    Anti Seize ? 2014 R1200RTW

    Hello and Thanks!
    Quick questions: 1). Is there any difference in using copper anti-seize vs. aluminum when re-installing the bolts on the front brake calipers (after tire change).
    2). What is the torque setting? Does to change w/ AS?
    3). Should i be using anti-seize at all since the bolts look dry?

    Cheers!

    I would not be using anti-seize on those bolts. Reinstall them dry. Torque value should be in the owners manual (in the section about changing the front tire).

    Good Link Omega Man. I alway like Henzilla's advice. Light grease on the axle and wire brush the threads. I had been steered by a YT video and thought to ask.

    Yes, using any anti-seize or other product changes the torque values. Sometimes by a significant margin.

    Those bolts are meant to be installed clean and dry.

    Torque for the M10x65 bolts is 38 Nm

    As far as the general part of your question "any difference in using copper anti-seize vs. aluminum", I use copper anti-seize only (in the few places that I use any anti-seize), as I have found it seems to work best for me, however, that is only anicdotal and I have nothing but past experience to support it.
