Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FXST Softail Standard
To get the rear caliper off, remove the two torx head bolts. Lift the rear brake off of the caliper bracket. The pads and the anti-rattle clips remain in the bracket. Set the caliper aside but do not allow it to hang by the hose as this can damage the hose. Do not crimp the hose.
Look closely at the pads and the steel clips on either end of the caliper bracket to determine how they go on the bracket. Replace the pads and steel clips.
You must then compress the piston back into the caliper. I used either a large C-clamp or a large pair of slip joint pliers. Make sure you cover your caliper with something so as not to damage the paint. Compress the piston all the way back into it's bore.
Replace the caliper back down onto the caliper bracket being careful not to disturb the pads or clips. Reinstall the two bolts and torque to 20 foot pounds.
Slowly depress and release the rear brake pedal until you get a full firm feeling pedal. Test brakes before riding the bike. Improperly serviced brakes can cause serious injury or death. Make sure you have done the job correctly. Good Luck, Steve
