is pushing on master cyclinder plunger as a lot of after market levers dont have correct casting and have to travel in a long way before brakes work even when system is bled. also check to make sure calliper carriers are not bent and pads not sitting square on rotors.
hope this helps

How do i remove the front brake cable? im having a

Is it off the brake lever on the handle bar? If not shorten the outer cable by turning in the knurled adjuster at the back of the brake lever. This will make it easy to take the inner cable off the brake lever. Once that is off you can work on the hub and you should now be able to swing the inner cable round to slide it off the lever on the hub. If that is damaged it might be difficult to clear the cable and the end nipple, so you will need to open the gaps using a flat screwdriver as a lever. When you put it all back together it will help to lubricate the inner cable with some engine oil which you can run down the inner from the brake lever end. Moving the inner cable up and down helps the oil to travel down the cable.

How to adjust front brake lever on '06 hd road king?

This is by design. When you have new pads on the bike and a rotor within limits the lever has very limited travel before engaging.
As these parts wear the position of which the lever engages changes. Unless you know that at the last brake pad change the caliper was "centered" this could account for the travel and will result in premature wear on the components.

Possibly 2 problems m8.
If the brake-lever travel has increased then it either wasn't bled up properly or it's allowing air past the seals in the master-cylinder.
Try tying the lever back to the bar overnight to bring any air in the system up to the top (resevoir) and see if the brakes stay good, if not they'll need bleeding again.
Check for any leaks around all the banjo connections, up at the bars and down at the calipers, plus have a close inspection of the master-cylinder piston area for leaks.
The juddering might be down to a warped disc or two, get the front wheel off the ground and spin the wheel to check for this visually or with a stick and pointer.

Rear brakes don't work on 1996 goldwing

Yes the rear pedal operates the front RH disk as well.
When you bleed the brake do the front RH disk calliper first then the rear calliper.
Check that the pads are not beyond useful life and the not stuck.

Brake lever travel

Check the pads for wear, they might need replacement. You should also check brake fluid level. And last you can bleed the brakes.

Vibrating front end under braking indicates a warped rotor or stuck piston. However, your bike is new enough this should not be an issue. Has it been dropped before? Are you noticing odd wear marks on the rotor? It should be more noticable at high speeds though, so that seems a little odd to me. Can you get the front end up somehow and spin it freely, try to pinpoint exactly where the noise is coming from. Maybe check to see if something got stuck between the brake pads and the rotor? You'll need to remove the whole caliper to do it correctly, so make sure not to squeeze the lever if you do. Once you get it back on/reinstalled (just slips over the disk) then pump the lever a few times to restore pressure to the system, otherwise your brakes won't work the first time you try.
