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.

SOURCE: need instructions on removing back tire on Harley

I worked as a PDI @ riders in b'ham for a while and had to change a few rear wheels, the 1st thing is to deflate the tire then use a coat hanger wire that is strait. Place the wire @ the center of the axel bolt head and then following the swing arm up to the center of the swing arm bolt head, then use a zip tie to mark the coat hanger. Then move to the other side and check to seeif they are the same . They should be. Then move to the disc break and remove the calliper, do not remove the break line. Once you do this you can loosen the axel nut. I assume you have the back tire off the ground, so now you can move the wheel to the front and remove the drive belt. now you can remove the axel and drop the wheel down and out . do this opposit to put it back on remember to use your coat hanger to reset your tension on the drive belt , hope this was helpfull.

SOURCE: assy of starter clutch on 2003 Harley Davidson

The starter on a late model Harley is a typical Nippondenso gear reduction type starter. They are all basically the same except for size.
To replace the starter clutch inside the starter assembly requires disassembly of the starter assembly.

I you will contact me directly, I will scan the procedure and drawings out of a service manual for you.

I just had new tires installed on my 99 sportster 883. Went riding for 2 and half hours , came home was going to leave again and the rear brakes were locked up i took the caliper apart and knocked off...


Normally, just having a tire put on should not effect your brakes in any manner. However, I do not know what the people that changed the tire did. Usually when a brake caliper locks up, it's caused by air in the system. They may have taken the brake line loose from the caliper but it was not necessary and there's no way to prove it. Also, there is a small hole in the bottom of the master cylinder that allows the pressure to bleed off the caliper. If this hole is blocked, it will not allow all the pressure to bleed off properly. Another thing that could cause it is the rear rubber brake hose. If the people that changed the rear tire allowed the this rubber line to bend too sharply, it could have damaged the inner lining of the brake line. This will allow the brakes to be applied due to the high pressure but restrict the bleeding off of the pressure. I've seen this many times and this is my best guess as to the problem, damaged rubber brake line.

Good Luck
Steve
