Bikes & Babes accelerates you into the real-life world of custom motorcycle building. It’s all smoke, fire, and steel without the DRAMA. iKuztom’s 13 episodes get you up close and personal with an elite group of builders on the cutting edge of motorcycle engineering. Metal workers, engravers, air brush artists, and 3D fiber-glass molders and carvers weld, bend, cut, grind, paint, and polish bikes into creation before your eyes. Featured bikes include street fighters, art bikes, theme bikes, monster bikes, café racers, cruisers, rat bikes, sport bikes, scooters, bobbers, and yes, even choppers. All this blood, sweat, and passion is framed by fast-paced comic sketches, beautiful models, and burning rubber.
Bob demonstrates the proper technique for checking, servicing and replacing Harley brakes on the rear wheel caliper of your Harley Sportster. He shows how to loosen the caliper, remove the brake pads and install a new set. Once they are in place, he pumps the rear brakes to make sure the caliper is making solid contact with the wheel and checks the fluid reservoir. If the fluid level is low, you should either bleed the brakes or replace the fluid. More Maintenance Videos are listed here.Watch Now >>

Bob and Mark demonstrate the best way to empty Harley fork oil from your Sportster’s front fork sliders and replace it with new oil. It can be a two-man job, so try to complete the service with a friend. Newer bikes mostly use 39-millimeter forks, but most bikes are preset with varying levels of spring in the sliders, so consult your manual before you begin this service. Like any other service, you should clean all of the parts that you remove with parts cleaner to ensure that your bike operates smoothly between services.Watch Now >>
