    Does anyone know if there is a aftermarket outfit out there that will not charge me 30 bucks for 2 bolts like HD?

    Thanks, found some @ J P Cycles. Also took bike down the road and had to literally stand on the rear brake for stopping, air? Took Caliper off to put new pads in, should I bleed them?

    Stopping power could be the result of the compound of the pads. What pads did you install?

    I always bleed the system after installation.

    I always use oem brake pads as they are made to work with the oem brake rotor some aftermarket pads may give more wear on the brake rotor
