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.

      Hi Trat51 – Thanks for the feedback. The Sporty vids really cover from 1986 thru today. Make sure to check out all videos as there are some caliper changes over the years.

    I found this video on replacing rear brake pads easily, but I still cannot find the video for the front brake pads?
