Rotor replacement

I am replacing my rotors with a set of wave rotors tonight.
Should I be putting some red locktite on the rotor screws? Anything else I should look out for? I will be replacing the pads all the way around as well.

I replaced all the bolt hardware on mine with new parts from BMW. The bolts came with pretreated threadlock on them. I believe it was medium strength blue. At the very least you will want to use a medium strength loctite. I don't think a permanent strength is required but someone else may know for sure.

There was another issue with the Braking wave rotors that was pointed out to me by Dr Curve. Since the Braking rotors are thicker than stock, the wave washers that maintain a slight gap between the rotor and bolt head will likely be squashed flat and there will be no gap. I took some measurements and found some stainless washers that corrected the gap and allowed the same spacing as the original setup. Here is a "link within a link" to that thread, Braking Wave Rotors

Aw come on! What a PIA! I wanted to get this on today so I can have them for the Lake George get together. I will measure the thickness of mine and see how they are.

stephen, it's not a big deal if you just ignore the spacer issue. After all, virtually everyone else but me is not using any spacers. I doubt if it will cause any problems that you would notice by leaving them off. It's really just an issue if you want them to be "correct" and had the time to order the spacers. You could always add them later if you wanted. I would recommend just bolting them up with some blue loctite and go have a good time.

Okay I will give it a shot tonight and see how it goes. I will measure the thickness just for giggles though.

They are 5mm thick and the wiggly washers will not be squashed flat. There is still some movement left.

Rotor bolts should never be reused. Replace them.

rebalance the tires... something about changes to rotating mass or some such...


edit: while my bike is in tear-down stage, got a best price/link for the Braking wave rotors?

I got mine from BMW Atlanta. THe price was slightly cheaper over all the BMW Santa Cruz but shipping was a lot less for me since I am on the east coast plus BMW Atlanta had everything in stock. I don't have a link because I just called them.

Ay, caramba! $729 plus shipping for 3 Galfer wave rotors from 58Cycle, about as good a price as I could find. $530 for the front rotors, $199 for the rear one.

I think I paid a little less than that. I will look at my reciept tomorrow. I just came in from the garage. I got the front installed tonight. I took me a little over an hour. I was going pretty pokey and cleaned the wheel while the rotors were off. I will do the rear tomorrow. I did have a bad rotor so it wasn't just to do it in my case.

I checked my receipt. I paid $666.75 delivery to my door in NY from BMW Atlanta. Say you are from the Pelican BBS.

Badger, I guess you could. I don' see why not?
