SOURCE: HARLEY- 02 DYNA WIDE GLIDE

WD4ITY has no clue what he in talkjing about in regards to starting the bike or moving it has no effect on brakes loosing pressure. I for one have this EXACT same issue. I can bleed the brakes to where they are rock solid, and while sitting still the brakes are rock hard. The moment I move the back backwards or forwards even the slightest bit, the brakes loose all pressure and the handle moves to the grip. It's due to the front rotor being out of alignment or at an angle in comparison to the brake caliper. When you move the bike forward or reverse the rotor is pushing the pads apart causing your handle to have a no pressure effect since you must now squeeze it a few times to regain pressure. On my FXD this was caused by the front wheel not being spaced properly causing the forks to come in at the bottom causing a slight rotors out of angle effect. I did notice a starting effect where I would loose some pressure, but I accounted this to me sitting on bike, lifting it up straight which caused the rotor to push on pads which in turn made me thing starting caused the loose of pressure. Don't always believe what people type on the internew telling you that moving a bike has no effect when it in fact does and any Harley tech or sport bike tech for that matter, worth their salt should tell you this same thing.

SOURCE: new master cylinder and brake line on 2002 wide glide no brake preasure wheel turnes no brake preasure what next

First thing, is the bleeder valve on the caliper at the wheel in the high position?
If it's on the lower part of the caliper, air will be trapped above it.
Sometimes, a brake vacuum bleeder works better than the traditional way:

After bleeding all the air you can, leave it overnight with the pedal/lever (you didn't state if the front or rear brake) tywrapped in the ON position overnight.

IF it's the rear brake, make sure there's a slight amount of play before the rod to the pedal engages the master cylinder piston (if not, it won't allow the piston to fully return).

What will cause the front brakes to have a really loose handle and no brakes on front, rear works fine.


Hummm......first, check the fluid level in the master-cylender. If one or both fluid chambers is empty, you will have to bleed the brake system. If the master-cylender is full, get in the vehicle and pump the brakes several times. Check under the vehicle for fluid leaks. Then check all break lines and hoses. If you see nothing wrong, the master-cylender should be replaced. You may need to take the vehicle to a break shop to get this done. Tell the shop to check the ABS break computer. In GM vehicles, the ABS computers were bad about failing. The computer can usually just be disconnected.

No front brake preasure on 2002 wide glide


Sounds like the master cylinder is defective or you need to bleed the system. Did you possibly add in the wrong type of brake fluid and destroy all rubber components in the sytem???

2001 hd dyna wide glide brake light does not come on when brakes are applied , tail light works,bulb is ok , is it the brake sensor ,where is it located and what does it look like thanx


Your Wide Glide has two brake light switches. One is in the right handlebar switch housing and operated by a tang on the front brake lever. If it's not working you probably have a bad switch up there as well. The rear brake switch is underneath the bike. Find the metal line coming out of the rear brake master cylinder. Follow this line back towards the rear brake. You should find a "tee" fitting with a small switch screwed into it. It'll have two wire plugs with about four wires on it unless they've changed something. You'll know it when you see it. Replace this switch first. Since the front brake light works off this switch as well, it may fix the front brake light switch as well. If not, you'll have to take the right handlebar switch housing apart to get to the front switch.

Good Luck
Steve
