    I have a 2004 Heritage. I went to replace the front pads and calipers and had the 1/2 drive 10 MM socket that removes the caliper from the frame.

    I noticed that there are also two bolts that hold the pads to the front caliper. I am not sure what the heck they are SAE or Metric. I believe they are 1/4 - 12 point SAE bolts.

    ANYONE HAVE THE CORRECT SIZE and type for the 2 small pad bolts?

    Thanks

    a 1/4" 12 point socket worked on my 2005 Heritage.

    My 08 model uses a 10MM 12 point for the front pads as well as the caliper bolts and a 1/4" or 6MM 12 point(can't remember which one and they are both in the tool bag:D) for the rear, go figure................
