Replacing the pads on your Fat Boy is not difficult but you need to pay close attention to the way things are put together as you take it apart. Particularly the little steel pad retainers and the anti-rattle spring. These parts are made and go together in such a way that it's very hard to describe how they go in.
To remove the pads, take the two caliper retaining bolts out of the disc brake caliper. These are usually Torx head bolts. Once you get the bolts out, the caliper simply slides to the front and off of the pads. You'll need a way to push the piston back into the caliper so it will go down onto the new pads. I usually do this with a large pair of slip joint pliers. Make sure you put a rag or something on your calipers so you don't damage the piston or the paint.
Now, look at the way the pads, the little steel pieces at each end of the pads and the anti-rattle spring are in the caliper support bracket. Remove the old pads and parts and install the new pads and parts in the same way. Make sure you put the fiber face of the pad TOWARDS THE ROTOR. Don't laugh, I've lots of people put them in backwards, especially on the back side of the rotor.
Now, carefully slide the caliper back down over the pads taking care not to knock the pads out of there positions. I put a little Loctite 242 (med. strength blue) on the threads of the caliper retainer bolts and reinstall them. Torque them to about 25 foot pounds.
Check the brake fluid level in the rear master cylinder and slowly "pump" the rear brake pedal until the rear brake feels firm. Wait a few minutes and mash the brake pedal one time to the bottom. If it goes down to lower point and then on the next "pump" is higher, you probably need to bleed air from the system.
Open the bleeder valve on the caliper, press the rear brake pedal to the bottom and hold it there, close the bleed valve, and then release the brake pedal. Continue to do this until all the air is out of the system and the rear brake pedal feels firm on the first time it's depressed. While doing this, never allow the rear brake fluid reserviour to run out of fluid. If it does, you'll have to start all over with the bleeding process. Use only DOT 5 brake fluid. DOT 5 and DOT 3 or 4 are NOT compatible and will not mix. If they are mixed, it will cause you a lot of trouble in the future.
Test the brakes before you ride the bike and then again when you first ride the bike at a very low speed. Failure to do this job properly can cause serious injury or death. Brakes must operate properly. Good Luck!

i'm no expert on new Hogs but try this.In car alarms disconnecting the neg.lead resets the computer.when you reconnect the neg.lead the alarm goes off.In your case turn the alarm off by turning the key on.Your alarm light keeps blinking like it's still on because it is.The blinking and ticking should time out so your battery won't go dead but the anti theft feature should still work.locks out the ign. or locks fuel pump if your injected.Since your battery saver doesn't work the system might be shot.If you have a chip in the key the system may not recognize it ,doesn't know it's you.Try unlocking the bike with the remote if it has one.I vote for the bad system,pull it out an wire around it.Good luck.

You don't if you can get the bike off the ground high enough to allow the wheel to come straight down. But, I'd just take the caliper off. It only has two bolts holding it on.

Tips for a great answer:
FIRST remove the front wheel and brake caliper.
SECOND remove the front fender
THIRD remove the slider tube cap, spacer and oil seal from the top of one fork side.
FOURTH loosen the pinch bolt and pull the fork side from the brackets.
FIFTH repeat Steps 3 and 4 for the other fork side.
