Take it back to the dealership. There is nothing to be tightened. The seals need to be replaced and TC Ridley can do it.

SOURCE: Sticking Rear Brake

Hi Alanmarshall,

I guess the rear brakes system of your bike must be mechanical.
Remove the rear adjusting nut on the brake rod and thn try it , the wheel should rotate freely.
If no, thn theres a problem in the drum and the linnings.. you will hve to remove the back wheel and examine.
If after removing the adjusting nut at the rear rod it moves freely thn theres a problem frm the rod to the brake pedal.
Or it may have been tht the adjustment was too tight without a free play .

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: front brake lever spongy,not operating brake

Gravity bleed front brake. no lever pumping. Looden cap on master cylinder, front wheen straight ahead, open bleeder and watch for air being expelled. When only fluid is coming out, close bleeder. Expect the front pads totake a few miles to seat, They will improve as they wear in. Good Luck / be safe.

Eychange brake pads on a 2012 wide glide harley


Rear Brake Caliper
For FLD Models remove the right saddlebag.
For ABS equipped Models remove the cable strap securing the wheel speed sensor cable to the rear brake hose at the caliper.
Loosen the brake fluid reservoir cap to allow air to escape and help prevent contamination and to help prevent brake fluid from squirting out of the reservoir if the pistons are retracted too much or too quickly and as the pistons are pushed back into the caliper, fluid level may rise above the available space and fluid may have to be removed to allow for this.

THEN loosen, but do not remove the metric pad pin, remove the mounting bolt and slider pin, pull the rear caliper away from the brake disc, remove the brake pad pin and the brake pads. THEN using the old brake pad and a C-clamp, retract the pistons fully into the caliper, inspect the pad pin for grooving and wear, measure the pad pin diameter in an unworn area and then in the area of any visible grooving or wear and if wear is more than 0.015 in. (0.38 mm), replace the worn pin. THEN inspect the torque clip and replace it if it is worn or damaged, inspect the anti-rattle spring and replace it if it is worn or damaged. THEN install new brake pads and the brake pad pin noting that the tab must engage the clip in the caliper housing. THEN tighten the pad pin to 80-120 in-lbs (9.0-13.6 Nm). THEN re-install the caliper the mounting bolt and slider pin and tighten to 16-20 ft-lbs (21.7-27.1 Nm). If ABS equipped next secure the wheel speed sensor cable to the rear brake hose with a cable strap near the caliper. THEN pump the brake pedal to move the pistons out until both brake pads contact the rotor, check the brake fluid level in master cylinder and adjust the fluid to the proper
level if necessary using DOT 4 BRAKE FLUID, install the master cylinder reservoir cap and tighten the reservoir cap screws to 6-8 in-lbs (0.7-0.9 Nm). For FLD Models install right saddlebag. Test Brakes. If on the road test of the ride the motorcycle the brakes feel spongy then properly bleed the system until you get a hard pedal and avoid making hard stops for the first 100 miles (160 km) to allow the new pads to become conditioned to the brake discs.


Front Brake Caliper
First remove the front master cylinder reservoir cap because as the pistons are pushed back into the caliper the fluid level may rise above the recommended 1/8-3/8 in (3.2-9.5 mm) below the gasket surface and fluid may need to be removed
to allow for this. THEN loosen, but do not remove the metric brake pad pin/bridge bolt, remove both metric caliper mounting bolts, detach the caliper from the front forks and the brake disc, pry the brake pads back to force all four caliper pistons fully into their bores. Note that the brake pads have tabs that are clipped onto the pad springs so you will need to disengage the tabs from the pad springs as you remove the pads. THEN with the pistons retracted remove the pad pin/bridge bolt
and remove brake pads, inspect the pin/bridge bolt for grooving and wear and measure the pad pin diameter in an unworn area, and then in any area of visible grooving or wear and if there is wear greater than 0.015 in. (0.38 mm) replace the pad pin/bridge bolt, verify that the pad spring tabs on the brake pad engages the pad springs in the pistons. THEN install newpads into the caliper with the directional facing down when the caliper is installed to avoid possible bake noise if the tabs are not so oriented down.

If ABS equipped, follow instructions and procedures inAppendix C.
THEN loosely install the center pad pin/bridge bolt, attach the caliper to the front fork placing it over the brake disc with the bleeder valve facing upward, loosely install the long metric mounting bolt into the upper hole on the fork leg, install the short metric mounting bolt into the lower hole on fork leg and tighten it to 28-38 ftlbs (38.0-51.5 Nm) and final tighten the top mounting bolt to 28-38 ft-lbs (38.0-51.5 Nm), final tighten the center pad pin/bridge bolt to 15-16 ft-lbs (20.3-22.6 Nm) and then pump brake hand lever to move the pistons fully out into contact with the brake pads and verify the piston location against the pads. If the front wheel is off the ground, rotate the wheel to check for excessive brake pad drag, check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder and if necessary fill it to the proper level using only D.O.T. 4 BRAKE FLUID, install the master cylinder reservoir cap and tighten the reservoir cap screws to 12-15 in-lbs (1.4-1.7 Nm) and then test the operation of the brake system and turn the ignition switch ON and pump the brake hand lever to ensure proper operation of the brake lamp.
If on the road test of the ride the motorcycle the brakes feel spongy then properly bleed the system until you get a hard pedal and avoid making hard stops for the first 100 miles (160 km) to allow the new pads to become conditioned to the brake discs.

