Smile Rear brake disk on 07 680

HI just signed up very cool,

I just bought a used 07 rincon with 4600 miles. The rear disk on the drive shaft is loose seems to have a broken rivet. I bought it knowing this and was hoping I could fix it myself. how hard is it to disconnect the rear drive shaft to replace the disk?

Replace it with a 08 or new disc. It will not have rivets and last forever.

I just got it apart and was looking at the disk scratching my head thinking,( I thought honda engineers were smarter than that)

I am glad they fixed that thanks for the heads up!
Ill see if my local dealer has it in stock.

07 and older are more forgiving and more smooth braking but the rivets are not as reliable as the 08 and current. I replaced mine at 9000 miles and the new style is still holding at 22000

Got it switched out really not that hard just time consuming. thanks for all the help! the newer part is defiantly better built.

Now I just have to get rid of my 26" outlaws! not good for ride quality!
