Default How much is it going to cost?

So like a dumbass i slowly went into gear with a rotor lock on my bike. Long story short, i bent the rotor getting it off. How much is it going to cost me? Its a 2005 Vegas. Im assuming the whole rear tire has to come off? Just want a ballpark idea of what the dealer is going to charge me. I cant fix it myself since im away from my home on military training in Texas.

Why a dealer? If you have to take it somewhere you should take it to an independent shop, more or less cheaper but in most cases more friendly and knowledgeable... How bad is the bend? Being the rear tire you won't feel the bend as much as the front. I have successfully fixed rotors with the use of dial indicator and a crescent wrench....

Default Salvage yard

If you find an independant shop or mechanic. Maybe you can get him to take it off and take it to a salvage yard to match it up. Time is money though,so it might be cheaper for him to just get a new one.

Should only take an hour labour to change out, most of the cost will be the rotor...

I hope thats the case. The bend is really bad, my brake assembly is wobbling and it heated up really bad only going bout 3 miles. I would feel better just buying a new rotor. How much does a rotor cost? And an hours labor? I would think it would be more then just 1 hour, more like 4 at least but im still new to motorcycles. I will be taking it into the dealer on Tuesday when they open.

no way could it cost that much for a rotor, man. Stop sweating. The rotor will probably cost you more than the labor, since most shops charge like $40-$60 to change a rear wheel, and all they're gonna do is remove the wheel and unbolt the rotor from it, then bolt the new one in. I'd guess a half hour of labor (maybe less) at $70-$100/hour (depends on where you go), and the rotor which can't cost more than $80. I could be wrong there, having never bought brake rotors for a bike, but $80 would be pretty spendy for a car, so...probably about right for a bike lol

$200-300 for the rotor (new), $30-40 brake pads (new), $85 and up per hour for labor. What major city are you close to?

A rotor swap is easy as shit with the correct tools. Shop a rotor to find a price not really sure how much it will be, but on a guess it should be in the $100-$250 range, try and stay away from the dealer on the purchase as they will rape you.

I stand corrected. but good lord, that's expensive for a steel disc. I'd call Victory just to see if they're any cheaper, cuz really, how much more could one cost?
