Parking break front pulley installation

Can anyone provide instructions for replacing the parking brake front pulley without BUDS on a 2016 rt?

Why would you think that BUDS is required for doing ANYTHING for the parking brake ?
AFAIK, it is not involved.

What happened to the pulley that it needs to be replaced ??

The other day I made an emergence stop and locked up my brakes. This resulted in the caliper shifting, the parking brake cable shredding, the parking brake front pulley breaking and the Brake Pressure Switch Ass'y broken. Also, the caliper shifted far enough to hit and break the Axle Adjustment Support. Bike is 2016 RT special edition. I have all the replacement parts but I'm concerned about replacing the front pulley without buds (the Spyder manual says it's required after installation). I really don't want to take a guess for the pulley proper mounting and then tear things up again.

The BUDS system will certainly be required to properly bleed and re-calibrate the ABS/stability control brake system after all that work.....and if the book says it is "required" then it IS and there is no good way around that.

I'd be more concerned about WHY it happened the way that it did.
No matter how hard you stomp on the brakes, a caliper should never shift like that.

If you look at the picture of the caliper you notice that the Rear Caliper Support (plate with the slot) is pointed down. That slot is for a lug mounted on the inside of the swing arm to fit into which would lock the caliper in place. I'm assuming that plate was not aligned properly when I changed the tire and the force from locking up the brake was enough to spin the whole assembly out of place.
