You already know the basics i gather, just made sure you clean any ontact and sliding areas , apply a good lube like syl-glide on and moving parts, you may wat to apply a noise dampening compound on the pad if they don't come with noise arrestors, i recommend you loosen the bleeder screw to push the calipers back, and its a good time to flush the brake fluid

I have an 03 hetitage springer. It has 27000 miles on it. When its idling I don't hear the noise. The noise I am hear is like a loose chain ticing noise. Hear it when at a steady speed between 45


I have a o3 heritage springer also and I have the same problem and yes I was told that the noise is normal for 27000 and that replacing the lifters would solve it. I think I'd go with an aftermarket cams when I replace my cam tensioners again which by the way reduced some of the noise. Might want to check your cam tensioners.

Trying to bleed lines on my 2003 HD Heritage Springer. Fluid is staying in the reservoir and not distributing in brake line.


To bleed your brakes your brakes, you must do certain things in a specific order or you're just wasting time. First, take the top of the reservoir. Make sure it's full and if you add fluid, it must be tbe correct type. The correct type is written on the reservoir top.

Now, depress the brake pedal or the brake lever and hold it. Open tbe bleeder valve, allow the pressure to bleed off of the system, close the bleeder valve. Release the brake pedal or lever. check the level of the brake fluid. Refill if needed, do not allow the reservoir to run dry. Continue untill you have a decent pedal or lever.

Good Luck
Steve

The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.
