    The last time I posted I got some really useful help so here goes again.
    I've got some play in my brake lever on my Road King (FLHPI). Is there an easy way to tighten this without take the whole braking system apart?

    Depends on where the play is coming from. Try bleeding the system as a starter.

    My money is on dirty piston in the calipers. Easy fix
