  1. Urgent Help Front RIGHT Brake Pads dragging pretty badly

    Honda VTX 1800 Forums
    This seemed to start after I re-mounted my rim (replaced the front tire) last season. I followed the steps from Bare's VTX page as far as keeping the pinch bolts loose and slamming the front brake a few times (and even bumping tire into a curb) to supposedly set things into their proper...
  2. Used calipers

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums

  5. Question What's the gold (hex) plug on the rear caliper for?

    Honda VTX 1800 Forums
    I picked up the "Down Under Bracket" to relocate my caliper to the underside of the swingarm, so it's hidden by the pipes. When the caliper is relocated here, the bleeder screw is practically facing down, however, there is a gold-colored screw/plug that practically faces up. HDLParts calls it...
