Member here "Wedge" was the first I knew that had the problem and honestly it was probably 10 years ago
I think he changed brake pads and the problem started (as did mine)and he ended up at the dealer and after trying everything including a new caliper they tore down the master cylinder and found the cup torn,the rebuild kit has changed numbers twice since new,the '07 kit has a different part number (42810-07A which has changed at least once) but I suspect thats because the 07 uses DOT 4 fluid where the 04-06 uses DOT5

J&P Cycles and Dennis Kirk both have a section on brake linkage. You should be able to find the proper set up there.

Yeah, I been there. Buy, borrow, or rent an appropriately-sized "Easy out" bolt extractor (get the one with many, small flutes instead of one with fewer, larger spiral flutes). These tools "dig in" when torqued counterclockwise. Use a breaker bar and turn it to the "left" (ccw) and twist it until the capscrew breakes loose. Use the largest extractor that will fit into the Allen head, and smack it straight-on with a hammer (not gently). This will set the extractor into the remains of the bolt, and, will make it bite in when torqued.
Good Luck,
Joe
