    like many others i have to say thanks for this site and those that have provided their knowledge.

    i just did a rear pad change on a good friends street glide and saved him a few bucks. though i felt the pad pins were not tight when i started, when i torqued them i again didn't feel like they were tight enough, but went with the torque it called for. (180 -200 in. lbs) i'll be changing mine in a week or two.

    if time permits i'll be changing my fluids in the morning

    thanks again

    Good deal Labow, sharing ideas and helping out your riding buddy...it works...and you know someday, they may come to your aid when you need them the most...pay that good deed forward.

    Good for you Labow. It's a good feeling when casn do something youself and save some cash and being able to help out a friend is an extra bonus

    i have always been "the one" to help out others, and "the one" that never asks or hints to needing a hand with something. just the way i am i guess. it really ticks some of my buds off that i don't.
