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: No spark on my Harley

How are you checking your spark? On the newer computer controlled engines, there is a "compression sensor". If you take the plugs out and try to check for spark like we used to do, you won't get a spark. Put your plugs back in and then use a set of test plugs to check your spark.

If you're still not getting a spark, check for voltage at the primary side of the coil.

Testimonial: "Thank you for the info. I didn't realize that you could test the spark the old way."

Everyone has their favorite spark plugs and oil. As for spark plugs, I like NGK plugs because I've had less problems with them than any other plug I've ever run.

As for oil, it depends on whether you're talking petroleum based or synthetic. Aftermarket petroleum based, I like RevTech. Aftermarket synthetic Mobil V-Twin.

If you have over 15000 miles I would change the spark plugs and clean the air breather for starters to see if that will help.

2008 harley street glide intermittent spark starts but wont start


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition or leaking.
3. Spark plug gap to close or to wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discarged.
6. Damaged wire or loose connections at battery terminals especially the ground cable at BOTH ends, ignition coil, or plug between ignition sensor and module.
7. Intermittent short circuit due to damaged wire insulation.
8. If your bike has a CKP sensor you must leave both plugs in
head and check for spark with a 3rd plug. Good luck.
