I like that look! I might do this on both the Raider and Stryker.

OK this is not a "dust cover" Its there to help cool, by displacing the heat off the disc brake to this "cover" allowing the brake to perform better.

I agree with you. Here's my rationalization for removing mine: those who have stock exhaust have the catalytic convertor inches from the rear brake and ergo massive amounts of heat. Anyone with aftermarket exhaust have that heat source removed. If the front doesn't have a heat dissipator then when should the back given a 60/40 brake ratio at best? I personally haven't noticed any decrease in braking performance. But that's just me.

I haven't noticed any either. I don't ride my bike that hard anyway that would require me to use the brakes that much to build up so much heat. Not to mention, it just sticks out like a sore thumb and looks tacky once the factory cannons are removed. Just my two cents

Anyone recall what size of washers to use on these? been looking at various threads.. & no mention of size.. I know I "can" take a bolt in and fit it.. but it is so much easier if I "know" exactly what works.

Thanks!

Just cut slowly, I overheated my poor little dremel by trying to go to fast. After the second cut you can rotate the cover and start putting a couple of screws back in. I just used a regular washer to take the place of the depth of the disc. I also used some blue lok tight on each one. Just continue until you get all the screws back in.
How many washers per screw did you use to replace the thickness of the dust cover?

My advice is to buy the Warrior front rotor bolts as they are the correct size.
The washers just don't do it for me.
The bolts were too costly for what they are but my local dealer sold them to me for like 2.75 each + tax... Figured it was another 1 and done project so why not splurge a little...

This is such a great mod, and super simple! Today I pulled everything out to prep for a 250 tire tomorrow and went ahead and deleted the heat dissipator / cover. I cleaned up really nice and I love the way it looks!

For those who are looking for washer sizes and how many, I used 1/4" washers, but you will have to try them out as the tolerance to clear the beak assay is very tight . . . It is more than it looks in the pic, but just about 1/8" if that much.
The washers vary in thickness . . . I used two on each, making sure it was just enough to torque it in.

Thanks for the idea!!
