Figure 2-66A. Front Brake Caliper - 1977 and 1978 FXS. 1978 FX/FXE

WARNING — Always clean brake system rubber parts by washing in denatured alcohol or brake fluid. DO NOT use mineral base cleaning solvents such as gasoline or paint thinner. Use of mineral base solvents will cause deterioration of the part and would continue to deteriorate after assembly which could result in component failure.

Inspect all components carefully for excessive wear or damage. Discard old seal (6) and replace with a new one.

Inspect brake discs bolted to wheel assembly and replace if warped or badly scored. See "Wheels" for disassembly procedure.

WARNING — The front brake and the rear brake pads must be replaced in pairs only for correct and safe brake operation.
