chainging front brake discs

My brake discs on my 954 are warped and need replacing. How difficult is this to do. I suspect it's as simple as just taking the front wheel off? Any hidden difficulties associated with this?

Very easy. Take the wheel off and use an allen head wrench. I recommend torquing the them on reassembly but at a minimum use loctite on the bolts.

Re: chainging front brake discs

when i took mine off and put them on again i bolted them on the same way you'd do a car tire ( bolting one, then the opposite side, and working your way around). i did it that way just as a precaution.

Re: chainging front brake discs

Deffinitely a good idea to tighten the mounting bolts in a star pattern. Loc tite is also a good idea. I had my bolts back off right after I first got my bike, not a good feeling. It would be best to use blue loc tite, not the red. The red is a bit extreme and may make the bolts too difficult to remove next time. The blue us one step down from the red, and plenty strong enough. Not a mechanic, just putting in my two cents. This is just my humble opinion.
