  • 81 FLH vs. 81 FLT rear calipers

    I recently purchased a 1981 FLT rear caliper for my 1981 FLH but the bleeder screw is on the opposite side. Is it possible to to remove the bleeder and switch sides?

    What does a magnifying glass and a flashlight show inside after removing the bleeder screw?

        I just used the same brake line and routed it to the front.
        It does pass over the front of the caliper but it’s not seen with the saddlebags on.
        The 2 holes aren’t the same iirc.

          I was wondering if that internal part was removeable, and interchangeable.
