Are you going to use the stock rotors or buy the matching design from whichever wheel company you use? Most of the time you'll need to use the wheel company's rotor bolts if you switch to their rotors. Most automatically include them, but don't forget to ask. Other than elongating the fender mount holes a little bit, it's a straight up swap. I'd highly recommend you consider doing the Progressive monotubes in the fork. Set it up to lower the front end 1" and that will pretty much get you back to where you started looks and handling wise, but the big gain is that the montubes transform the front end's ability to absorb stutter bumps and rough road surfaces in a corner. If you shop around they can be bought for around $260. (plus labor if not doing it yourself). Not absolutely necessary but you'll be very glad you did.
