Servicing brakes?.... where to clean, lube, etc.
Thanks B3Hulk!
Realised my rear brakes are worn pretty badly, almost down to bare metal which is concerning. I will do a write up on those for sure.

Hey Hulk,just curious,Why'd you get rid of the Vulcan s ? You decided you wanted More power? Or are you just tired of wrenching on your Vulcan? In any event, enjoy the Indian,Wish I could afford 1..... (y) :cool:
Honestly, I just felt like I have out grown it . Its a great bike without a doubt but, bought it in 2018 and have done 60xxx kms on it , I think its time. I test rode a few bikes , MT09 , KLR , M109R , Indian scout but ended up loving the Indian Springfield Darkhorse. It is expensive but it holds its value in case I want to sell it. Plus, it is a beautiful looking bike.

Just finished a write up and video on how to replace your rear brakes. The front and the rear are the same , the only difference is not to let your caliper hang when you are working on it.
