Hello Dale, this is an easy job on your bike. Use a flat head screw driver and remove the brake pad will pop off.
Remove the hairpin type clips off of the ends of the brake pad pins.... Use pliers & pull the brake pad pins out from the front of the rear brake caliper....Clean the rear brake caliper's piston with brake cleaner. Use a rag and wipe it clean...Reinsert the old brake pads into the caliper. Place a pry bar between the brake pads, then push the inner piston into the caliper body, this will allow room to install new pads.... Remove the old brake pads...Coat the brake pad pins and the new brake pads metal back plates with high-temperature grease.

Slip the new brake pads into the rear brake caliper, then push the brake pad pins halfway into the caliper. Slip the spring clips into place between the brake pads and the brake pad pins. Push the brake pad pins completely through the rear brake caliper. Push the hairpin clips back into the brake pad pin tips. Snap the brake pad cover onto the top of the rear brake caliper....

Pump the rear brake pedal until the pedal feels firm, indicating that the brake pads have closed around the brake rotor...No bleeding will be needed because the system was never opened - That's all there is to it...i hope this information is helpful & good luck with your bike.

Replacing rear brake pads on 2004 harley davidson fxst

Remove the two bolts that hold the caliper into the caliper bracket. Lift the caliper off the bracket and set aside. Do not crimp the hose as this can damage the hose on the inside.

Notice how the pads and the metal anti-rattle clips are positioned in the caliper bracket. Remove the old pads and clips and replace with the new parts. Make sure the rear pad is positioned with the fiber material towards the rotor. I've seen many put in metal to metal by good mechanics because it's on the backside of the rotor.

Now, you must compress the piston back into it's bore in the caliper. I use either a large C-clamp or a large pair of slip joint pliers to do this. Use a rag or something to prevent scratching the paint on your caliper. With the piston compressed completely back into it's bore, carefully replace the caliper into the caliper bracket. Do not disturb the pads or clips.
Install the two bolts with a bit of blue Loctite #242 medium hold on the threads and torque to 20 foot pounds. Check the level of the brake fluid in the master cylinder.

Slowly depress the rear brake pedal and release until you have a full firm pedal. Test the brakes before you ride the bike. Improperly serviced brakes can cause serious injury or death. Make sure they work correctly before riding the bike.

Good Luck

How do I replace rear brakes on a 1200 2007 harley sportster

Remove the two bolts that hold the rear brake caliper into the rear brake caliper support bracket. Lift off caliper. Notice how the pads and anti-vibration clips are positioned in the rear brake caliper support bracket. Install new pads and anti-rattle clips or springs.

Now, using a large C-clamp or a large pair of slip joint pliers, depress piston all the way back into the caliper. Carefully reposition the caliper back on the rear brake caliper support bracket without disturbing the pads or clips. Install the two bolts and torque to 25 foot pounds of torque. Slowly depress and release the rear brake pedal until a good firm pedal is obtained. Check the brakes for proper operation prior to riding the bike. Failure to properly service the brakes can cause sever injury or death.

98 harley davidson rear brake assembly for a fat boy

The rear brake system consist of a rear brake master cylinder, a metal line that has a tee in it for the rear brake switch, a rubber brake hose and a rear caliper.

I'm not sure what you are wanting to know. The rear brake caliper is held into the rear caliper bracket by two bolts. Remove the bolts and the rear caliper will lift off of the caliper bracket. With the brake caliper off the bracket, notice the position of the pads and especially the stainless steel anti-rattle clips. When you replace the pads and clips, make sure you get them in correctly.

Now, you'll have to compress the piston back into the caliper. To do this use either a large pair of slip joint pliers or a large C-clamp. Use a rag or something to protect the paint on your caliper. Carefully slid the caliper back down over the pads while not disturbing them. Install the two bolts and torque them to 25 foot pounds.

You brake systems, both the front and the rear, take type DOT 5 brake fluid as best as I can remember. Harley has changed the type of brake fluid but I cannot keep up with the year model. It should tell you on the tops of the master cylinder.

Extreme care must be taken whenever working on brakes. Make sure they work properly. Failure to test the brakes for proper operation prior to riding the bike can result in sever injury or death.

Right side rear brake drags

Remove all rust from pad and caliper sliding surfaces,eg metal to metal,not the pins,they get synthetic brake lube. Apply anti-seize to all sliding surfaces. Make sure you can screw in the rear caliper piston,if applicable, and manually ratchet up the parking brake,after caliper and pads are on. Bleed/Flush all 4 Wheels. Make sure you can slide the pads back and forth,before lubing end tabs. You may need to file a little off the ends or just remove the paint. Make sure parking brake cables are really releasing.

2003 bonneville rear brake job. Do I need a special tool to remove pads from calipers. I have done many brakes and rotaors but auto parts person says I may need a special tool to remove pads.

Once the caliper is taken off the rotor a screwdriver can pop the pads off. New pads will have metal spring clips to attatch back on the same way.

Want to install new brake pads

Whenever servicing brakes, extreme care must be taken to ensure that the job is done correctly. Severe injury or death can result from an improperly done brake job.

To replace the rear pads, remove the two bolts that hold the caliper in the caliper bracket. Lift the caliper off and move it out of the way. Do not crimp the rear brake line. Take notice of how the pads, the stainless steel pad clips and the anti-rattle spring is positioned in the caliper bracket. Remover the old pads and brake parts. Install the new pads making sure you put the friction side of the brake pad against the rotor. Don't laugh I've seen many brake pads put in metal to metal, especially on the backside pad. Make sure the metal end clips are positioned correctly.

Now, you've got to press the piston back into the caliper so that the caliper will go down over the new pads. I usually use a large pair of slip joint pliers but a C-clamp works well. Make sure you protect the paint on your caliper. Remove the master cylinder top and watch the fluid level as you press the piston back into the caliper. Don't allow the master cylinder to overflow. Remove fluid if you have to. Once you get the piston fully pressed back into the caliper, carefully slide it into position while not knocking the pads out of their position.

Install the two bolts and carefully work the rear brake pedal until the pedal feels normal. You may have to depress the pedal a few times before it feels right. Top off the fluid level using the correct type of brake fluid. Never mix two different types of brake fluid such as DOT4 and DOT5 (US). This will cause problems in the future as they do not mix.

Before riding the bike, check for proper brake operation. When you do test ride the bike, test the brakes before you reach a speed of over ten miles per hour. Remember, it's you that is going to ride the bike first. Make sure you do this job correctly.

Take off the wheel, remove the brake caliper (2 bolts on the back), then the rotor just slides off, the wheel studs are part of the hub assembly not the rotor.
