2007 GL1800 Rear rotor change

Post by Kvescovi »



Looking for information, directions, pics, videos, etc on how to change the rear brake rotor on a 07 GL1800. Only see pad changes on You Tube. Any help is appreciated. Also looking for reputable brand manufacturer (OEM) for rotors and ceramic brakes. Avoiding sintered brakes. Would rather wear out pads than rotors.

Thanks

Ken

You have to remove the rear wheel to access the rotor then there are 2 JIS screws to remove and the caliper to remove the rear rotor.

Remove 2 JIS screws to remove the rotor once the caliper is off the final drive assembly.

EBC makes a version, but you really want to stay with Honda OEM for this part: New GL1800 Rear Brake Rotor
