Replacing Rear Disc & Pads
« on: May 22, 2019, 11:38:57 am »
Recently I had to replace the rear disc on my R1200R which has the same rear disc as the R1200GS. After a lot of looking around for reasonably priced parts, I finally decided on an SBS (OEM-spec) rear disc & pads.

It was easy enough to take the rear wheel, disc & brake pads off.
Before re-assembling with the new parts, gave everything a good clean. I used WÜRTH's Brake cleaner & multi purpose cleaner.
I spend quite a bit of time removing the old locktight from the thread on the rear wheel carrier and matching bolts. This I did with a toothpick.

First it was fitting the new SBS disc to the rear wheel carrier. I gave the clean bolts a bit of new locktight (make sure to use the blue ones-NOT red). And cross-tighten the bolts to an initial torque of 12Nm and a final torque of 30Nm
Next was the rear brake caliper with new SBS pads. The two bolts connecting the caliper to the FD is tighten to 24Nm
Then the rear wheel went on, cross-tightening (diagonally) the bolts to 60Nm and finally I fitted the exhaust (silencer).

All torque settings are according to BMW spec.

This is a real easy job and saved me a chunk of money

That disk also is fitted to the K-series bikes.
A colleague had problems with SBS pads on the OEM disk as the pads are more aggressive than OEM pads.
I trust the SBS disk and pads are a better match.
