1500 rear brakes

Postby hap2 » Mon May 30, 2016 4:19 pm



I got pretty close to metal to metal / a bit of a grinding noise when I turn the rearwheel. Is there an easy way to take off that wheel? Also, where's a good place to get a rotor if the existing one can't be machined?

PS: It's a 92 1500SE

Thanx

Have a look at: How to remove and replace your rear wheel

As for the brake rotor...motorcycle rotors are much harder than automotive rotors, and typically cannot be turned, at least not on automotive lathes. If the rotor is scored, you'll be looking for a replacement. The part number for yours is 43251-MT8-000, and they can be had from Honda for around $270:

You can also get aftermarket rotors made by EBC, for roughly half that:
