Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide
To remove front tire. Raise the bike off the ground so that the front tire is just barely on the ground. Remove the large nut on the axle and loosen the two bolts on the axle clamp on the other side of the wheel. Drive the axle out. Now, roll the front tire out from under the front fender being watchful of any spacers and speedo drives that are with the front wheel. Remember which side any spacer go and mark them. Reassembly is virtually the reverse except that you may have to use a screwdriver to spread the front brake pads. Make sure you get the speedometer drive tang in the hole on the front disc if you have a mechanical speedo drive.
To change the rear brake pads, remove the two bolts that hold the rear caliper onto the caliper support bracket. Carefully lift the caliper off the bracket. Notice how the rear pads and the anti-rattle clips are positoned on the caliper support bracket. Replace old parts with new parts.
You'll need to depress the brake piston back into the caliper in order to get the caliper back on over the new pads. Use a large C-clamp or pair of slip joint pliers to depress piston back into the caliper. Use a rag or something to prevent damaging the paint on your caliper. Reinstall the caliper down over the new pads being careful not to disturb them. Replace the two bolts and torque them to 25 foot pounds. Pump the brakes back up to a full pedal by pumping the rear brake pedal up and down slowly. Check for proper operation of the brakes. Failure to properly service the brakes can cause serious injury or death.
