I also have a 55 page Adobe PDF version if you want to print the DIY. Send me a PM and I'll email it to you. It's 15MB so I cannot post it here as an attachment.
Yorgi, excellent, excellent write up! Many thanks for your time and efforts in producing this. I used it the other day and have the following comments:

1. The front brake rotors on the 650 come off easily without removing the caliper carrier. You just rotate them out after pulling them as far forward as you can. They go on easily the same way.

2. Getting your hand behind the box which houses the front brake sensor connector to release the latch was impossible for me. So I used a small screw driver and put it between the "loop" that makes up the latch. This made it easy.

3. The part number on the Permatex Ceramic Extreme Brake Lubricant is actually 24124, not 24125 as you have listed.

Other than that, your DIY was perfect. Outstanding! And, again, thank you.
