Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FLHRS - FLHRSI Road King Custom
Had same pronlem w/2000 Road King. Noise would go away when front brakes gently applied. Remove front calipers, remove pads and clean throughly to remove any dirt, sand, road grime or rocks. Road test to see if problem goes away. If not, jack it up enought to get front tire off the floor. Rotate fron tire. Should rotate smoothly w/no hard spots. If it does not you have a piston sticking in one caliper. Dual discs if front? Don't know which side is dragging? Start cold, go for a 10-15 minute ride not using front brake and feel each rotor comparing diff in temperature. Careful they can be darned hot. Anyway the warmest one is probably sticking. H-D has a repack kit w/special lube for the pistons. Lotsa Luck.
