Question about Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic Motorcycles
To change the switch, first unplug the wires at the switch. Screw the old switch out and install the new switch into the tee connector. Do not depress either brake lever while the switch is out. Tighten the switch and reconnect the wires.
Usually you don't have to bleed any air out of the brake system but check the rear brakes for proper operaion. If the rear brake pedal goes too far down, bleed the brakes at the rear caliper. Make sure you don't run the rear brake master cylinder dry while bleeding the rear brake. Use only the approved type of brake fluid, do not mix the different types of fluid. Make sure the rear brakes are working properly before riding the bike.

THIS IS A PRESSURE SWITCH IN THE REAR BRAKE LINE...JUST FOLLOW THE LINE FROM THE MASTER CYLINDER TO THE BLOCK CONNECTING THE LINES. YOU WILL SEE A ROUND UNIT WITH 2 WIRES COMING OUT OF IT. PULL THE WIRES OFF AND LOOSEN THE SWITCH WITH THE RIGHT SIZED WRENCH. THIS LINE WILL BE UNDER PRESSURE, SO YOU MIGHT WANT TO BLEED THAT OFF TO AVOID A BIG MESS. AFTER INSTALLING THE SWITCH...BLEED THE REAR BRAKE. YOU CAN GET THIS SWITCH FROM J&P CYCLES ONLINE OF AT YOUR LOCAL HD DEALER...
