You have to remove the rear wheel, then the rotor bolts onto the wheel with six bolts. when reinstalling it, tighten the bolts in a star pattern, to 29 ft-lb. Look at How to remove and reinstall your rear wheel - under the "Reinstalling the wheel" section, the first two steps. Keep in mind, that tutorial is for the GL1100, so the bolts are torqued to 29 ft-lb, not the 22 ft-lb used by the GL1100.
