2008 Springer front brake pad
« on: August 13, 2009, 08:06:33 PM »

I was cleaning the bike and noticed the front brake pad has a small thin shim pad glued to the pad itself. Mine was all smashed up inside the brake cylinder. I took the brake off and re glued the shim to the brake pad. I dont know if it will work so I guess I will just pick up a new pad this weekend. I figured I would mention it on the web site that way you guys could look at yours. One more thing does anyone know what I should torque the 2 allen heads holding the cylinder on?  Boy there sure isnt much holding that thing on there.

do you have the maint. manual for the 08?
i would hope it would have any torques needed listed in there.

Keep it between the lines and in the wind!
