Question about 2006 Harley Davidson FLHT Electra Glide Standard

1 Answer

2006 Harley Electra Glide rear brake pedal sticking.

The fluid was dirty so I did a reverse bleed replacing all the fluid, thinking this might clear a blockage in the return port. No results, pedal does not return. The pedal seems tight, definitely doesnt have any "spring" in response. The rear brakes seem to operate normally, but the brake pedal has to be returned manually, by hand or getting a boot under. I'm guessing its the master cylinder, either a port is still clogged, or an o ring or seal is "rolling" when the pedal is engaged.

How to bleed rear break on dyna glide bike


Bleeding the brake is not difficult but it must be done in a certain way. Follow these directions exactly. First remove the top from the rear brake master cylinder and check the fluid level. If you add fluid during this process, make sure you are putting the right kind of fluid in the reservoir. It should be printed right on the top cover of the reservoir. Place the top back on the reservoir but you don't have to put the screws in it. All we are going to do with it at this point is keep brake fluid from splashing on your bike. To bleed the brakes, depress and hold the rear brake pedal. Open the bleed valve on the rear brake about a half turn and allow the brake fluid and air to bleed out. Close the brake bleeder valve. Release the brake pedal and check the fluid level in the reservoir. Do not allow the reservoir to run dry. Continue to bleed the brakes until you have a full firm brake pedal. Then top off the reservoir and replace the cap and screws. You can put a piece of small diameter clear hose on the end of the bleeder valves to direct the brake fluid into a catch jar and it makes this job much neater. Do not allow the brake fluid to get on painted surfaces as it can damage the paint.

Good Luck
Steve

Replaced rear master cylinder and pads bled brakes replaced banjo washers bled about a dozen times, still have half pedal until after first press then gets a good brake??


" still have half pedal until after first press then gets a good brake". This tells me that you still have air in the brake system. Bleeding the brakes is not difficult but it has to be done in a specific manner. To bleed the brakes, follow this procedure exactly. Depress and hold the rear brake pedal. Open the brake bleeder valve and allow all pressure to bleed off. Close the bleeder valve. Release the brake pedal and check the level of the brake fluid in the reservoir. Do not allow the reservoir to go dry. You can put a piece of clear plastic hose on the bleeder valve and direct the fluid into a container to reduce the mess. If this does not resolve the problem, check the freeplay of the brake linkage. You want to reduce the freeplay but the master cylinder plunger must return fully in the master cylinder. Adjust the linkage to where you have about a half inch if free travel before the linkage starts to move the master cylinder plunger. If you get it too tight, when you apply the brakes, they will not release and continue to get tighter with each depression of the foot pedal.

Good Luck

How do i bleed rear brakes on 2006 heritage classic


First, remove the top cover from the rear brake master cylinder. Check the fluid level height. Make sure you're using the correct type of brake fluid. It's written what type to use right on the reservior top cover. Do NOT allow the reservior to run dry during the brake bleeding process and be careful with the brake fluid, it can damage your paint. Check the fluid level and temporarily replace the top cover on the master cylinder by just laying it on top of the reservior.

Now, to bleed the brakes you must do the following steps in this exact sequence.
  1. Depress the rear brake pedal and hold it down
  2. Open the brake bleeder valve on the rear caliper
  3. Allow air and brake fluid to bleed out
  4. Close the bleeder valve
  5. Release the brake pedal and allow the cylinder to refill for a short time.
  6. Check fluid level
  7. Repeat if the brake pedal is not high and firm.
Good Luck
