Starting rear disc change

Was going to replace rear cowbell. Reading in the Clymer it seems like the ABS ring is a big deal. If you mark the location and put it back in the same location should it be a problem or do you still have to go thru shimming and air-gap setting? Also...how neccessary is it to get two new attachment screws? Is it due to heating them it takes away any temper?

Thanks!

Re: Starting rear disc change

guess I need to give you guys a little more notice. Job is done. It looks like the "shimming" is only important if you move the sensor. Shimming has nothing to do with the ring. Hopefully the ring isn't critical (in thousandths anyway) to getting it right. Going to test ride now to see if the ABS light comes on....that's my only concern.

Re: Starting rear disc change

All is well. Lived with the cow bell for a year untill I had to replace the tire. Had the disc ready and waiting. Forgot what it was like to have "silence" during braking.

Re: Starting rear disc change

The check is done at the point where the ring is the farthest from the sensor and that gap must not be exceeded or it will loose contact. I have never had to adjust one but I always check it.
