Question about 2003 Harley Davidson VRSCA V-Rod
Check the level of the brake fluid in the master cylinder for the rear brakes. Then, try bleeding the brakes.
To bleed the brakes, open the bleeder valve on the rear brake caliper about a half turn. Press the rear brake slowly until it stops and hold it there. Tighten the rear brake bleeder valve while holding the rear brake pedal down. Then, release the brake pedal. Wait a few seconds and try the brake again. If it doesn't feel any better, go through the procedure several more times. Make sure you do not allow the rear master cylinder to run out of brake fluid. Check the master cylinder top cover or your owner's manual to find out exactly what type of brake fluid goes in the master cylinder. Do not mix different types of brake fluids. Dot4 and Dot5 (U.S.) brake fluid will not mix and will cause you severe problems. If this doesn't work, a complete overhaul of the rear brake system is called for.
