Question about 2008 Harley Davidson FLHX Street Glide
Remove any saddlebags or anything that's in the way of accessing the brake caliper. Remove the two bolts that hold the caliper into the caliper bracket. Lift the caliper off of the bracket.
Note the way the pads and the anti-rattle stuff is installed into the caliper bracket. Remove the old parts and install the new parts.
Now, the piston has to be seated all the way back into the caliper. I used either a large C-clamp or a large pair of slip joint pliers to compress the piston back into the caliper. Use a couple pieces of thin wood or rags to protect the paint and finish on the caliper. Once the piston is all the way back into the caliper, carefully replace the caliper in the bracket without disturbing the pads. Replace the bolts and torque them to 25 foot pounds of torque.
Slowly pump the rear brake pedal until you have a full firm brake pedal. Test the brakes before you ride the bike. Failure to insure proper operation of the brake could result in serious injury or death.

SOURCE: replace rear brake pads
Remove right saddlebag, pull the two caliper mounting bolts and remove the caliper. Do not open bleeder or disconnect line. You will need to push a large screwdriver between the old pads before removing them in order to push the pucks back into the caliper or the new pads will not spread enough to reinstall. Then pull the two smaller bolts from the caliper and the pads will fall out. The pads are different for inside and outside, so pay attention, and remember, after reinstalling, before riding, be sure to pump brake pedal, and it may take a few stops before brakes stop as effectively as before.
