2013 Road Glide Front Brake Calipers

My front tire feels like it is dragging when cornering. I had it looked at in Boise, ID on my trip last year and they told me my front calipers need rebuilt. I have searched everywhere and can't find a rebuild kit or parts for my front calipers. Can anyone point me in the right direction where I can find the parts to do this myself? Thanks for any help you can offer.

You can always call up a super store like Dennis Kirk or jP cycles . They both have decent CS.

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

Thanks, I looked there but didn't see them last time I looked. The Cycle Pro set says they don't work on Brembo's. Which I am assuming mine are.

None of them have replacement parts for the Brembo style brake calipers. Arlen Ness/Cycle Pro they do.

Cycle Pro Brake Caliper Rebuild Kit

After a great deal of reading and searching, I found some other forums. I was directed to the Cycle Pro HD Caliper Seal and Pistin Kit, Brembos CP#19257. This kit says for 06 and up and was $55 on Amazon. I did a search on Amazon with my bike and it directed me to a different kit. The reviews on that kit said it DIT NOT fit Brembos. I had to add the part# in order to find these. I will hopefully get to this project in the next week or two in between the rest of my projects and will return with an update.....

If anyone was wondering, the Caliper and Piston Kit from Cycle Pro seems to fit. Everything went together smoothly. The pistons are a different material and I'm assuming that isn't going to make a huge difference. I am having trouble bleeding the brakes. The ABS light is not on so that is a good thing. I'm going to let it sit overnight and try again in the morning.

Not sure about abs, but bleeding non abs is a breeze with Mighty vac Vacuum pump.

Just incase you're wondering why you are having such a hard time finding replacement parts for the brembo brakes on your 13 glide, IT'S BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT REBUILDABLE! That's pretty much spelled out in the service manual and on most forums as well. Sorry, them's the breaks, pun intended. If you were able to rebuild them you still need to take the bike into the shop to have the brakes bled if it's abs, You cannot bleed them manually with ABS something about the distribution block.
