Question about 2004 Harley Davidson FXDL - FXDLI Dyna Low Rider
What tool is needed to remove the old pads and install new ones on the rear of my 2003FXDL?
You need a 12 point 1/4' socket, un-bolt and they should drop right out. Spread the pistons with some bent in half heavy cardboard so you don't mar the faces, then install the new ones.

Hi, you need a set of tork keys. (like allan keys but with more edges). Some dot 5 brake fluid a peice of small diameter hose for bleeding. When you remove the rear caliper be sure to note where all the shims are before you remove the clip and pads. Your new pads will come with new shims. Once you have removed the clip your pads will fall out. You will need to depress the piston in the caliper to insert the new pads and fit it back over the disc. You may need to loosen the bleed nipple with your piece of hose attached to it, to release some pressure. Once the caliper is back on the bike put a little bit of thread locker on the bolts and tighten them up. Remove the master cylender cover (behind the brake pedal). Put a little bit of brake fluid into a cup by gently pushing the brake pedal and letting the fluid bleed through the small hose I mentioned before. Once the end of the hose is under the fluid, carefully add new fluid to the master cylender while pressing the brake pedal. Once you have pumped all the old fluid out and your level is at the mark in the master cylender, you are finished. Put the top back on the master and test your brakes. Give them a good test at low speed in safe conditions.
