Remove the saddlebags or whatever so that you can get to the rear brake caliper. There are two bolts holding the caliper into it's bracket. Usually they take a Torx type wrench to get them out. Remove the bolts and set the caliper aside being careful not to put any stress on the hose. Sometimes there is a clip that holds the hose to the rear swing arm that you may want to take off to keep from bending the hose to sharply.

Once you have the caliper off, you can see the pads and the anti-rattle hardware associated with them. Look closely at the way the anti-rattle hardware is postitioned in the caliper so you can get it back in the same way. Now, replace the pads and hardware. Make sure you have the fiber face of the pads next to the rotor. I've seen many installed metal to metal, expecially on the backside.

Now, use a large C-clamp or a pair of large slip joint pliers to press the piston all the way back into it's bore in the caliper. Use rags or pieces of wood to prevent scarring the paint or the alumnium caliper. With the piston fully compressed, carefully slide the caliper back down into the bracket without disturbing the brake pads and hardware. Torque the bolts to 18-20 foot pounds.

Slowly work the rear brake pedal until you get a full firm pedal. Test the brakes before riding the bike. Failure to do this job correctly can cause serious injury or death. Make sure you do this job correctly. If your bike quits, it makes you made. If your bike won't stop, you could wind up dead.

Good Luck
Steve

Front and rear breaks seem to be soft and not griping. Break pads are good. 2003 Dyna super glide.


Check for wear, change pads when worn. Verify no brake line leakage. Some aftermarket pads cause differences with harder metals or softer dependant on the rotors type and composition and the rotors shoes would be the reason for innacurate braking.

How do you replace rear rotors and brake pads on 2006 Jetta


There is a special tool you need to do this. It is virtually impossible to do without this tool. I got mine from Harbor Freight for $20. the kit comes in an small orange case and has multiple heads and it pushes and turns at the same time. Do not use a C-clamp, it will damage the piston. This tool still does use some manual labor, but it is worth it when you save a few hundred dollars doing it yourself!
