Question about Harley Davidson Motorcycles

If only one side is not working it is not likely something you did with the pad replacement. Check your bulb first and if it is the correct bulb and it is installed correctly start checking your wiring next.

SOURCE: Stuck Brake Pad Pins
I suggest pulling the axle out a bit to allow the caliper assy more freedom of movement. Then see if you can get the pins out. If not, you can put something (like a piece of wood) between the pistons and the rotor on the outside and gently pump the pedal to see if that does in fact loosen the pins. But a more fundemental question: is the new floating rotor the EXACT diameter as the OEM (or whatever was on there) rotor? It sounds to me like the rotor is jammed against the pins. If it is the same size, are the new pads the same shape as the old ones (same profile on the metal backing)?

there is 2 bolts on the caliper take them off and there are pad pins that need to be taken out.. inside the caliper there is a metal clip where the pad sits in.. put them in the same way they came out once you start its pretty self explainatory.. you should not have to blead them

Not sure I understand your question.The tail light filiment goes on with lights and brake light filiment goes on when brake is applied.The extra filiment makes the tail light go brighter.If both filiments are on when lights go on then applying the brake won't change the intensity.You might have bad brake light switch causeing brake light to stay on.Have to do some checking to see if it's front or rear switch.

You must take the two bolts out that holds the caliper to the caliper bracket. Lift the caliper off the bracket and set it aside. Carefully examine the pads and the anti-rattle spring that is in the caliper bracket. Take the old parts out and install the new parts exactly like the old ones were in there. Make sure you put the fiber side of the brake pads towards the rotor.
Now, you must press the piston back into the caliper in order to get it over the new pads. I use either a large C-clamp or a pair of slip joint pliers to force the piston back into it's bore completely. Once you have this done, carefully place the caliper back over the pads and onto the bracket without disturbing the pads.
Now, slowly depress the rear brake pedal repeatedly until you get a full firm brake pedal. Do not ride the bike until you get a good brake pedal and test the brakes.
