rear disc

Any one had problems removing the rear disc (two bolts)?? I do not have the problem yet but an associate had heaps of problems getting the two bolts out when he changed the rear disc on the brake. He had to drill and use eazi outs.

I assume you're in here:

Those screws can sieze in due to the water and heat. Most important don't damage the head otherwise you are into extraction.

I always use an impact driver with the correct size head for the screw. If it doesn't shift on the first couple of taps, heat it up a bit and try some more.

Since the rear disc and ABS ring is integral, it costs $$$'s.

Mine came right out with a little heat (170F) from a heat gun. I suggest using a NEW 6 point too!

I find the impact driver (hit with a hammer version) very useful on this bike. Used it first in anger on the Loctited bolt holding the steering damper. However, I spoiled myself on an air impact driver a few weeks back, forward planning to use it on the rear swingarm bushes.

I've never seen the same thing as an electric tool, but if somebody makes one it would be a useful tool to have. These devices are curious when you meet Loctited fixings. You can put a wrench and long bar on a bolt exerting enormous force and nothing moves but you damage the head or at worst shear it. Several taps with an impact wrench just works a dream.
