The braking system on your Harley Trike or any motorcycle for that matter is one of the most important systems you have to maintain. We all love the wind in our hair or running over our bald heads. We also know what it’s like for someone or something to jump out in front of us. We want to go fast and stop faster. Bleeding brakes on a Harley trike is pretty much the same as on other models. Start off by cleaning the area you will be working in to prevent debris from falling into the master cylinder. Remove the cap and follow along as Bob and Mark push the fluid through the lines. Remember to do one side then the other. When done they will reinstall the tire, review Harley tire pressure and maintenance.
