INSTALLATION 1. Remove and discard the screw and washer holding the rear brake master cylinder reservoir to the motorcycle frame. 2. See the Figure 1. Obtain the chrome screw (2) and washer (3) from the kit. Place the washer onto the screw threads. 3. Position the chrome rear brake reservoir cover (1) over the reservoir, lining up the holes. Fasten with the chrome screw and washer using the T27 TORX® key (6) from the kit. Tighten securely. 4. Slowly unscrew the original reservoir cap. Note the orientation of the reservoir gasket and the gasket collar, which may come off with the cap. Discard the original reservoir cap only. Set the gasket and collar aside for re-installation. Direct contact of D.O.T. 5 brake fluid with eyes can cause eye irritation, swelling, and redness. Avoid eye contact. In case of eye contact flush with large amounts of water and get medical attention. Swallowing large amounts of D.O.T. 5 brake fluid can cause digestive discomfort. If swallowed, obtain medical attention. Use in well ventilated area. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. (00144a) 5. Refer to the Owner’s Manual and follow the procedure to check the brake fluid level. Fill as needed with DOT 5 SILICONE HYDRAULIC BRAKE FLUID. Do not reuse old fluid. Only use DOT 5 hydraulic brake fluid from a sealed container. 6. Set the reservoir gasket back onto the lip of the reservoir and position the gasket collar onto the gasket. 7. Carefully position the new chrome cap (4) over the reservoir and screw it on. Tighten securely. 8. Clean the indented top surface of the new cap with a 50- 50 mixture of isopropyl alcohol and water and let it dry. 9. Peel the paper backing from the Bar and Shield emblem (5). Turn the emblem to the desired orientation and press it firmly into place on the top of the chrome cap. After repairing the brake system, test brakes at low speed. If brakes are not operating properly, testing at high speeds can cause loss of control, which could result in death or serious injury.

REMOVAL 1. See Figure 1. Remove the cotter pin (5) and washer (E) from the master cylinder clevis pin (B). Discard the cotter pin. NOTE The clevis pin has a slight interference fit. It may be necessary to use pliers to pull the clevis pin from the push rod. Be careful not to damage mating parts. 2. Remove the clevis pin (B) from the brake rod. Thoroughly clean and examine parts for wear. Replace if necessary. 3. Remove the brake lever mounting screw (A) and flat washer (D), and save for reinstallation, if necessary. Remove and discard the outer O-ring (2). 4. Remove the brake lever by rotating counter-clockwise and lifting the master-cylinder clevis if necessary. Pull the lever from the shaft. Remove and discard the inner O-ring. 5. Thoroughly clean the lever mounting shaft of grease and dirt. INSTALLATION NOTE These levers are equipped with self-lubricating bushings. It is not necessary to lubricate the mounting shaft or bushings inside the lever prior to installation. 1. See Figure 1. Insert the new O-rings (4) on either side of the lever bushings (2). Install the new brake lever (1) onto the mounting shaft. NOTE There is insufficient clearance to install the clevis pin from the outside, so it must be installed from the inboard side of the brake lever. 2. Align the holes in the lever and brake rod and insert the stock clevis pin (B) from the inboard side. 3. Install the small flat washer (E) onto the clevis pin and insert the new cotter pin (5). 4. Place the large flat washer (D) onto the brake lever mounting screw (A). Apply Loctite 243 (blue) to the threads of the screw, and reinstall into the brake lever mounting shaft. Tighten the screw to 12-16 ft-lbs (16.3-21.7 Nm) . 5. Install the brake pedal pad (C) to the brake lever. After repairing the brake system, test brakes at low speed. If brakes are not operating properly, testing at high speeds can cause loss of control, which could result in death or serious injury. (00289a) 6. Check the brake lever for proper operation and clearance through its full travel

Installation 1. For models equipped with air baffle: See Figure 1. Remove and discard the two hex screws (2) and flat washers (3) holding the baffle (1) to the fork stem and bracket assembly(4). Retain the baffle for later reassembly. For models not equipped with air baffle: Remove and discard the two plugs from the rear of the fork stem and bracket assembly (4). 2. Remove and discard the hex socket head screw (6) holding the brake line manifold (5) to the underside of the fork stem and bracket assembly. 3. Place the lower fork bracket cover into position covering the brake line manifold. Attach the cover (and the baffle, if so equipped) to the fork stem and bracket assembly with the two 1/4″ self-tapping hex screws from the kit. Tighten securely. 4. Install the 5/16″ self-tapping hex socket screw through the cover and brake line manifold into the stem and bracket assembly. Torque to 10-15 ft-lbs (13.6-20.3 Nm). 5. Verify that the throttle and clutch cables are routed properly and do not interfere with steering the vehicle. After disturbing the brake system, BEFORE moving motorcycle, you must pump brake fluid until the pistons push the pads against the brake disc. If you don’t pump fluid pressure up again, the brake will not be available to stop the motorcycle which could result in death or serious injury. After disturbing the brake system, always test motorcycle brakes at low speed. If brakes are not operating properly, or braking efficiency is poor, testing at high speeds could result in death or serious injury
