SOURCE: replace rear brake pads
Remove right saddlebag, pull the two caliper mounting bolts and remove the caliper. Do not open bleeder or disconnect line. You will need to push a large screwdriver between the old pads before removing them in order to push the pucks back into the caliper or the new pads will not spread enough to reinstall. Then pull the two smaller bolts from the caliper and the pads will fall out. The pads are different for inside and outside, so pay attention, and remember, after reinstalling, before riding, be sure to pump brake pedal, and it may take a few stops before brakes stop as effectively as before.

there is 2 bolts on the caliper take them off and there are pad pins that need to be taken out.. inside the caliper there is a metal clip where the pad sits in.. put them in the same way they came out once you start its pretty self explainatory.. you should not have to blead them

What you describe is normal for a Harley. It's aggravating as hell, but short of swapping the brake system it's an issue you learn to ignore.

If you'll look at the caliper, you'll see two bolts that hold the caliper into the caliper bracket. Usually they take Torx wrenches to remove them. Take these two bolts out and lift the caliper.
Notice the way the pads and any anti-rattle hardware is positioned in the caliper bracket. Replace the pads and the hardware.
Now you must press the piston back into the caliper. I use either a large C-clamp or a large pair of slip joint pliers to squeeze the piston back down into the bore completely. Use a rag or some thing pieces of wood to prevent damage to the caliper.
Now, replace the caliper over the pads without disturbing them and replace the screws. Torque them to 30-45 foot pounds.
