Question about 2003 Harley Davidson FLHR Road king
I have a 2003 Harley road king classic that I just replaced the rear brake pads on, and now the caliper is stuck. I have tried cleaning the caliper pistons, but still no luck.
Did u try bleeding the brake lines and flushing them? It just might me some dirt in there if that doesn't work you might have to replace it?

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.

Check your pads to make sure they are in the right position and haven't started to wear too thin and move.
Check the operation of the pads is real smooth when you apply pressure on the lever (might need someone else to operate it while you look ).
Witth the rear wheel raised off the ground and the bike not running turn the wheel slowly and check to see if it warped. (I used to do this on my sportster by using a couple of car axle stands under the footpeg brackets and raising the bike up on an old hydraulic car jack - might not be the best way but it worked enough for me to get the rear wheel off to change tyres without spending a fortune-an extra pair of hands is really handy(!) here).
Look down the rear caliper and check that no **** from the road has got stuck in there anywhere.
check your wheel alignment - have you adjusted the belt lately or latered the set-up?
Hope something here helps!

if you lower the front of the bike the same as you lower the back of the bike the only thing is dragging the pegs when you corner i have slammed one to about 2 ins off the ground

SOURCE: what is the recommended tire
For "one-up" rider, 30 psi in the front, 36 psi in the rear.
For "two-up" riding, 30 psi in the front, 40 psi in the rear
I have found that these pressures are safe and comfortable. Higher pressure in the front results in a harsh ride.