Change front brake pads, 2002 FXD


For 2002 DYNA to replace front brake pads FIRST remove the front master cylinder reservoir cap because as the pistons are pushed back into the caliper the fluid level may rise and you will need to see this and may have to remove some excess fluid, the3n loosen but do not remove both (12 pt/0.25 in.) pad pins, remove both 10 mm caliper mounting bolts, detach and remove the caliper from the front forks and brake disc, pry the pads back to force all four caliper pistons fully into their bores, with the pistons retracted, remove the pad pins and brake pads. The front left, front right (if present as not present on all motorcycles) and the rear brake calipers use the same exact brake pad set. On the right side of the vehicle, the pad with the two tabs installs on the inboard side of the caliper and on the left side the pad with the two tabs installs on the outboard side of the caliper. Install new brakepads into caliper with the curved portion of the pad facing the rear of the motorcycle, loosely install the pad pins until you hear an audible click, attach the caliper to the front fork, on models with dual front calipers check the alignment of the brake discs to the calipers. Loosen the axle pinch bolt nuts, tighten the axle nut to the proper torque, insert a 7/16 in. drill bit through the hole in the axle as far as it will go so that the contact point will have the edge of the drill bit touching the edge of the fork leg, place the caliper over the brake disc with the bleeder valve facing upwards, loosely install the long 12 pt/10 mm mounting bolt into the top hole on the fork leg, install the short 12 pt/10 mm mounting bolt into the bottom hole on the fork leg, tighten the bottom mounting bolt to 28-38 ft-lbs (38.51.5 Nm), final tighten the top mounting bolt to 28-38 ft-lbs (38.51.5 Nm), final tighten both pad pins to 180-200 in-lbs (20.3-22.6 Nm)., on models with dual front calipers, tighten the pinch bolt nuts while holding the slider against the 7/16 drill bit if necessary, remove the drill bit, pump the brake hand lever to move the pistons out until they contact both brake pads, verify the piston location against the pads and if the front wheel is off the ground, rotate it to check for excessive brake pad drag, check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder and fill it to the proper level if necessary using D.O.T. 5 SILICONE BRAKE FLUID, install the master cylinder reservoir cap and tighten its cap screws to 6-8 in-lbs (0.7-0.9 Nm), turn ignition switch ON pump the brake hand lever to verify operation of the brake lamp, test the brakes, test ride the motorcycle and if the brakes feel soft or spongy, bleed the system until you get a firm/hard brake lever and avoid making hard stops for the first 100 miles (160 km) to allow the new brake pads to become conditioned to the brake disc(s).

How do i change rear brakes pads on a 2002 hd fxdwg ?


DO NOT REMOVE THE WHEEL AND DO NOT SPLIT THE CALIPER.

After servicing the brakes in any way and before moving the motorcycle always pump the brakes to build brake system pressure and move the pistons and pads out against the brake rotor.

