Busted the whell nut stud yesterday and I see my brake rotor is seriously guged by the brake pad rivets. I have a 81 Rc with the locking front hus. What do I need to replace the rotor and I guess pop a new stud in there?

If it's part time:

Take wheel off, remove locking hub and all components, remove caliper, take off spindle nut, lock ring, and inner spindle nut, pull hub/rotor assy off--the outer bearing will drop out of the hub, try to keep it from falling in the dirt--then hammer out studs--I used a big brass drift to hammer out all five studs-- When all five are out, the hub and rotor will separate.

BTW, be sure to put a nut on the studs before you start pounding them out. Saves the studs. Big "Hand Sledge Hammer" works best. Also. not sure of the ' 81 model, but the later models required a special hub nut socket to remove those nuts inside the hub.
