How do I change brake pads on a Harley.

What size is the caliper pin bolt? Someone told me it is a 12 point 4mm socket, but it doesn't appear to be that small.

You're right gs34... 1/4inch 12 points for the pads and 10mm 12 points for the caliper.

Also Pugsley you can look at the ''Self Help Tips''. I change my front and rear brake and got all the information from there.
It is very well done.
Good luck Budy
