Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty wheel sensor.
2. Computer failure.
3. Faulty ABS pump.
4. Parking brake on (three-wheeler).
5. Low Hydraulic pressure due to system leak.
6. Faulty brake light switch.
7. Worn out brake callipers or pads.

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.

SOURCE: How do I change the front and rear brakes on a

Not too hard - Undo the two bolts on the caliper and then seperate the caliper and pull the old ones out. Insert the new ones and put the bolts back in to hold the caliper back together and then install them back on the bike with the two retaining bolts. Use a bit of lock tight (Blue) on the threads. Warning do not let anyone apply pressure on the brakes while you have them off the bike or you will have a mess and/or a problem.

WHY THROWING abs brake codes

If you changed from the proper engineered stock wheel and have not had the ABS reprogrammed this would be why but H-D will only have an ABS program for their deswigned part combinations in any case.

I have a 2009 Street Glide and I never recieved the recallon the breaks and just crashed my bike on Sept 1, 2013 on the freeway because I had no breaks.

From looking at the Government recall web site, there is no official recall on this issue, but there are consumer complaints.
Yours is about the 3rd or 4th person that I've read about that has an issue with the rear brakes suddenly failing.
Most of what I've read also involves leaking brake fluid from the rear brake light switch, or smoking, from the brake fluid under pressure when the brakes are applied, spraying onto hot engine parts.

To me, it seems Harley has gotten a bad batch of brake light switches.
