Your brake system is dirty. the plunger he is talking about does not go bad often. drain all fluid from the system. clean out your resv. really good with brake kleen. Put fresh dot fluid in and use a vacume pump to bleed brakes this will do the trick.

Your transmission has a straight cut 5th gear and not a helical cut 5th gear.

SOURCE: How to adjust front brake lever on '06 hd road king?

This is by design. When you have new pads on the bike and a rotor within limits the lever has very limited travel before engaging.
As these parts wear the position of which the lever engages changes. Unless you know that at the last brake pad change the caliper was "centered" this could account for the travel and will result in premature wear on the components.

SOURCE: 2001 Road King Classic. Brake light stays on.

you may need to check the switch that the lever presses has a small wiring connection to it and you cannot miss it.Now I assume that you mean you have to push the lever back then the light goes off...If this is the case then you caliper or braking needs to be looked as the spring mechanism that brings the lever back into rest position is not working..

How do you change the front brakes on a 2008 road king

Unbolt the caliper from front forks (2 bolts).
You'll have to move the caliper as far down as the hose will allow to clear the edge of the fender with the caliper to get it off the disc.
Remove the "hair-pin" clip on the one pad bolt, then remove the bolt.
Pop the old pads out of the caliper.
If master cylinder is almost full of brake fluid, siphon some out.
Clean off exposed pistons, then press them back into the caliper.
By hand is preferable, but you might need a "C" clamp to do this.
Install new pads, and reinstall pad pin.
Torque to 75-102 INCH lbs., and install "hair-pin" clip.
Reinstall caliper, and tighten two mounting bolts to 28-38 FOOT lbs.

Because the pistons were pushed back into the caliper (to compensate for the thicker new pads), it'll take several pumps of the brake lever before the pistons move the pads out enough to make contact with the disc.
Keep an eye on the master cylinder fluid level (don't let it get so low that air is introduced into the system), and top off with DOT 4 brake fluid.

2008 HD Road King Classic: Running lights work, but brake/blinker lights do not.

Do you have a security system on this bike? If so, has the bike been hit or laid down? If not---

Check fuses and circuit breakers to ensure they are good.

I recently purchased some new grips for my 2008 Road King. The instructions seemed pretty simple. However, when I attempted to remove the switch housing, right side throttle grip, I could not seperate them...

It should be one screw on top and one on the bottom, once you have these, the top should come off. this should expose the throttle cable, disconnect the cable which should let the bottom drop down and you can now slide the grip off of the bars and install your new one. It may be necessary to move the front brakelever/ master cylinder to allow access, for the couple more screws move it out of the way to make life easier..

Don't forget to put a small wedge in the front brake lever, to prevent damaging the brake switch on reinstall.

Hope this is of some help.
