Rear disc rotor replacement...

on a 2001 k1200rs

Hi guys, I was hoping you could help with a problem. I have a warped rear rotor that needs replacement. I'm reluctant to shell out the $300+ needed for a new rotor/ABS ring and was wondering if anyone here has ever replaced just the rotor. I took off the rear wheel to get a good look at the assembly and it looks like the rotor is riveted to the ABS ring gear.

any help/experience on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
-Daniel

Just did mine a couple months ago. Replaced the whole thing, disc and rotor. Not hard, just expensive. $300 seems to be the going rate. Made my old disc into a clock.

Don't forget to put NEW pads on at the same time.

I've seen online that you can purchase the rear disc for about $110. The problem I see is how to get the old disc off of the ABS ring and attach the new one...rivets galore.

Did you replace your caliper as well?

try some of the salavage guys

these are a couple BMW salvage guys that might have what you need. Make sure to get the rotor thickness to make sure the used part still has life left.
