SOURCE: 2003 rear brake caliper lock up on a harley sportster

Check your pads to make sure they are in the right position and haven't started to wear too thin and move.
Check the operation of the pads is real smooth when you apply pressure on the lever (might need someone else to operate it while you look ).
Witth the rear wheel raised off the ground and the bike not running turn the wheel slowly and check to see if it warped. (I used to do this on my sportster by using a couple of car axle stands under the footpeg brackets and raising the bike up on an old hydraulic car jack - might not be the best way but it worked enough for me to get the rear wheel off to change tyres without spending a fortune-an extra pair of hands is really handy(!) here).
Look down the rear caliper and check that no **** from the road has got stuck in there anywhere.
check your wheel alignment - have you adjusted the belt lately or latered the set-up?
Hope something here helps!

SOURCE: How do I remove the wheels on a 1985 Troy Built Horse Rototiller?

Horse wheels are held on with a single roll pin. Pound out the roll pin and pray.....that the rims aren't rusted to the shaft. If the rims are rusted to the shaft, you have two choices. You can either put the new tires or tubes on the rim with the rim on the shaft...or you can work at getting the rims off the shaft. If you put tubes in, be sure the rim is free of sharp edges.....or you'll be sorry.

To get the rims off if they're rusted on, I've used a variety of techniques over the years. The most effective is to weld a nut on the spot where you removed the end caps. Use a nut that's the same thread as your bearing puller. Then use the bolt from your bearing puller to put pressure on the end of the shaft, pulling the rim off. A torch helps, but be careful or you'll be putting new seals in too.

SOURCE: how do i change the

Get the bike up off the ground, just slightly at first. Then take the nut off the axle. If your axle is inserted into the swing arm from the left side, start to withdraw the axle. If it's inserted from the right side, you'll probably have to remove the muffler(s). As you pull the axle out, remove and mark any spacers that come out. Mark where they go and in what direction they were facing. If you have difficulty getting the axle out, you may have to loosen the wheel adjusters on either side of the swingarm.

Once you have the axle out and the wheel sitting on the ground, start raising the bike more. As you come up with it, work the drive belt off of the pulley. You may have to remove the lower belt guard to do this. Do not twist the belt or squeeze it in a radius sharper than 4 inches or you will damage the belt. When you get the bike raised enough so that the rotor is clear of the caliper, start leaning eh wheel over and working it out from under the bike.

Seems like there are three spacers on a Fat Boy. Two are very short and go into the bearing seals on either side of the wheel, and one is a longer spacer that goes on the belt side. The spacer on the other side is the brake caliper bracket. Make yourself a drawing. Invaribly, you'll look at a spacer and wonder "did it go here or here". Drawings never lie.

When you put the axle back in, insert it from the left side of the bike. That way, next time you won't have to take the exhaust system apart. To adjust the belt, first get both wheel adjusters to the same length. The turn them each the same amount at a time moving the wheel backwards in increments. Once you get the belt tensioned correctly, the two adjusters should be the same lenght. This gets the rear wheel aligned correctly in the swingarm.

Check the operation of your rear brakes before you ride the bike. If you start hearing a "chirp" when you shift gears on the bike, your rear belt is too loose.

Good Luck

Break light doesnt work on back break only works on front

The rear brake light is operated by a pressure switch located underneath the bike. Find the metal brake line that comes out of the master cylinder and heads back towards the rear wheel. Somewhere in the line there is a "tee fitting" with the pressure switch screwed into it. Replace this switch.

Good Luck

2003 fxsts seized front wheel axle !!! I can't remove the front wheel to change tire :-(

there's no real easy way out if your axle is seized in there. You need to fiind a really big hammer, brace your front end up against some thing, and give the axle a good whack until it comes out. Unscrew the nut so its level with the axle. You just gunna have to keep wacking until it comes out. Try spraying some penitrating oil and letting it soak. It will come out, eventualy. The worst thing that can happen is you will need to buy a new front axle. Remember to grease it when you put it back. Also make sure any axle clamps are loose.

Rear brake will not keep its prime

a bent disc or bad wheel bearing can push the pads back, and you need to pump it for the brakes to work, or it requires a seal kit in the rear brake master cylnder
