I took my 2002 ultra back to the dealer for the 500 mile checkup
with only one complaint...the front brake seems like it does not fully release....It does not drag enough to even generate heat but it make a very annoying noise...you know the sound...The dealer has told me that it is the most common complaint they here about these bikes. they say they have talked to Harley and tried a bunch of different things but no reliable fix...live with it essentially

Anyone else have any experiences with this

Thanks for the info... The dealer said Harley changed in 2000 to this style of mounting
because it works/stops better. That may be true but at slower speeds the
noise of the pad rubbing the rotor is terrible...sounds like you need a brake job.
I've taken the brakes apart on many peoples cars to fix that kind of a noise.

Sorry to sound like a complainer but...$ 22,000 and I have to listen to that :rolleyes:
My 25 year old Sporty stops great and the brakes don't make a sound.

I guess I'll try some better pads

thanks again for the info
