Rear brake disk replacement
« on: October 05, 2018, 01:37:33 PM »
Hi All
Just had my 2013 tiger MOTd and they informed me the rear disk is worn and will need replacing.
The tiger is an ABS model.
1. Is there a handy DIY guide on the forum, as I cant find one?

2. If not, whats the torque for the single use retaining bolts for the disk
3. What rear pads are recommended for road use.
4. Any recommendations for suppliers for the disk, bolts pads

Many thanks

Got my Armstrong every rear disc from square deals avoid while ago. I use ebc HH front and rear. Manual says disc bolt torque is 22Nm. Abs ring bolt torque is 5Nm

I would check the state of the pads and discs yourself. Chances are there is months left in them, I got around 7 months more riding out of my front pads following dealer service advise that they were near the wear limit. If an item is picked up, car or bike, that isn't actually unserviceable I look to run it as far as possible using regular checks, or just before the next MOT (whichever comes first) rather than go straight out and renew, more so with the extremely high price of modern vehicle parts.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Sound advice, thanks. I have put a gauge on the disk and it is 5.8mm thick, with the pads there is lots of meat left.

Im not going to rush and do the job, but its good to plan ahead.

Thanks

Will at least I had the right number. Just in the wing place. So another story of not trying to get business for the dealer?
