Now go Remove the front caliber then the front tire after that finish the rear tire.

I do it in this order for balance on the lift.





Be nice and support those calipers. I keep strap leather strings around.





Yep they are done past the wear bar.





Time for some bourbon. New ones on tomorrow.



Thanks

This is your friend for all harley bearings. Lower unit grease I like evinrude as it has the best surface tension of all them out there.

I put the lower unit grease on all the beating that get wet. Lower unit grease is special or Repels water very well.

Since the wheels are off let's polish the rims up. Mother's polish, the ball and cone and they will look great. Especially back rims don't get as clean as when they are off the bike.

When done a test ride. Was successful




A word about the service manual. Refer to it and you should own it for your bike.

Can we compare Snap On tool boxes?





Mine's a Harley Davidson 90th Anniversary Snap On box. :)
Very Nice........ I do like them a lot. The quality of these tool boxes is outstanding. I also love their tools, but for odd ball stuff I still use off brands unless I am going to use it more than one in a while.

Sometimes it takes the backbone server a little time to download the pictures.

Where did you pick up that cone attachment? I have the ball but can seem to find the cone anywhere. :(
