I bought a RM Element near the end of last season equipped with Shimano M-525 disk brakes that use tightening plates. What is the purpose of these plates? The only purpose that I can think of is to prevent the bolts from loosening and would not blue locktite serve the same?
Basically I want to replace the Shimano SM-RT60 rotors with some Hayes that I have lying around for no other reason than aesthetics and was wondering if I really need to use these plates.
