  • Rear brake disc replacement

    I have been looking for any information about replacing the rear brake disc. So far, I have been unable to find a reliable source o info on whether you need to heat up the retaining bolts to remove them (due to thread lock adhesives), and if it is better to just go ahead and replace those bolts instead of reusing them. Maybe I'm just not phrasing the search question properly?

    If you are talking about the rotor the easiest way would be to heat them. I replace the OEM bolts with hex head bolts.

      I think he's intending to replace the rear rotor itself.

    My Clymers manual says if you replace bolts replace with oem bolts and threadlocker.

      Of course the manual will say that because they have no idea if someone would replace with a low/no grade bolt. the easiest thing to tell someone is to keep everything OEM. No liability that way. If you replace them with a hex head make sure it is a hardened hex bolt. Not gonna lie I don't remember the metric numbers for hardness and what is equal to grade 8.

    I removed my front ones with no heat, just a long allen wrench and I reused the same bolts.

        when you strip the Allen heads you drive a torx into the Allen hole and now the torx will hopefully remove it.

      Do yourself a favor and heat and use a impact driver as well... I fought one that I rounded and it was time NOT well spent