First remove the rear master cylinder reservoir cap and check the fluid level because as the pistons are pushed back into the caliper the fluid level will rise and you do not want it to overflow the reservoir and spill out and to avoid this you must remove sufficient fluid.
Second, loosen, but do not remove, both pad pins with a 12 point .025 inch socket wrench.
Thirdly pry the inside pad back using steady pressure and a sturdy scraper or large screw driver or similar suitable tool, prying between the pad and the brake disc in order to push the caliper pistons back into their bores.
Fourthly, once the pistons have been fully retracted into their bores, pull the pad pins out part way only until the inside pads drop free.Do not completely pull the pad pins out from the caliper at this time because completely removing the pad pins at this time will cause you unnecessary difficulty during re-assembly. ALSO carefully note and remember each pad's original orientation for so you can put the new pads into the correct position and orientation in the caliper. Note that the front left, and the front right (if the front right is present) and all of the rear brake calipers use the same exact brake pad set. Install the pad with two tabs on the inboard side of the rear caliper.
Fifthly install the new inside brake pad using the same orientation as the pad previously removed (with the curved portion of the pad facing the rear of the motorcycle.
Sixthly install the pad pins until the pins snap into place with an audible click but do not fully tighten them at this time.
Next pump the brake pedal lever to move the inside pistons out until they contact the inside brake pads and then pry the outside pad back to push the caliper pistons back into their bores and verify that the inside pads have been captured between the brake disc and the pistons. At this point you can completely remove the pad pins to free the outside brake pad. Again note the pad's original orientation for replacement purpose and orientation
.While the pad pins are out inspect them for grooving and wear and measure the pin diameter in an unworn area, and then in the area of any grooving or wear, and if wear is more than 0.015 in. (0.38mm), replace both pins.
THEN install the new outside brake pad using the same orientation as the pad previously removed and if the inside pad moved during the previous step, reinstall it with the curved portion of the pad facing the rear of motorcycle.
THEN install both pad pins through holes in the inner and outer brake pads and tighten them to 180-200 in-lbs which is (20.3-22.6 Nm).
THEN pump the brake pedal to move the pistons out until they contact both of the brake pads and verify the correct piston location against the pads.
THEN check the brake fluid level in master cylinder and fill it up to the correct level if necessary using ONLY D.O.T. 5 SILICONE BRAKE, install the master cylinder reservoir cap and tighten the reservoir cap screws to 6-8
in-lbswhich is (0.7-0.9 Nm).
WHEN the bike is completely back together test the brakes at low speed in a safe area and also confirm that the brake light works properly and if the brakes feel at all spongy bleed them properly until a hard not spongy brake pedal is obtained. AND avoid making hard stops for the first 100 miles (160 km) to allow the new pads to condition to the brake rotors.

Want to change front brake pads , like to see a pictire of the font brakes ?


Look at you bike front wheels, make sure your bike is sitting on a level ground and the steering is straight.. You will see 2 brake calipers gripping your brake disk that is your brke pads. In the middle of the caliper body there should be a Hex key bolt, use appropriate key to remove the bolt of the caliper, remove the pad, on installing new pads make sure you have open your master cylinder reservoir and removed at least half of the oil so when you compresses the caliper piston the oil doesnot overflow out.
Put in your new pads, lock them with the Hex bolt and now see how much oil is in the reservoir, if needed, top up to make it full enough. Press your hand brake while hand spinning the front wheel to test the pad gripping position, if it grabs immediately. Your job is complete.
Good enough?

HOW DO U TAKE FRONT TIRE OFF? ALSO, HOW DO U CHANGE FRONT A BACK BRAKES AND PADS IF ID WANT TO DO THEM MYSELF?? THANK YOU ITS A 1999 DYNA WIDEGLIDE


To remove front tire. Raise the bike off the ground so that the front tire is just barely on the ground. Remove the large nut on the axle and loosen the two bolts on the axle clamp on the other side of the wheel. Drive the axle out. Now, roll the front tire out from under the front fender being watchful of any spacers and speedo drives that are with the front wheel. Remember which side any spacer go and mark them. Reassembly is virtually the reverse except that you may have to use a screwdriver to spread the front brake pads. Make sure you get the speedometer drive tang in the hole on the front disc if you have a mechanical speedo drive.

To change the rear brake pads, remove the two bolts that hold the rear caliper onto the caliper support bracket. Carefully lift the caliper off the bracket. Notice how the rear pads and the anti-rattle clips are positoned on the caliper support bracket. Replace old parts with new parts.

You'll need to depress the brake piston back into the caliper in order to get the caliper back on over the new pads. Use a large C-clamp or pair of slip joint pliers to depress piston back into the caliper. Use a rag or something to prevent damaging the paint on your caliper. Reinstall the caliper down over the new pads being careful not to disturb them. Replace the two bolts and torque them to 25 foot pounds. Pump the brakes back up to a full pedal by pumping the rear brake pedal up and down slowly. Check for proper operation of the brakes. Failure to properly service the brakes can cause serious injury or death.

Is it possible to change rear brake pads without removing exhaust and rear wheel


Not really. The rear-brake pads rotate inside the rear-wheel drum. Once you knock out the rear-axle bolt, you then bend-out the rear wheel. That way you could avoid having to take out the exhaust.
If you have to lay the bike down on its side to facilate the wheel removal, do so.

How do i replace my brake pads on a 1991 dr350


You didn't specify front or rear so I will hit both.
Start with the front. Refer to this diagram:
http://216.37.204.203/Suzuki_OEM/SuzukiDB.asp?Type=13&A=91&B=43
Unbolt bracket 13 from the fork leg, then remove the 2 brake pad retaining pins #12. The brake pads can then be removed. You will have to compress the spring #5 when putting the pads back in to be able to reinstall the pins #12.
On the rear, refer to this page:
http://216.37.204.203/Suzuki_OEM/SuzukiDB.asp?Type=13&A=91&B=49
You have one of two choices, either remove the rear wheel so you can drop the pads out by removing the brake pad retaining pins #13 or unscrew #8 from the caliper bracket then remove the caliper.
