Honda rotor bolts are not re-usable; they are a torque to yield design. Make sure you get new ones.
I took a look at the factory manual for my 07 1000RR. The manual states to use new bolts when installing the rotor but does not indicate why.

I feel u can reuse them and have 100's of times when I had my bike shop. If I charged a guy everytime they came in for chrome or powdercoated rims, the customers would have flipped out. Never heard this before. I reused bolts on all my stunt bikes (all Hondas) and never had a problem. You can use the bolts from any F4,F4i,600rr,929,954,1000rr,RC51...they are all the same bolts. Also something that works good too is use a dab of RVG(silcone) on the threads instead of locktight. It keeps them from backing out and if you do want to take them out you can unscrew them without snapping the bolts or shaving your knuckles on the rotor.
