Installing Rear Caliper – Sportster Models Removing The Stock Brakes SPORTSTER REAR BRAKE SYSTEM 84 & UP MODELS The basic steps are the same to install a PM rear brake caliper kit on any of the late model Harley Davidson “swingarm” style motorcycles; all require the removal of the rear wheel. Using a suitable lift, raise the motorcycle high enough off the ground to allow you to remove the rear wheel assembly. PHOTO 2 W a r n i n g Center the motorcycle on the lift so that it will not fall while you are working on it. Photo 2: Remove the rear brake caliper assembly by unscrewing the 2 caliper mounting bolts that go through the caliper into the caliper mounting bracket. Lift the caliper up and off the mounting bracket and brake rotor, move the caliper back out of your working area. Don’t remove the brake line from the caliper yet; you will do this just before you are ready to hook it up to the new caliper. The brake pads are held into the caliper mounting bracket by 2 spring clips; slide the brake pads out of the mounting bracket and remove the retaining springs. PHOTO 3 Remove Cotter pin and rear axle nut, slide rear axle completely out. Photo 3: Remove nut from Right rear shock and rotate belt guard up. Slide belt off of pulley and roll rear wheel back 6 – 8″. Photo 4: Remove original caliper bracket from swingarm

See photo (2), note how the spring at the rear of the cover is routed behind the brake pad retaining pin. Using one of the springs supplied hook both ends of the spring into the holes at the front edge of the cover. Clean the face of the caliper (area marked “Nissin”) with rubbing alcohol. Peel the backing from the adhesive tape on the inside of the cover. Carefully position the cover in place aligning it with the suspension arm and being sure it is seated flat against the caliper. Press firmly to secure the tape to the caliper. Next stretch the spring over the bleeder as shown in photo (1A). At the rear of the cover route the spring behind the brake pad retaining pin as shown in photo (2A). Hook the spring into the upper hole then using a piece of fine wire or string (dental floss works good) hook onto the open end of the spring as shown in photo (3). Pull the hook into the hole in the cover. Remove the wire or string. Check again to see that the cover is seated on the caliper and that the springs are secure and not interfering with the moving parts of the brakes. 2. Repeat on the left side caliper.

• Upgrade Your Pre- 2002 FL Or FXR Rear Fork & Get Rid Of The Crappy & Dangerous (Cleve Blocks) & Replace Them With A Stable System. • R & R your Swing Arm, Belt Drive, Swing Arm Pivot Shaft, and Rear Wheel. The paragraphs below are a photo journey into the replacement of a FL or FXR swing arm. To upgrade the pre 2002 FL, here is a How-To on cheaply replacing the poor parts Harley stuck you with. Now – Let’s Get Er’ Done • Pre- 2002 had weak swing arms and are known to fail. The cleve blocks are the cause of “Rear Steer” or “Rear Fork Deflection”. Harley came up with a patch in 2002, using bearings. Because the pre 2002 transmissions have a 5/8″ mounting hole for the 5/8″ swing arm pivot shaft, a conversion unit has been made. No transmission removal for boring is necessary. Under no circumstances, do I recommend drilling out the transmission case with a hand drill. The drill will “wander” (drift)! • Solution: Go to either a trike shop/manufacturer, e-Bay, or shop and buy a new style swingarm. Harley made an additional upgrade in 2007, try and buy this type 2007 & above). If upgrading to a 2008, Harley use 25mm (smaller than 1″) axles & wheel bearings, you will have to use 25mm bearings. With that said, let’s get on with it. • In the case of a 2007 swingarm; buy and do not pay over $40 for the swing arm and axle. You must use the corresponding axle as a ¾” axle set-up is different (along with wheel bearings & spacers). You positively can not use a pre -2002 HD stock wheel because the wheel bearing spacer will fit into the wheel. Buy 2002 & above style wheels as they (9 spoke) are cheep. • You are going to have to either bore out your stock rear caliper bracket or better still, upgrade your whole rear brake to the new model & sell yours on e-Bay. • I recommend doing the following before hand and have it ready for installation; Remove bearings et al. from the 2002 & later swing arm via press. Bike Work: • Jack up your bike using a center jack. Secure the bike so it will not fall over. You can also use a motorcycle jack. I use a motorcycle dolly

Install the new brake side control onto the stock location using supplied (10mm) bolts. 6. Install the new brake line with straight banjo adapter to rear caliper with the stock banjo bolt being sure to use a crush washer on both sides of the banjo fitting. Route the line back towards the front as the stock one was. 7. Connect the brake-line to the new reservoir/master cylinder with the supplied banjo bolt brake switch bolt making sure you have a crush washer on both sides of the banjo joint. 8. Connect the two wires from the switch to the stock wires that were clipped in step #1. Use the supplied connectors or solder them together. (This is a simple open/close switch so polarity does not matter) This switch operates by pressure so it will not work until the reservoir is filled and the brakes are bled. Shift Side 9. Loosen the two nuts on the shift linkage. Twist the linkage as necessary to remove it. 10. Remove the two bolts that hold on the left side floorboard/control and remove it from the bike. 11.

Finishing Up 14. Unbolt master cylinder lid and fill reservoir with bike manufacturer’s recommended DOT brake fluid. (Remember to never reuse or mix old brake fluid and NEVER mix DOT 4 and DOT 5 together.) Bleed the brakes per your service manual. Check fluid level in reservoir periodically and fill as necessary to maintain full capacity of reservoir. 15. Make sure that the brake light is working when the brake is applied. 16. Ride and enjoy your new Supreme Legends Forward Controls! **Note** We strongly suggest that you use blue Loc-Tite # 242 on all fasteners except the banjo bolts to insure that they stay tight.
